Flower Holder **Frosted Designs and Papercrafting Journey**

Frosted Designs has a wonderful new challenge up this week to use fussy cutting on your project.  I had the privileged to create a fun project that used fussy cutting.  I had this cardboard tube that I got in the mail with some free samples and I was using to hold my pencils, pens, scissors on my craft table.  So my tip to you is think how to reuse the items you get int he mail as fun little holders or containers that you can alter!!  Then I thought why not spruce it up a bit and make it look nice, not everything I do needs to be a layout or a card!!

My holder started out like

I added some of the beautiful Graphic 45 paper, distressed, used my punch on the cream border in the back, and also punched out a butterfly for a fun accent.  I inked everything, but I did want to keep it simple to so you could see the beautiful image I cut out.  I also made this wonderful project for a GDT spot I have with Papercrafting Journey with the challenge to use punches. 

Some fun uses of this holder could be for pencils, or for my flowers that are in long vines.  I thought it would be fun to showcase them this way so I could see them and make it look like I had a little mini flower arrangement on my scrap desk.

I hope i inspired you to go out and make a fun holder for your scrap table, and please don't forget about the wonderful challenges:
