Bouquet Bigz Die Orchid Tutorial

As promised, here is my “tutorial” for making orchids from the Bouquet Bigz Die found in the Occasions catalog.  I was in a bit of a hurry when I was making these …so please forgive the the “neatness” factor of my photos!!! Smile My glue gun went a little wild!!  The end result is what counts…right??   So here goes….
Bouquet Bigz L Die by Stampin' Up!
Bouquet Bigz L Die137367
   Using the Bouquet Bigz Die, you will need to cut 5 of  the smooth edge petals in Whisper  White    2 large and 3 small.

Add a drop of hot glue
and connect split end to give dimension 
Do this to all five petals and cut a Melon Mambo flower center
Then starting with the 3 small petals, connect them together..(wild glue gun!!)
This is why I used hot glue....other adhesives pulled apart
Add the 2 larger petals as shown
(a little rough looking)
Sponge some crushed curry in the center....because it is not smooth, it doesn't look to "pretty" yet!
Fold the center into fourths
Add to orchid center and when it is done they look lovely!

Hawaii here we come!!!

until next time…..

Hawaii Grand Vacation Blog Hop

Whether you are just coming from Tami White's Blog or just arriving...Welcome !!  I am so excited to be participating in the Grand Vacation Achiever's Blog Hop!

Now here is my creation… of my favorite items from the Occasions Catalog is the Hello Life Project Kit.  I just got done with Stamp Camp this past weekend and all my ladies got to make this kit …but we all got a little creative and made it our own!!  I thought the perfect thing would be to make mine about my upcoming Hawaiian Grand Vacation.  So I used the Project Life Card Collection and Accessory Pack  Let’s Get Away…which is just perfect for this theme.  I  made  a few Orchids  from my Bouquet Bigz Die...all while  using the appropriate Hawaiian inspired colors, Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo throughout the project.  Now I am all set, when I come home, to pop my pictures and mementos in from my wonderful Stampin’ Up! vacation to Waikiki Beach!

Check Back on Sunday and I will have a quick photo tutorial on how to create these orchids.

Another favorite stamp set of mine  from the Occasions Catalog..Adventure Awaits.
