The Scented pourri rocks with the paper.in a bottle for at least a year. This was not my intentions for them to sit so long. So, I will go for a shorted period of time, I am sure if you make your miniature flowers and let them sit for a week would be just as effective. Make your flowers and add scented rocks pourri ( from your local dollar store) Then lets sit as long as you would like. I made a lot and used some for other projects. This was the first project I actually got time to post.

 

 Make many and let them sit in a small container, use when needed.

Today , was the day to take them smell the aroma of the awesome scented paper miniature flowers. I made my first scented flowers and I could say,  there will be some more of this in the future. I think I will work with some other scents to create some unique paper. But, for now lets Show off the Easel, card  for this is the purpose I am writing the post.

 

First , lets get our paper supplies and cut and color our projects.

forgive me for not having the dimensions of paper. I was in a hurry for a gift card for a friend, and wanted to documents some of the process. In my original project I started with a rose. I was not pleased with the rose on the card yet I did like the results of the rose. As you can see in the photo it was not quite what I was looking for. So, I pulled out the scent flowers from a time in the past, when I was making a container’s full of miniature flowers.

So, you pull out your stamps, round corners snip, your glue sticks and stamp you projectI colored all my items and colored the edges of my easel frame to give it some antique look then the I stamped the swirls of the tree tops only. To make flourished stamped backing on the cardstock. next, I ended up swapping out the rose for the scented miniature flowers. I seem to have made a better choice doing this. That’s what I like about cards, we are not set in gold our choices and we can make what is pleasing to the eye of the author.

Here is a close up view of the rose. it was a master piece yet did feel right to have the butterflies fighting over one rose. So I had some prepped miniature flowers. and if I do say so myself I liked the better

Finally, after all the fuss what to do with the rose. I added the rose on the bed of scented flowers. This gave in some depth and really gave the rose a little more appeal then sitting alone. I hope you agree.Now, lets explain about the hole In the top. Since it is a scented card. you can hang the card. This is a nice aroma or place a bow. I could find my ribbon in the move yet. and I work hard just hooking back up my Robo-craft just to get this project started. I hate when you move. All things take time to get there place of comfort. Just so you know, I never really know how the projects going to look like until its complete. All I do is find a lot of things I like. grab all the colors I have that will relate to the paper or stamp I choose. Then watch the magic happen.
