Having fun with July's Kit

When I opened my kit, I was immediately drawn to the surfboard paper--being a "beach family", I knew that I would definitely use this paper on all of my beach pics---but then I realized that the surfboards could be hand-cut to look like the petals of a flower--so I got my crafty little Fiskars knife out and started cutting away--and here is one example of a flower I made with the surfboards--I just added a bit of crystal lacquer to the "petals", arranged them in a flower shape, added a button and a brad from the kit, some "puffy paint", and I have a really cute flower to add to my layout--
I hope you like this technique and try it out for yourself!!

Happy Scrapping!!

Okay, that is SHEER GENIOUS! I never would have thought about making those surfboards into a flower, but I'm totally stealing the idea now!
