It's Thursday and that means Sizzix blog hop and book giveaway day! If that doesn't brighten your day then these bloomin' good twinkle lights surely will! They are inspired by the book The Complete Photo Guide to Paper Crafts.
I decided to dress up some plain white lights with two of the die cut flower parts from the Sizzix Flower, Beauty Bloom die.
All I did was add another hole to the center with a standard hole punch and a little snip. I then simply slid the flowers onto the lights. I used different prints for each flower combo.
If you came here hopping through the blog hop (using the forward and back links in the top right side column or at the bottom of the post), then I bet you like working with paper, so you will definitely want to get yourself in the running to win a copy of The Complete Photo Guide to Paper Crafts.
