Flower Punch Board

I've been eyeballing this tool for a couple months in the magazines and on a YouTube and AZ Scrapbooking in Green Valley, AZ finally got it in.  Of course, I got one to play with. (I did purchase it.)

It's called the Flower Punch Board made by We R Memory Keepers.  It comes with a rolling tool and "bone folder" of sorts and they do store in the pockets at the bottom of the board.  I proceeded to try it out yesterday.

These flowers are quite simple but I didn't try dimensional yet as I wanted to be sure I had the hang of it.  Well, piece of cake!  I'm just using some scraps here but the effect is cool. The centers on the flowers are made with punches.  I did not get the stem kit as I didn't see it at the store. I glued my flowers to a 2" circle to hold them together.  I do have some floral wire somewhere but haven't yet decided how I'm going to use these.

This is the "small" flower, 5" across.  The 2 pink ones are "extra extra small" and are 3" across.  I hope to make some more and try some other ideas.
