Rinea Roses for You

Hello crafty friends!!!

It's the first of the month (WOW, where has the time gone??) and that means I have a BRAND NEW Rinea creation to share with you!!!  First though, I'm excited to tell you that I'm remaining on the Rinea team for 2019-2020!  How exciting is that? I just love working with their products and can't wait to keep creating. Even more exciting is that in addition to blogging, I will be adding a video tutorial each month too! FUN stuff ahead!!!  Now onto my project.

I have been dying to make 3D Roses with my Rinea Foiled Paper forever....and I FINALLY picked myself up a brand new Cricut machine - so it was finally time!  The colors I chose for this project were Fuchsia/Gold Glossy Solid, Blush/Gold Glossy Solid and  Emerald/Emerald Starstruck Solid.

To make the roses, I used my Cricut machine and a rose svg cut file (sorry, I had it saved on my computer and I can't remember where it came from!!). I uploaded the svg file into Cricut Craft Room and set it up to cut! 


I loaded up a light tack mat with my Rinea Foiled Paper (one of my older mats that was NOT brand new!!!). If it's too tacky, you risk tearing the layers of the foiled paper apart! 

Once my roses were all cut, I used double sided tape to adhere all my layers and did 9 flowers in total. I shaped the petals as I went - that is the most awesome part of using Rinea Foiled Paper - it HOLDS it's shape!  Plus, once you have all the flowers built, you can still arrange and re-arrange the petals until you have it to your liking!\

To create the final project, take your frame (mine was from the dollar store and was an 8.5x11" frame) and remove the glass. I kept the mat background and added a piece of the Emerald/Emerald Starstruck Paper to peek through as my base. I reattached the frame backing and flipped it over, then hot-glued my flowers in place.  A good tip is to arrange the flowers how you want them first before gluing, then lift them up one by one as you glue them down. Then your spacing remains correct.

Fluff your petals to your liking once more and voila! Your beautiful 3D Frame is ready for gift giving!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you are inspired to make some frames of your own. They make a great Mother's Day Gift or Teacher's Gift!

See you again soon!
