Hello! Ginni Gass here and I'm SUPER excited to be returning to the Just Imagine/Kreaxions Design Team!!! Today I’m going to share something new – well at least for
ME anyway! While playing with my punches
and the Kreaxions Star Stencil the other day I wondered if I could make a flower. So I began to experiment and I really like
how it all turned out! Here’s the
instructions on how to make the flower and the “frames” that are on the page
To create the flower –
First take a thin piece of paper or vellum. (I used vellum for the instructions because
you can clearly see the lines I’ve created with each step.) Trace the Kreaxins Star Stencil on the reverse side
and cut it out.
Next select your punch and use Template A. (I used Kreaxions Punch #919.) Insert your punch as shown and punch each
point of the star.
Next cut away the outer piece so your piece looks something
Now fold your piece in half, turn it ½ turn and fold
That will give you something that looks like
this. Notice that you have a defined
center point from the fold.
Next carefully cut down leaving about ¼ inch from the fold
on each side of your punched area.
Now fold your “petals” towards the center to give them
Fold them back and then use a button, a brad,
some bling, anything to decorate your center.
I used the Kreaxions Circle Cutter set at 1” to cut a background for my
To create the “frames” on my photo, trace your star template
Next select your punch and do NOT use a template. Punch each point of the star. Now cut the pieces between the “rounded” part of the punched
area. (See picture below.)
That will give you two pieces that
look like the picture below.
And here's the final page with these elements! These pictures of my Granddaughter Molly were taken in Orlando at The Holy Land Experience.
The beauty of these techniques is that they will work for any type of
paper that you can punch and with any of the Kreaxions punches! I hope you’ll try these techniques yourself! If you do, please be sure to share on
Pinterest and/or Facebook! Happy
