Technique Blog Hop Yo-Yo Flowers



Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month there are 12 of us highlighting the Yo-Yo Flower" Technique as shown on page 27 in the Spring/Summer 2012 Idea Book!  

If you are coming from Erin's Blog, you are on the right track!  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique. If you get lost you can see the full list of blogs on Debi's BlogLet’s get started!

I first stamped some tickets from D1495 in Outdoor Denim Ink and Desert Sand Ink. I then trimmed the images and crinkle as desired, then added distressing ink. I stamped the flourdelee in Olive Ink and trimed. Then stamped the flourish in Outdoor Denim in lower left corner. Distress with Desert Sand Ink. Fold two long strips back and forth accordion style in even increments.
For smaller green fan flower I folded the accordion in half. Repeat for other part of the accordion. I glue dotted the middle folded area together on both. Then glue dotted each end. Using glue dots I adhered my accents.
For larger dark blue fan flower I glued one end then loop around and glue the other end together to create a ring. I pinched the middle of the ring together and using glue dots adhered to a circle base. Last I added the tickets

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto Michelle W's Blog where you will find some additional artwork highlighting this technique!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my project and happy hopping!

  7. Thanks everyone. You gotta make sure your strips are the same size when you cut them and fold them but otherwise it is way easier! ~Happy Scrappin'
