Do you know what an Easter Egg is? We had one here last week. We kicked off a blog hop and you may have gotten a glimpse of an entire new collection. Oops! The problem was that we were a month early here on the blog, lol! The Creative Team and I had to unpublish our blog posts, but they will be republished again in the near future. If you look hard enough out in the internet you are bound to find remnants of some of our pretties but no fear, we’ll be back on November 11th with the hop. During that hop I published the names of the WCMD Blog Hop winners. Oops again! So I’m re-publishing them again here at the end of the post. In the meantime, today I’m sharing a look at Candlewick Rosebuds.
Cinch and Go Rosebuds
I’m not a flower maker normally but I want to be. I have found that Cinch and Go Flowers are the best and quickest way for me to do cheater flowers that looked I fussed but didn’t. Candlewick Rosebuds is made in the Cinch and Go tradition.
Short and sweet, I wet each of the petals, burnish with a large ball-tipped stylist by mashing the petal down in foam and allowing it to curl. I take either a corsage pin or a pearl threaded onto pliable wire and thread each of the petals on the wire – adding a drop of glue in between each layer to hold it in place. So, while that’s a quick description, you can see it in action: Introducing Cinch and Go Flowers on YouTube, and Cinch and Go Flowers Tutorial on YouTube.
For this card I simply assembled 6 of the rosebuds and twisted their wires (see video linked above) together to make a bundle. It was very easy to then spread them out and glue them down. Quick and easy, I promise!
