Sassy "A"

I hope you are having a great Labor Day!!  Lori here from ScrappinMyStressAway with a Sassy A!  My kitchen has red walls and black appliances so I made this to display on top of my cupboards.

I started out with this wooden "A" from JoAnns.  I liked it because it is a little sassy.

I took this paper from Creative Memories because I liked the pattern.
I turned the paper and the "A" over and traced the letter on the paper.  I lined it up so the "A" would be covered in the floral (black) part of the paper.
Here is what it looks like cut out.  I used my ATG gun to adhere the paper to the letter.

I put some flowers from Mother's Day Bouquet on my mat.  I cut three out at 2.67w x 2.50h.
I cut out three of these at 2.04w x 1.94h.

I cut out three of these at 1.05w x 1h.

I cut out five of these at 1.05w x 1h.  I ended up not using them though.

Here is my Gypsy screen shot.

I cut the flowers out in red card stock.

I used black StazOn ink to ink the edges of my letter and flowers.

This is the fun part!  I crinkle the flowers and bend the tips up.

I use my Cricut Dental Tool to poke the flowers in the center.

I layered the flowers together and curled up the ends.

I used a black brad to secure the flower.

I used a couple of glue dots to secure the flower to my A.

Thanks for having me over to play Sheila!!!
