Flower Punch Board Canvas

Hello, We R friends! Tessa Buys here, and today I’m sharing a fun altered canvas made with the Flower Punch Board:

I started by covering an 8×10 canvas with gesso. I then applied some Heidi Swapp gold flakes to the edges of the canvas.

Like myself, you may have seen a similar project making the rounds on Facebook or Pinterest lately. I thought using silk flowers and a canvas to make a 3-d art project was a really fun idea, but being a paper crafter I just had to add some paper to it! The Flower Punch Board was perfect for punching, scoring and folding some pretty vellum flowers.

To make the flowers even more special, I painted the petals of the top layer of each flower with Minc reactive paint. I allowed the paint to dry for several minutes, then ran the flower petal strips through my Minc machine with gold foil. So pretty!

I drew a vase and stamped a sentiment, then used a craft knife to slice open the canvas at the top of the vase. I tucked my silk flowers in, then arranged my foiled vellum flowers until I was happy with the design. Last, I used my hot glue gun to secure everything in place.

I’m so glad that I had the Flower Punch board on hand to make my paper flowers. Cutting out and assembling each petal would have taken a long time, but the punch board made quick work of that process. And now I have a fun, quirky art piece in no time. Why don’t you live life in full bloom and give this project a go? Happy creating!
