I have seen designers create these cute flower accents but never actually made one myself. Here’s how I did it.

Kim Watson+Corner flower+#1

Snip off the sticky tab at the bottom of the photo corner.

It is quicker if you work in strips along the width of the sheet.

Start with the center four corners, and layer underneath each petal, building the flower as you go.

Once your flower is the size you require, prop up a pretty button with a 3D foam square for extra dimension.

Now let’s make the clear keepsake pocket.

Kim Watson+Keepsake pocket

Grab your desired size of Keepsake Envelopes. They come in a handy mixed size pack. Trim a journal card to fit inside. Slip the card in and pour a few pretty sequins or any small flat accessory on top of the card and seal shut with the self-sealing flap. Attach to a piece of patterned paper for extra stability using E-Z Dots® Permanent runner.

Now we can work on our creative base page. You been needing about four Adhesive sheets- 4×6″ to do this.

Step #1

Kim Watson+Adhesive Sheets+#1

Tile your adhesive sheets on your base paper. I positioned mine in the center.

Step #2

Kim Watson+Adhesive Sheet+#2Remove the protective backing and rub tissue paper on the sticky surface. Make sure to leave creases and wrinkles for added interest. Make sure to rub down properly before laying on the other patterned papers and accents.

Step #3

Kim Watson+Adhesive Sheet+#3

To make sure your chipboard alphas and accents will be completely secure on your page press them onto an Adhesive sheet before adding them to the page.

Lets finish the page.

Kim Watson+My Greatest Treasure+FP+cls#1Add some black stitching for punch, although the keepsake pocket steals the show.  :)
