Teresa Collins Altered Box

I was thrilledwhen my altered Teresa Collins box was on HSN with Xyron and Beth Kingston back in January.  Here is a picture of the Teresa Collins Kit you can get on HSN or on Xyron website, click here. The pink box that all the goodies come in can be altered to create something as beautiful as this.  AMAZING!!!
The flowers and paper are of course from Heartfelt Creations...I just love the way this turned out.  I was able to use the liquid glue that come in the kit to gloss coat all of the flowers.  Of course the Creative Station made adhering my base paper a snap and I love the foam adhesive squares that come in the TC Kit also.  They are black so they really blend in and you can see them even if you are flipping the box around. 
Here is a detailed shot of the flowers and layering. 
I'd love to see your altered box...send me a picture and happy creating. 

Washi Tape Flowers Tutorial

Hello everyone, I'm excited to share a super simple tutorial with you today making washi tape/ printed tape flowers.  They are so easy...... here are the supplies you'll need to gather.

Step 1: Fold over the printed tape so both sides have the pattern.

Step 2: Cut strips into a pill shape, rounding off the ends. 
Step 3: Ink the edges front and back of each petal

Step Four: pinch the centers together with tweezers for a crisp pinch.

Step Five: Twist where you have the pinch, but be careful not to rip your tape.  The pinch in the center actually helps the tape not to rip.

Step Six: Using glue does layer your petals up to create a flower.

Step Seven: Finish off your flower with either a paper bloom or even a sparklet. 

Here’s a completed card that I used the latest collection “ Art of Life “ which blended beautifully with the printed tape flowers. 

KaiserCraft supplies used: P1405 Printed Tape, F666 Black Paper Blooms, F661 Mini Black Paper Blooms, P1407 Loved,  Foam Tape

Other Products Used: glue dots, ink, card stock, tweezers
