Let's Sale-A-Brate Camp Wannastamp Card

Try making this flower! It's lots of fun!
Start out with an 8-1/2 X 1 piece of Designer Paper! This is the Delicate Dots Sale-A-Bration Designer Paper. Score it at every 1/4".
If you place your fingernail right at the first score line and push the Designer Paper forward, it will automatically start an accordion fold for you. Just move along the strip, placing your fingernail at the next score line and pushing the Designer Paper forward. You'll end up with a strip that looks like this!
Place a piece of Sticky Strip right at the end and attach it to the other end, continuing on with the accordion fold pattern.
It should look like this after adhering the ends together.
Fold the paper inward, forcing it into a flower shape. Once the pleats are exactly the way you want them to look, place a Pop-Up Glue Dot right in the center to keep the pleats where you want them!
Place five or six Mini Glue Dots on the larger piece of Designer Paper and center your flower on the Designer Paper piece. I like to use my Paper Snips to place the glue dots right where I want them.
Once you center the flower, use your Paper Snips to press down in between each pleat to make sure it sticks to the Mini Glue Dots underneath!
This is one of the cards we made at the Let's Sale-A-Brate Camp Wannastamp! It's taken directly from our Sale-A-Bration brochure! It was the project from hell - there's always one of those at each camp! It's so darn cute, though, you just have to try it. Once you get the hang of it, you'll love it!
