Big, vibrant, bold, hot colors! Yum! Kiki Art has such beautiful rich colors in their papers. That's one of the things I like most about these papers. That, and the fact that Kiki Art will be in the Zutter booth at CHA in Chicago in a couple weeks! Yeah, what better to be crafting with my Zutter tools, then to do it with Kiki's papers! Kiki herself will be in the booth too, as well as some of her design team and some of our Zisters too! (Some are on both teams - so it's a perfect match!) This is what Kiki looks like here on the left - though she looks much cuter in person! LOL!
Anyhoo, a few weeks ago I made a bunch of these accordion folded flower thingies (using my trusty Scor-it-All), and decided that I needed some colorful ones - and boy oh boy, did they turn out super with Kiki's papers! Perfect for summer decor and brightening my scrap room, and my front living room. I attached little dowels to the flowers so I could stick them in flower pots. Franny used them as fans! The big chipboard hearts are from Kiki's heart-shaped chipboard album set.
Each flower takes two sheets of 12X12. Cut each one into 6X12 and accordion fold in 1" increments. Glue the ends together and curl into round shapes. Super easy - but oh so dang awesome. Don't the rainbow and varigated colors look awesome!?!?!
Try it...and see you at CHA!
