Star-punch flowers

Hope everyone is well,
 I don't have a card to show as Mac has been at home poorly today.
She's been sick since the very early hours, bless her. She's slept on & off all day too - which is not like her at all.
She's really upset too as it's the school trip tomorrow & they're going to go Burghley garedn of surprise.
Which is like a secret water garden.
xXx
Anyway whilst she's sat on the sofa I did have a play with my new Stampin Up star punch and made some flowers- which I must say I'm quite happy with the result, they'll look better with some foliage though!

I have used 3-5 star shapes for the main flower then
the small centre is made from the bella bloom punch (think thats what its called)
I layered them up, misted them with water and scrunched them up.
xXx
Edited to say:
Paper is all from Stampin up as are the punches, the small centre flowers are all of one stampin up punch.
Thanks for looking - better get back to nursing!

Poor little daughter, why is there so much sickness about! Love the flowers Fleur, can I ask what kind of paper you used? The paper looks so thick.

Wow Fleur - these are fantastic.

I can't wait to see what you do with them.

Sorry to hear your daughter isn't well .. .. what a shame if she is going to miss the school trip.

Perhaps you can console her with the thought that at least she isn't going to have to write that essay about the outing. That always used to spoil school trips for me.

Love Jules xx

Fleur Hope Mac is feeling better today. A real shame she has had to miss the trip I know you were both looking forward to going. As Chris said maybe a trip will be order over the summer hols a group of crafty mums and their children!!! Those flowers are fab maybe popping round for a lesson or even a borrow of that punch!!! (just for a change...) You & Lou seem to be my points of call for anything crafty you should set up your own craft shop between you ???
See you soon Nicky xx

Hi Fleur, hope Mackenzie feeling better, Josh was sick on the way home on the bus! The flowers are gorgeous and you could sell packs of them, they are really effective.
