Punched paper lily

Pin It
Oh WOW ! is all i can say........... a huge thank you to Sharri for allowing me to do a video tutorial on how to make her beautiful punched Lily flowers. Here is the link to her blog, its called papercrafts love affair please pop over and leave a comment on these they are stunning! the scrapbook box is also a great idea too and you'll find all the dimensions for that also! well i hope i have done your design justice Sharri, i popped in a few of my own tips I found helpful in making this too :) ....on a family note....we Will be heading down to Avondale Uni open day for our son as he decides what he will do after he leaves school next year and we'll also get to see our daughter Beth at the same time...can't wait. She has battled with homesickness pretty bad and we stay in contact quite a bit! Our prayers go with her each day and I know God has a place for her to learn new things and love her new life. She will be home soon to do her first in school prac at the local Adventist primary school here in Macksville which she is very excited about and then has 4 weeks at home after that. You know i never thought it would be so hard to watch your kids go and make their own way in this world ....its all been a real learning curve for us all! God is good though and i see His blessings each day which I am always grateful for. ok so here are a few more pics then the video...enjoy and thanks again Sharri for sharing your talents with me and the world! blessing to you today Xx

and a last thought

Let your patience show itself
perfectly in what you do.
James 1:4



Blessings to you

Thank you so much for a great tutorial and thanks to Shari for a wonderful project.

Just a hint from me now - leave the pin in the bottle of Crystal Effects. It seals the opening from air and is always reading to go when you next want to use it.

Awesome instructions thank you so much! QUESTION! How did you make the long levels on the top of the box under the lillies...they are beautiful also!

Thank you so much for this excellent tutorial, you instruction are very clear and easy to understand.

Valita this is stunning, I found sharis blog when she first made this and made the box part but only recently did the lillies...your way of doing the stamens is definately easier! I used the wrong coloured ink on mine so I want to have another attempt...just had a look around your blog, you are amazing!

Thanks for the wonderful video. You make it look so easy! I am just checking that you used the large oval not the wide oval? My petals look so little!

Hi Valita - just another follow up comment on your stunning Lillies. I made some following your fabulous tutorial and wore them on my apron for my Stampin' Up! summer garden party. Everyone loved them and my upline has now asked me to demo them at her quarterly training. I will be crediting both you and Sharri and giving links to both your wonderful blogs. Thanks SO much for the inspiration. As I am in the UK, this is a real around the world project :) X
