Great DIY Wedding Idea

Hi it's Pam today on the Craftwell Blog sharing with you a fun Silverware Holder idea using my Cut N' Boss, Craftwell Embossing Folders and Dies along with a die from Die-Namite.  Die-Namite is sponsoring the Craftwell Cut N' Boss Design Team this month on the Craftwell Blog. 

 I began by cutting two of the Folded Tag Dies out using my Cut N' Boss.  (You can get two Folded Tag pocket dies out of one sheet of paper).

 Once the Folded Tags are cut out, run back through the Cut N' Boss with the Motif Embossing Folder.

 Fold sides in and adhere on the side and bottom to form the pockets with your Mega Adhesive Runner.

 Cut a strip of burlap and place around. (I used the Xyron Creative Sticker MAX because I wanted to have adhesive on the whole piece of burlap.)

 Cut two of the Tim Holtz Tags out so you will have one for each of the Folded Tag.
 Run both through the Cut N' Boss using the Alpha Embossing Folder.

 Die cut six of the blue polka dot papers out to make two roses. (I cut two of the green polka dot ones out but did not use them)

 Cut one petal out of one of the flower shapes, two petals out of another and leave the third whole.

 Using a stylus, tweezers, and a soft mat...Roll and form flowers. So roll the one and two petal pieces you cut out using your tweezers, insert the one petal into the two petal you roll and glue at base.

 Like this...I used Glossy Accent to glue them together.

 Now roll the three and four petal pieces and repeat. Gluing the two petal into the three petal and the three petal into the four petal....For the last flower piece, cut toward the center, using stylus and tweezers bend and pinch to form flower and glue the prepared rose piece to the middle of full flower pieces.

 This is what it should look like when it is all pinched and glued together.
Tie a pretty ribbon around the burlap. Adhere the Folded Tag to the top of the Alpha Kraft Tag. Add  prepared rose when glue is dry to front of Folded Tag with Glossy Accent. Allow it to dry completely.

 Tie a some Aqua Twine around the burlap and tie a gold bow to hold the ring. 

 Cut two sets of the Pompom (DN-1086), one in gray one in pink from the Lawn Fawn Paper Pad. Cut the pink Pompom Buds off place on top of the gray Pompom. 

Here is a closer look at the Pompom Die along with how I tied the ring on with twine.

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial on how to make the beautiful roses and try making a few along with making some of the fun Silverware Holders for your next special event. 

Thanks for following my project today!
