Yodel-Ay-Ee-Oooo (and a tut!orial!)


Here’s another image I colored on my trek across Missouri this past weekend. This is I Serenade You from Whiff of Joy.

I’d love to try yodeling. I’d love to play the guitar. I got one for Christmas several years ago, but somehow between the ins and outs of daily life, I’ve never made time for lessons. Maybe someday.

My dear Jenn sent me a link to a beautiful packaging idea the other day, and I knew I wanted to try the waxy-flower idea.

This was super easy since you can cut multiple layers of waxed paper with a large die and one pass through your machine. Certainly, I’m not the first with a flower tutorial like this one, but thought I’d share none-the-less since is a little bit different from the tutorial linked above. Here’s a quick step-by-step.

You’ll need: waxed paper, flower die (Tattered Flowers – Sizzix), brads, paper piercing mat, paper piercer and a die cut machine.

Tear a sheet of waxed paper to about 18-24 inches long. Fold it up into a rectangle that just about fits your die. Set die on top of folded stack of paper and pass through your die cutting machine.

Keeping same sized flowers together, poke hole through center.

Secure with a brad in the center.

Scrunch petals.

Flatten and shape. Done.

Have a great day! I’ll see you tomorrow with a fun surprise from one of my favorite companies – and it’s not kraft paper or white flowers. Ha!

  2. Love all the tutorials, love learning new things!!!




  4. I am definitely going to have to try those wax paper flowers. Who’d a thunk?

  5. What an adorable card. I love that you used those music notes. I made a flower very similar to this with tissue paper. I must try it with the waxed paper. Thanks for the inspiration.

  6. So cute! Love the flower and your coloring is great!

  7. I love the flowers… and also the way the hat is shaded on the card.

  8. What a great idea on how to make a neat flower. I may try this. I so want to get into using copic markers I’m so new to them… this is a great opportunity for me to learn first hand.

    Thanks so much for the chance. I’m a new follower

  12. Lori….LOVE that flower!! How creative you are!!

  13. Thanks for the flower tutorial. :o) I haven’t seen this one before and it is very pretty!

    Was reading down your blog and wanted to make a suggestion… get a singer sewing machine. I have yet to start sewing my cards, but I do sew, and a singer machine cannot be beat for ease of use. I can thread mine in about 10 seconds. It is SO easy! And if you are getting one exclusively for card making, you don’t need the auto-tension (which is a must for real sewing, but increases the price.) Amazon has one for $89 right now, free shipping no tax.

    Anyway, just a suggestion… IMHO, the problem is your machine. :o)

    hope it helps, Jennifer

  29. Buying a quality set of Poker chips isn’t cheap but if you’re buying a full set of chips (300, 500 or 1,000), the price typically includes
    an aluminum carrying case, one or two decks of cards, five dice, and
    sometimes a dealer button. In it, Bill had written, in language almost identical to that
    of Ebby’s, after Ebby had told Bill he got religion at the Mission, Bill wrote, ‘I’ve found religion.
    The purpose is that the guide has room for improvement.
