Look at packaging in a different way

I used the chipboard backer the Prima Flowers came on for this project.

Card front using recycled material.

Use the Prima flower backer. Cut one end off. Distress the edges. Add glitter around the scroll work. Punch small holes in the other side. Run the ribbon around the back and loop into small knots on each end. Add two flowers onto the knot on the left side. Run the pin through them and top off with a crystal. For the stamped card, swirl a couple colors of distress ink on to your work mat. Take ATC size paper and dip it into the swirled distress ink. Stamp the round image with versamark and emboss with clear. Stamp the floral image with Momento ink. Add stickles to the stamped flowers. Take the edge punch and punch a long strip of pink about 12" long. Gather like a pleat. Sew the ATC onto a piece of pink cut slightly larger. Add the pleated paper to the right side. Add a couple gems. Glue that whole piece to the background. To finish it off, add glitter to the left side of the pink paper.
