I love these flourishes – they are so versatile but one word of warning – they are delicate too, so take care when you are taking them off the packaging. I have been a little over-enthusiastic in the past and snapped them but you can always just glue them and use them on a card 🙂
I thought the chipboard pieces from this collection were really fun – so I decided to use them as tabs for my box.
I gave the pieces of the box a light sanding followed by a coat of paint. Usually I give 3 coats of paint for a matt finish but this time I wanted a slightly worn look so I painted once and then sanded the paint to expose some of the raw wood underneath.
These recipe cards which form part of the collection are GORGEOUS! I scanned one on my computer so I could figure out an easy template to print my recipes onto them. I chose a simple font (Courier) and I am really pleased how these turned out.
Here is a close-up of one of the cards – along with a pic of the finished frittata…
I have heaps of more projects using this collection – so stay tuned to the blog for some more ideas!
