Berry Blossom Flowers

  • Berry Blossoms fan fold flowers
  • Texas Tax Holiday, Aug 19-21 - save on glue, tape, and markers
I just can't stop playing with Berry Blossom Designer Series Paper.  Last week-end and throughout this week I cut up a storm using the Fun Flowers Bigz L Die and something new! ... The Simply Scored Scoring Tool and Stylus!!  Yes, A new  Scoring Tool...available Sept 1 in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini catalog.  I've made a few of these fan fold flowers over the years, but using the new scoring tool made them a breeze to make!!  I'm thrilled with this new tool, if you haven't already guessed by the number of photos below.

I simply selected three different designs from  the 12 X 12" Berry Blossoms Designer Series Paper, cut them into 1" - 1-1/2" and 2" strips, glued two 12" strips of the same design together, and fan-folded the paper every half inch on the score lines made with the new Simply Scored Scoring Tool.

Purchase any of these supplies from my shopping site, 24/7.

Here's a close up of these first three fan fold flowers.  I added Designer buttons and punched circles with various sized circle punches, or shapes from the Boho Blossoms punch to finish off the center of each of the fan fold flowers.  For a closer look, click the photo below.

I finished off the back of the flowers as well so that either side could be used.  These papers coordinate so well together!

Here's two more flowers using Berry Blossoms prints and coordinating In-Color card stock.  These flowers were cut using the Fun Flowers Bigz Die and the Big Shot Die Cut machine.  The center of the flowers  use the new Designer Printed Brads.  I love displaying these flowers in my craft room!  Click photo for larger image.

Texas Sales Tax Holiday:   If you live in Texas, this week end is sales tax holiday for school supplies up to $100.00 per items from August 19-21. Great time to stock up on SNAIL Adhesive and refills, and other Stampin' Up! glues and tapes, and to purchase any individual Stampin 'Write Markers you may be missing or the entire collection of Stampin' Write Markers or Watercolor Wonder Crayons! 

Because school supply items are included in this sales tax holiday, the list of items above will be state tax free during the holiday period.  Please note that you must place your order with me during the tax holiday period in order to receive these items tax free.  Also, keep in mind that this is a state tax holiday and may not apply to additional city,  jurisdictions, or county taxes.  This is a limited-time benefit.
