Oh boy! Have I been having some fun with FUN FOAM! Who would have thought this spongy stuff would lead to the white flowers I am currently IN LOVE with? I am over the moon to have discovered how to turn fun foam into perfectly sweet flowers! Thank you Papertrey Ink for challenging us to go outside the fun foam box this week!! Check out the awesome fun foam creations going on at the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday challenge for more fun fun foam ideas! Also visit the pretty creations at the CR84FN17 challenge for a pretty color combo challenge.
OK, here's where I went with fun foam and light pink, bright pink and chartreuse...
Don't those fun foam flowers just pop? I was able to use the Papertrey Ink Beautiful Blooms II #3 flower dies to cut fun foam like buttah! I also used fun foam for the pretty Spellbinders fancy tag 2 that I used as a backer for the top of my tag. Fun foam cuts wonderfully and has a great texture to it, is flexible AND when you carefully add a little heat to it via heat gun....you get THIS!
Kinda like shrinky dinks but the fun foam remains flexible even after heating. This spells POTENTIAL to me! How about you????
I also had fun integrating some of my latest supply obsessions....fabric and sewing oriented items!
Fabric + Paper = Happiness!
I am so giddy with my discovery that I would love to SHARE some! Please leave a comment to be entered in a random drawing to win a DOZEN FUN FOAM FLOWERS handcrafted by me for you! If you are one of my sweet followers, please leave a second comment for another chance at these little sweeties.
