Good Morning!!

P1030744 copy
So…I’ve been having fun in my craft room with my McGill Paper Blossoms Punches again!
One of the punches that the design team will be showcasing on the McGill Blog this month is the Geranium Punch. When I think of Geraniums, I think of window boxes and planters overflowing with gorgeous flowers. My patio has lots and lots of Geranium inspiration.Unfortunately, something is making a smorgasbord out of my geraniums at the moment.
For my flowers, I punched the petals with my Mini Petals Punch and sprayed them with Glimmer Mist to add depth.
The leaves were punched with the Small Geranium Punch and inked with Distress Inks. I added the individual leaves to the punched Pine Branches.
After shaping the flowers petals, I adhered them to 1” Styrofoam balls, cut in half.
The video for the Hydrangea Flower explains in detail, the basic steps for creating a Hydrangea Flower...which are pretty much the same as the Geranium Flower …and here is a PDF for the Geranium Flower.
