I've been dying to use my new rose dies; when we were invited to this wedding shower party, it was the perfect opportunity to give the dies a test run. I couldn't decide on the large size rose die or the one with two smaller ones so of course I got both of them (on Ben Franklin Crafts 40% off coupon day you can get one at a super price). Because the dies fit the large Pro machine, they are an investment but well worth the price. As you can see, the dies cut large flowers which are easily spiraled into roses to be used for a multitude of decorating projects. I used some leftover embossed white wrapping paper which give the roses some interesting texture. For the center of the flowers I glued in stamens from the Ben Franklin Crafts floral/wedding department, but you could leave the centers unadorned. The gold foiled leaves are from the Wilton cake decorating aisle and the tulle netting ribbon is also from the floral department. I only had enough of the wide satin ribbon to make a bow to match the Martha Stewart wrapping paper (hence the use of the tulle ribbon) but I think that it worked out alright and it made me happy to use up supplies which seemed destined for the odds n' ends pile. As you can see, it doesn't take much to dress up gift wrapping to make the presentation an exciting part of the giving. Show your crafty side and wrap it up pretty with help from Ben Franklin Crafts!
