Think Spring - Altered Music Box

I've had this Prima Music Box in my alterable "stash" for quite some time, and thought it would look pretty all decked out in some wonderful Flowers using stamps from Heartfelt Creations.  A few weeks ago when I picked up some Roly Rosies by Imaginisce, I also picked up the Petal Roller.  I just *love* this little tool!  The long end of the tool has a slit, so you just insert your paper (think back to the days of paper quilling), and roll.  Now petals are all nicely rolled in no time!

I used Red Line Tape to adhere the beautiful Memory Box papers and Grosgrain Ribbon to the Music Box, created my flowers using Heartfelt Creations Posy Patch Flowers, Elegant Single Leaves and Aztec Gold Sunflowers 2 and coordinating dies. I added some Zva Creative Pearls under the flowers and some Rock Candy Stickles to my flowers.

Here's a photo of the flowers I stamped and die cut (Pink not shown)


Rose Flower

Banana Flower (cut same for Pink)
Create Flowers as follows:


Rose color:
Stamp middle Sunflower image in Black on Rose card stock, stamp Posy (size 3, 4, 5, 6) on Rose; cut Posy and Sunflower with coordinating dies. Curl edges with Petal Roller, layer on top of each other, with the Sunflower as your base.

Banana and Pink color:
Stamp smallest Sunflower image in Black on Banana/Pink card stock, stamp Posy (size 3,4,5) on Banana/Pink card stock; cut Posy and Sunflower with coordinating dies. Curl edges with Petal Roller, layer on top of each other, with the Sunflower as your base.

Leaves:
Stamp 3rd smallest leaf twice from HCPC 3314 Elegant Single Leaves PreCut Set on Celery, cut with coordinating HCD 704 Perfect Petals Die.  Stamp 2nd smallest leaf four times on Celery, then die cut; curl edges with Petal Roller, set aside.


All Rolled ready for leaves/stickles and pearl center
