This gorgeous project will really draw everyone’s attention! What a wonderful way of introducing some colour and craftiness in to your home.
Alternatively you could Die cut one of the larger Nesting Bloom dies on to a card blank, ensuring to not die cut the folded edge. Then you can embellish your card with a smaller Nesting Bloom die cut and other wonderful Painted Blooms products.
Maxine has also created an adorable pin cushion by die cutting the Nesting Bloom Dies on to Dovecraft Felt. She has then done a blanket stitch along the edge of her die cuts to connect them and added a smaller die cut to adorn the top. Once filled, this little cushion will sit beautiful on your craft desk (It’s SO cute!)
