Kylie's Demonstrator Blog Hob February 2020



Hello!

Thanks for joining me today!  I am a participating in a wonderful blog hop through Kylie Bertucci’s Demonstrator training program.  So please make sure to visit the other blogs listed later in my post.  

I have the opportunity to participate in a vendor market in March.  I wanted to make something a little different for this market but was stumped as what to make.  Then I saw a post on Facebook in a group dedicated to Stampin’ UP!® demonstrators and it had the perfect project.  It was a bouquet of tulips created with the Tulip Builder Punch and pencils made by Michele Jutrisa!  I want to thank her for her inspiration and wonderful idea.  



I began by cutting strips of the card stock in 1 1/2in. strips and then scored them down the middle.  I punched them with the Tulip Builder Punch so the score line goes down the center of the tulip.  That made it easier to fold the tulips in half for gluing. 


I folded 420 of these tulips...holy moly! It was totally worth it.



 I had piles of tulips to glue together.I seriously thought it would never end but it did, hahaha!  Isn’t that always the way when we start a project that we know is a long one?  It feels never ending and then it’s done!  
I have now made 70 of these pencils for the market in March. It took me almost two days!


Here is the final product…well, 1/3 of them anyway. 


What do you think?  I absolutely love them and want to thank Michele Jutrisa again for her inspiration!  

I appreciate you being a part of my Stampin' Journey!

I live & love to inspire you!

THANK YOU!
