glorious flowers

my favorite summer flowers are dahlias. i love their layers of petals and bright colors. and with July 4th coming, i was inspired to create some special dahlias of my own.

authentique is having a cross-promotional this week with want2scrap so i used papers from Authentique's "Glory" collection to make oversized flowers - i accordian-folded strips of paper, attached them together and formed them into circles. Want2Scrap's "Nestaboards" and matching "Nestabling" came together to create the flowers' centers. next i covered the "Nestaboards" with more pieces from "Glory",  sanded the edges and embellished with the bling!

stay tuned as things heat up for CHA-Summer. i am busily creating and building projects for authentique and will be highlighting them throughout CHA!


  1. What a fun and festive project, thank you for sharing and joining W2S in a great blog hop, love your project.

  2. Great project. I like how you use the Nestaboard and bling for the flower centers.
