One of my new favorite things!

The new Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog has so many great products, but I think one of my new favorites is the Spiral Flower Originals Die.  I have been working on making cake centerpieces for my soon to be daughter-in-laws bridal shower and having this new Big Shot Die has made making the flowers to embellish the cake so much easier. .

Spiral Flower Original Die #129379









     
Here is a video by Stampin' Up! that shows you how easy it is to use, and how pretty the flowers are.  Just think of all of the great uses for this fun product.


 


You can see this and all of the new products in the Occasions Catalog by going to my online store or click the catalog in the  left hand column of my blog.

Here is a picture of one of the cake slices.  I am still working on changing some things.  I might embellish my paper or change the colors around,  but I wanted to show you how they look on top. 


I'm not sure if I want to add one or two flowers, and what color if I only add one, but here is a sample for you to see how pretty the flowers are.



And, another project I made with the flower was the headband below.  

A Rich Razzleberry Button, placed on with a glue gun, added a pop of color to the inside.


You can cut the flowers with many different materials.  So far I have cut them using card stock, designer paper, felt, and fabric.  They all cut out and rolled together really easily. 

If you want your flower to spread out a bit more don't roll it up as tight.  I think I might try that for the next flower I made for the cake and see what I like best.
