Mother’s Day Photo Flowers

by Amy Bowerman

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter holiday, now it’s on to the next one…Mother’s Day!  Today I’m sharing a Mother’s Day Photo Flower project using Craft Attitude.  This project is fun to create and makes a great Mother’s Day gift for kids to give to Mom, Grandma, or someone special.

If you are new here Paper Flowers are my most favorite thing to create.  My other favorite thing is my munchkins so why not combine the two into a beautiful, blooming Mother’s day project?

These Mother’s Day Photo Flowers are a gift for MY mom featuring photos of mine and my sister’s kids.  Instead of a bouquet that withers in a week I’m giving the gift that keeps on blooming.  By adding the sweet, smiling faces of her grandkids Mom is sure to love this unique Mother’s day bouquet!

How to Make Mother’s Day Photo Flowers with Craft Attitude

 

Craft Attitude is seriously awesome stuff!  You can use it on pretty much any surface to create fabulous image transfers with ease.  Just print, paste and peel…it’s that simple!

*I used Jewelry Attitude for this project but you can use any variety of Craft Attitude you find (they are all the same, just different packaging)  You can find more information about Craft Attitude HERE.

Supplies:

  • Craft Attitude
  • Glue Stick
  • Circle Punch
  • Idea-ology Mirrored Sheets
  • Scrap Book Paper
  • Sizzix Flower Dies (or Cut your own Flowers)
  • Favorite Inks (I used Wendy Vecchi Ranger Archival Ink)
  • Buttons
  • 24 Gauge Wire
  • Hot Glue

STEP 1:  Create a photo collage in PicMonkey.  I used “Square Deal” and resized to 640 X 640 px.

*Don’t have Picmonkey?  It’s a free photo editing service.  There is an upgraded version that I highly recommend…Picmonkey Royale with more fonts, filters and overlays.  You can try it out for free HERE.

STEP 2: Flip your image and print on Craft Attitude.

*TIP*  You will ALWAYS need to flip your images when working with Craft Attitude.

If you would like to use my “Children are the Flowers in God’s Garden” graphic you can find an un-watermarked printable version HERE.

STEP 3:  Cut out printed Craft Attitude images and adhere to Idea-ology mirrored sheets (or surface of choice) with a glue stick…image side down.  Smooth out air bubbles using craft scraper or bone folder and peel off backing.

*TIP* If any bubbles remain after backing is removed cover image with wax paper and smooth.

Using Mirrored sheets with Craft Attitude will create a cool holographic effect.  *I cut my mirrored sheets using Tim Holtz Alterations “Sized Circles” Sizzix Movers and Shapers..

 STEP 4:  Cut Flowers by Hand or use Sizzix Flower Dies.  I love to mix and match my Sizzix Flower dies to create unique blooms.

Flower Centers- Eileen Hull Heart Flower cut from Elizabeth Craft Designs “Shimmer Sheetz” and embossed with a variety of Sizzix Embossing Folders.

Flower Petals- Tim Holtz Jumbo Tattered Florals.

*TIP* To create a sturdier flower for hanging I covered Mat Board with Scrap book paper and wired petals to it.

Flower Stems- Eileen Hull Hydrangea and Borders Set.  Also cut from paper covered Mat Board.

Flower Leaves- Eileen Hull Leaves.  Cut from Sticky Back canvas mounted on Kraft Core.

STEP 5:  Ink Flower Petals with Wendy Vecchi Archival Ink or ink of choice.

STEP 6:  Thread 24 gauge wire through a large flat button.  Thread on each petal and secure with Hot Glue.

STEP 7:  Thread wire through  Mat Board Flower and trim excess.  Fold wire ends over to secure.  Cover wire ends with a button and hot glue.

STEP 8:  Adhere Craft Attitude Photo Centers using E6000 or other strong adhesive.

*TIP*  I add a drop of hot glue to speed up drying time.

 STEP 9:  Tie thin ribbon around Mat Board petals for hanging.

STEP 10:  Attach Craft Attitude Mirrored Sentiment with Jump rings.

Isn’t Craft Attitude Fun?  I love this stuff!  I have tried it on a multitude of surfaces and I must say I adore it on top of mirrored sheets!  These little cuties glint and smile in the sunlight.  Hope you enjoyed this fun Mother’s Day Photo Flower project!

These are absolutely adorable. I am learning so much from you all, and putting the Craft Attitude onto mirror paper is just another fun technique that sounds so interesting. Love the effect. TFS
