American Crafts | Flower Stationary Set

It's Flowers week on the American Crafts Blog, and yesterday I shared a tutorial for a fun Stationary set.  You can put together a cute and functional stationary set, using several different techniques.  I created a set of four cards with envelopes, using a Dear Lizzy Stencil, some die cut flowers and fun enamel flowers!

1. Place the Serendipity stencil over one of the Die Cut Tags. Use a piece of scrap paper to mask off the tag about halfway up.

2. Use a sponge brush to dab white acrylic paint over the stencil and then carefully remove it to let the tag dry.

3. Cut strips of patterned paper to adhere across the center of the Die Cut Tag.

4. Place the strips in between the painted flower pattern and the bottom part of the tag. Cut off the excess edges.

5. Machine stitch across the patterned paper strip with black thread.


6. Cut 8 die cut flower shapes from patterned paper using your electronic die cut machine or use a flower punch.

7. Layer two of the flowers cut from different patterned papers on the backside of the Mini Cards and Envelopes.

8. Remove the metal brad piece from the Pink Brad flowers and adhere them to the center of the layered die cut flowers.
Voila! And you can complete your Stationary set by wrapping a pencil in Serendipity Ribbon and adding a die cut flower to the end of the pencil.
