Newsprint Flowers by Becky

Welcome back! We have a Tuesday Tutorial by Becky Williams, SRM Designer. She used SRM Stickers, cardstock, and her punches to create her own custom flower embellishments;

1. Choose your favorite SRM stickers. These can be all black ink or you can mix it up by adding in some of the more colorful sayings. I used "Happy Birthday".

2. Adhere stickers to cardstock or patterned paper.

3. Punch out with your favorite shape punches or die cut.

Tip: Make sure that your punches are nice and sharp because the stickers can be a bit tricky to cut through. You can sharpen your punches by cutting through a piece of aluminum foil a few times.

4. Ink the edges or add doodling as desired and then use as embellishments for your scrapbook pages or cards. You can layer with chipboard, buttons, etc. or use as-is.

With all of the SRM stickers available the possibilities are endless! Some others that you could try would be: I love you, Congratulations, Thinking of you. Enjoy!


I have a bonus project for you today as well...a wonderful altered shelf display by Helen;

Helen says: "I cannot believe how lush these stickers go onto wood aswell! I've used them on the outer edges, on the patterned paper inserts and to decorate the sides of the 'walls' (bottom row, middle box), oh, and finished off with a tag."


Last but not least, we have a winner from last weekend's giveaway;

Tanya Tahir
