Tim's Tags Day 9 -- More Flowers!

Day 9 finds me faced with another flower I didn't have the die to make -- only this one was a lot easier to create and turned out much more successfully.   I just cut the paper on my own as Tim showed in his video and -- voila -- this time it turned out proportionately!.
Time and inspiration kept me from yesterday's tag, so I was glad to see this one this morning was on the easy side.  It forced me to cut into my Seasonal Paper pad (which I'm not fond of doing) for the background and flower, but seeing as this is one of my favorite tags I guess it was worth it.

Best tip from Tim today:  Tim's video on how to make a rosette was very helpful and can be created without his die, too.

This just goes to show that you don't need that fancy expensive die to make a perfect rosette flower. Great job, Louise!

This tag is simply adorable Louise! From the beautifully created rosette, to the cherub, and the snaps at the bottom...a beautiful tag!

Hugs,
Robin

Beautiful tag! This one is definitely more my style than the past few. I need to get caught up!

How did you make your rosette without the die? Did you just score every 1/4 inch? It's gorgeous!

This is lovely! I think many of us are without the die, me included but it is great to be able to make one without it! This is one of my favourites too. x

Just beautiful, Louise! You made it without the die? Maybe I'll have to try that.... just haven't been interested in his tags so much this year.
