Hey everyone! Kim here with a fun little product share!
When we were at Creativation, with the Creative Scrapbooker Team, in January, we saw this neat flower making tool called Fablossom. This product was being demonstrated with fabric and my first thought was ‘I wonder if it would easily work with paper?”, a few steps down their booth they had the paper version! SWEET!
The kit itself comes with everything you need to make plenty of different flowers, The instructions are very easy to follow, once you get a handle of the paper folding you are good to go! They include lots of all parts required to put the flower together, as well as a punch to create your own centers!
I immediately thought of all the paper I have on hand at any given time and figured I can cut circles to make this work with my own product! WIN!
I pulled out my 12×12 pad of Woodland’s Friends paper from Fabscraps and cut out circles using my electronic die cutting machine!
Here’s a step by step of the simple process. The tool is really well designed and simple. The “fingers” act like extra hands to hold things in place as you fold your circles!
Included in the kit are lots of fun designs for the center embellishment, but the punch is perfect to allow you to used matching elements to your paper or maybe a small stamped image!
The end results are a sweet flower to embellish cards, bags, banners, headbands…the uses could be endless! I chose to wrap a gift with one of the papers from the Fabscraps collection, add some ribbon and a Fablossom flower embellishment…so pretty! I’m always of the belief that if my papers and stash are in front of me…make a card! Makes for great gift giving!
If you come across one of these fun kits, add it to your cart! Addition supplies are available on their site. I think this would be a fantastic gift as well for a young, crafter in training!
