Design Team: Lyssa Zimmerman Week 6 Term 2

Lyssa's Party Corsage

The Design Team girls, have really stepped up to this weeks sponsors challenge, and turned in some amazing party details for a fubulous soiree! The theme was, party and the sponsors are Unity Stamps, and eCraft Diecutable Cardstock. Today, Lyssa turned in a project fit for blue bloods, so much so, we think Ms. Mary Crawley from the hit PBS show Downton Abbey would approve! And now, YOU can replicate!
Here is her how-to:

This week, our challenge was to use our sponsor and make something geared towards a party. It was open to anything. So I came up with these babies: Corsage Name Tags!

So these were very simple to assemble, believe it or not.

Using our sponsors, Unity Stamps & eCraft Diecutable Cardstock from The PaperMill Store I also used lace I had on hand along with a brown coffee filter.
I started with the coffee filter at the bottom. I wanted to made the circle smaller so I gathered some of the filter in the middle and secured it with a simple staple.
Next layer was lace that I hot glued in a circle straight onto the filter
I made flower by cutting out 2 - 2" strips of the cardstock then bent them back and forth. I attached the 2 strips on both ends to make a circle then smashed it so it would make a flower. Here's a great tutorial, on how to do this, so it's easier to understand.

Next I used the scalloped circle image from my Jen Allyson's SD card, and
I used my stamps from Unity stamps to make a flag and cut that out. I used some other abc stamps I had on hand to stamp my name. I stuck that below the scallop circle.

From the same image card, I cut out a cool vintage frame circle out of cardstock to go on top. I stamped a "5" from Unity Stamps right in the middle. Almost done! I hot glued 2 pieces of lace on the back of the corsage that now hang down.
I grabbed a safety pin and some scrap felt and hot glued it on the back
Aaaaaaaand, we're done. What do you guys think?

Personally, I would wear this to church as an embellishment to my sweater! Seriously! ( I would probably take my name off though...and the #...because people would think i'm weird having my name on
Perfect accent for any party, whether it's a birthday party or a wedding!
You guys falling for lace too?
