Convention Swap Tutorial

I posted my Convention swap picture way back but promised to blog the steps.

Here is the swap to remind you.  They hold a little Dove chocolate held in place with a Dimensional.

Cut a piece of card stock 15 cm x 4.3 cm.

Using the Simply Scored scoring tool, score the card stock at 2.6 cm and 6 cm from one end.

Flip the card stock around and do the same score lines from the other end.

Using the Blossom Punch, insert your card stock in to the punch from the bottom.  It's tricky to thread the card stock in the right place, so to make it easier, insert a piece of scrap paper into the punch from the 'normal' direction.

Remove the scrap paper and line up your card  stock so that the first score line is just touching a cutting 'prong' on each side.  Punch out to leave two petals on the end of your card stock.

Do the same to the other end.

Trim off the little pointy bit on either side of the two petals.

Cut a slit along one of the flower score lines to the midway point.  Do the same on the other end, but coming from the opposite direction/side of the card stock.  I have marked these lines in pen in the photo below.

At this point, you might like to put your piece of card through one of the Embossing Folders, depending on how you want to decorate it.

Fold score lines and overlap the slot in each end to link them into a four petal flower.

Decorate as desired.

And here is an embossed one.

I hope that gives you enough information to make your own.  Oh and don't forget the chocolate!

Thanks for stopping by!
