Polkadoodle Challenge 31 - Free Theme

And it is Friday again, so time for another Polkadoodle Challenge! This week will be lasting until 28 December at 12noon GMT as we appreciate that things get a little busy this time of year, so this is the last challenge of 2009!

Nikky has asked the Design Team to make anything they like but to use the new cd Back To Nature. For my sample I've made these circle flowers - the printed templates are on the cd and you simply click and print which sizes and colours you want! I also printed on the reverse as I don't like seeing white card!

I've used the largest size, the next one down and the one down from that too - there are smaller ones but I didn't use them. For the larger flowers I've inked the edges once I'd cut them out. The flowers are made by pulling in the centre and attaching 3d foam pads at regular intervals where the two sides will meet.

Wooden beads hold the flower in place on the sticks (yes they are BBQ skewers from Tesco!) and also between the flower heads. Silver crafting wire has been curled and pops out of the top of the bead.

I glued the beads and wire in place otherwise it was all a little too delicate! For those eagle-eyed of you, these were part of the tv show where Nikky launched the cd - I made them especially for the show!

Really easy and quick to make once all the elements are cut out and there are lots of other colours on the cd too.
Remember you have until Sunday 28 December 2009 at 12noon GMT to enter this challenge and good luck!!
