November Club Scrap Blog Hop - Fire & Ice

Welcome to the
Fire & Ice Blog Hop!

When I saw this months kit I was so inspired by the Asian influence,
I knew I wanted to create something that reflected this theme.

I have always loved origami and thought that I might find something that I could use with these papers.  Of course origami paper is usually very thin so I knew I was in for some work because the Club Scrap papers are so nice and heavy.  I lucked out because a few of the designs were on thinner glossy paper which make it much easier to work with.

I settled upon a Kusudama Flower Ball.
Representing both Fire and Ice!

Each flower consists of 5 individual petals and there are 12 flowers in all...
60 petals in all!

But I wanted a fun way to display it as well....
I stamped the "Love" image twice, once on the warmer section of the printed design and once on the icy area.  They were both matted with the red pattern paper from the kit and strung on the black cord.
The flower ball comes next then the sentiment about love below.

I tried to spin it so you could see multiple angles...

Here's the top portion....

and the stamped sentiment hanging below the ball...

I hope you've enjoyed this project and it inspires you to think outside of the Club Scrap box.
