Sunflower Vase...

Today is my last project in the Sunflower series and I made this pretty vase with glittery flowers! I filled it with black rocks, dried flowers and scattered dainty butterflies amongst the stems. Read below for the quick tutorial for creating the easy flowers!! Once again, I used Cosmo Cricket's Glubers for my creation! Hop over to The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and purchase Glubers before Sharon runs out!!

Glubers are the foundation for creating perfect flowers! They are a great way to use up strips of fabric, ribbon or trim. Simply apply gathered fabric, ribbon or trim around and around the Gluber dot, starting in the middle. Add a gem or other embellishment for the flower center, peel off the back and apply to any paper craft project. Instructions are included on packaging for 2 different type of flowers. 

To create the glittered sunflower, simply cut the large flower in Jewel Flowers & Flourishes from a gluber with your Grand Calibur or die cutting machine. I used the 2 inch glubers for this project. Peel off the film from one side of the gluber and add gold glitter on the petals, avoiding the center (as shown above). Next, add brown glitter to the center of the gluber flower. Peel the film from the back side of the gluber and adhere the glittered sunflower to your project.

Project Recipe:
Embellishments: Glubers, Butterscotch/ivory 1.5 grosgrain Stripes Ribbon, Art Institute Gold and Brown Ultrafine Glitter, Beacon Adhesives, KaiserCraft Pearls
