I just love using diecut borders on my layouts! Every layout or card I make will always have a border - and the diecut borders in the Soulfood line by Melody Ross are just so perfect! I love each and every one of them!! I like to figure out different ways to use paper, and when I saw some of the borders, they reminded me of a technique that I saw of accordion folding strips of paper to make flowers! The borders are the perfect size and shape for this! Here's my layout with two "border" flowers.
And here's how I made them! I picked out the borders that were scalloped edged and folded them accordion style at each scallop
This is the trickiest part - carefully flip the edges of the scallops outwards - while still holding the flower together to form your flower. Here's a tip - have a small circle with a pop dot waiting for you to pop your flower on and voila! There's your flower!
I added a glitter candy dot from the Funhouse line for the center!! The possibilities are endless! Have fun creating!!
