Flowers for You with Epiphany Crafts!!

How many of you give or receive flowers for Easter!

Often they don't come to us in the nicest or most fashionable of containers. Let's face it...it's the flower that is what we're truly looking at.

Designer Leslie Ashe received these beautiful flowers and thought the Epiphany Studio Tools would be the perfect way to dress up a slightly drab container. We have to admit...this is such a fun idea!

And Designer Jan Hennings has a bangle cuff bracelet that can be made to match your outfit, style and dress up your wrist like non other!!

Flower Container
Designer: Leslie Ashe

This was one of the most fun and super fast projects I've done!

Glue Arts supplies:
Extreme Tac Adhesive Squares (both regular & mini), Ribbon Adhesive.

Epiphany Crafts supplies:
Shape Studio Round 14 & 25 with bubble caps for each Shape Studio

Other supplies:
May Arts ribbon
Various papers from my stash 



Directions:
punch various circles using both sizes of EC's Shape Studio's Round tools

measure ribbon around planter & tie a bow
put glue dots around top of planter & ribbon adhesive on back of ribbon
(this is to make sure it sticks TIGHT just in case you're keeping your planter outside on your patio)

pull your ribbon up to the top of your planter & add flowers with EC's shape studio's round tools
set out and enjoy!




Bangle Cuff Bracelet
Designer: Jan Hennings

Supplies:
GlueArts Ribbon Adhesive, Hot Glue Gun
Epiphany Studio Tools
Crown Stamp
Lace, Ribbon, Felt

Instructions:
 Step 1-Stamp a small crown on a scrap piece of cardstock or cardboard.
Step 2- Center the stamped image in the Shape Studio. Place the protective cap in place, close lid and punch.
Step 3-Measure your wrist and cut 2 pieces of beige lace and 1 piece of 1" wide felt, 1.50" longer than your wrist measurement. Cut one piece of black felt, 2" longer than your wrist measurement. Set aside.
Step 4- Using canvas and Sizzix Alterations Flower Die, cut each flower once.
(If desired, stamp script on some of the flowers.)
Step 5- Sew the first piece of beige lace to the center of the felt.
Repeat this step for the second piece of beige lace, sewing it to the other side.
Step 6-Use Glue Arts, Ribbon Adhesive and run a strip down the center, between the pieces of beige lace. Apply the black lace to the center and turn the ends under. Apply Ribbon Adhesive to hold the ends securely.

Step 7- Layer the canvas flowers and using Glue Arts Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks, glue between layers.
Step 8- Select a regular button that is about the same size as the Bubble Botton.
Step 9- Hot glue the Bubble Button the the regular button.
Step 10- Join the ends of the Bangle Cuff and find the center on top. Hot glue the flower to the center.
Step 11- Use a small velcro square for a closure.

  7. This is a great project. I love it! To answer your question about flowers-Every year is a tradition for me to buy an Easter Lily this time of year and a Poinsettia at Christmas for my family. This year we've had a lot going on and I have forgotten to buy the Easter Lily. It's really left me kind of blue this year.
