Memorable Seasons Blog Hop Challenge

Welcome to our first Memorable Season's Blog Hop challenge.
All you need to do is go to the blog from each DT member and find a challenge requirement. Once you have all 4 requirements, you can create a layout, post it in the gallery and link it up in the forums by the end of the month.





Just to inspire you, here is a card from DT member Alison posted earlier this week in our card exchange. I hope you are playing along with that as well.

Have fun!

Bottle Cap flowers

The Sweater Weather and A Perfect Autumn collections meld so perfectly that I've throughly enjoyed mixing and matching.
Stop by the store to get yours!!!
~ Grateful ~

My blog Scrappin' Chaos has a list of supplies used in this project.

The gorgeous flower on this card was made from scraps and household items.
You will need:
One 20oz coke bottle cap
One 1/2 inch button
One 7 inch piece of twine
Seven 2 inch circles punched from vellum
Five 2 inch circles punched from cardstock.
Pierce two holes in bottle cap using the instructions found in this post:
Step 1.Thread needle with twine and set aside.
Step 2. Place button in the center of first circle and pierce holes for the twine.
Step 2. Stack remaining circles and pierce 1/2 inch from the edge.
Step 4. Place first circle on paper piercer and then add remaining circles. Fan out the circles so that they complete a circle around the first circle.
Step 5. Hold circles firmly, remove paper piercer.
Step 6. Run needle and twine through bottle cap, circles, and button so that button will be inside the cap when the twine is pulled tight. Run twine back down through second button hole, circles, and bottle cap.
Step 7. Press button into bottle cap and tie tightly with two knots. Leave twine ends for attaching flower to project.
Step 8. Fold circles down around the bottle cap to resemble a flower.
Step 9. Attach to project by piercing corresponding holes in cardstock and tie twine ends. After attaching use a little hot glue to hold the bottle cap firmly to the page.

As you can see this tutorial was originally written for vellum. Patterned paper is much thicker and fewer circles will fit inside the bottle cap. The process is the same and yields a classy flower.

Scrap On!
