Sunflowers ~ with Cyndy G

Good morning, today I am sharing a project using files from My Scrap Chick.  I used the Sunflower 3D Rosette and leaves which can be found in the Sunflowers and Bumble Bees Bundle to make this project.  I found this cute little tin milk can on clearance at Hobby Lobby and immediately thought "This would be so cute with a sunflower in it."

I shrunk the size of the sunflower by about 45% since my can is only four inches tall.  I cut an image from Graphic 45 - French Country and glued it to the front and added a bow.  I think it is just adorable!

I don't know if you have ever used any of the rosettes from My Scrap Chick but they are Amazing!  Usually when I am making a rosette I am struggling to hold it together which I try to hot glue it and always burn my fingers.  The rosettes that My Scrap Chick makes have little thread holes at the bottom.  After you fold them and make your circle you thread string through the holes and gently tighten until your rosette is created, knot your string and you have a rosette.  No more burned fingers!  The only thing I would caution about is to make sure you don't use sewing thread, it would be too thin and would rip right through your holes.  I have found that twine works great.  Thank you for stopping by today.

Do what inspires you,
Cyndy G.
