Look at this pretty thing!! This is the same technique as the photo tutorial on the Scallop Circle punch-scrunch flowers, only done with the Scallop Circle die for the Big Shot. I am SO glad I tried it out, because it is truly something astounding! Click here for the photo tutorial.
So I had this gorgeous paper flower the size of my fist and I wanted it to be the main adornment on a wedding gift bag, but it needed something else. I've been wanting to play with the new sheets of multi-purpose adhesive for the Big Shot from the Holiday Mini (starts tomorrow!) so I dug them out. But, what fabric to use? My flower was Rich Razzleberry and we don't carry fabric in the right color (yet).
So I decided to use the Rich Razzleberry satin ribbon and the brand spankin' new Tasteful Trims Bigz XL die, essentially turning the ribbon into a long, scalloped fabric sticker, which I then could put wherever I wanted on the bag or on a card. The Tasteful Trims die is nice and long, too, so this even fits on a 12x12 scrapbook page!
Mega closeup of the flower... honestly, I am so taken with this. It's SO pretty! and it literally takes about five minutes (minus drying time). I can't WAIT to show it to my Big Shot club ladies on Thursday night. If you would like to join us this month and see what Big Shot Club is all about, please give me a call at (920) 261-3962 or email me: [email protected] and I would love to have you come as a guest. You do not have to own or purchase the Big Shot to attend.
Very nice, I am going to go and make one right now!

Lyssa, I LOVE the flower and I especially love how you so cleverly used our new Tasteful Trim die with the ribbon! I have plenty of satin ribbon and I did buy those adhesive sheets, so as soon as my die comes (ordered yesterday)! Thanks for the inspiration! :-)
