5 Projects Using... Simply Creative Floral Notes


Here are 5 projects using the Simply Creative 'Floral Notes' papers from Trimcraft. There are instructions on how to make them below each picture.



  1. Die cut several butterflies from different papers.
  2. Take a 6x6" sheet of paper and flip it over, drawing diagonal to diagonal to find the middle. Pierce at this point.
  3. Die cut a small circle from patterned paper and pierce the centre of this too. Connect the holes and secure with tack.
  4. Arrange the butterflies around the circle and stick down with glue. Remove the circle, it's just a guide to help you get the butterflies in a perfect circle.
  5. Stitch around the circle.
  6. Stick to a 6x6" card blank.



  1. Take a sheet of 6x6" floral frame print paper. Cut a square of co-ordinating paper just smaller then the inside of the 'frame'. Distress the edges.
  2. Stick a small doily towards the bottom of the smaller piece and trim off the excess.
  3. Stick this piece to the 6x6" piece.
  4. Cut pennants from patterned paper and arrange like bunting across the top of the card. Add twine to the top. Add a button to each pennant.
  5. Add a die cut bicycle, gems and a sentiment. Stick to a 6x6" card blank.


  1. Cut the centre out of a 12x12" floral frame patterned paper.
  2. Stick the frame onto patterned paper using 3D foam to add dimension.
  3. Print your photo at 4x6" and mount onto patterned paper.
  4. Cut three more pieces from patterned paper at 4x6" and arrange on the layout, distress the edges and stick down.
  5. Add embellishments and a title.


  1. Take an A4 sheet of white cardstock and trim a little from the side.
  2. Paint grey watercolour onto plastic packaging and smoosh onto the piece.
  3. Stamp floral designs in black ink. Once dry, colour with a little watercolour.
  4. Cut a piece of patterned paper to A4 size and stick the stamped piece onto it.
  5. Add a length of washi tape along each side. 
  6. Add a 3x4" photo, and mount with patterned paper and vellum.


  1. Cut a diagonal down a piece of 12x12" patterned paper. Use a border punch to create a scalloped edge. Stick to a piece of 12x12" patterned paper.
  2. Add a length of ribbon down the diagonal.
  3. Print your photo at 4x4" and mount. Stick to the page.
  4. Using a circle punch or die, cut small circles from various papers. Cut some from vellum too and stick the vellum pieces under the paper ones.
