A Christmas Gift for You! {Tutorial}

A Christmas Gift from Me to You!

With Christmas just around the corner, I'd like to take a moment to thank all of our awesome readers!   I'd also like to give a little Christmas gift to all of my customers who have helped to make my paper flower tutorials so wildly successful. 

I've created this Elegant Holiday Bouquet  entirely out of paper and various Stampin' Up! punches and dies simply by putting together three of my previous flower tutorials:  the ever popular and original Paper Flower Bouquet,  the Candy Cane Bouquet, and the Jumbo Paper Pinecone Tutorial.  These tutorials are so versatile.  There are limitless ways to use the flowers shown in these step-by-step tutorials.

Any customer who has bought two or more of my tutorials (valued at $5.95 each or higher) this year  (I know there are a ton of you) is eligible to receive the Elegant Holiday Bouquet Tutorial entirely FREE!   All you have to do is fire me off an email before Dec16th, 2011.  Important:  Be sure to give the name and email address which was attached to the PayPal account you used to make the purchases. Please include which tutorials you have purchased.  That's it!  I will send it off to you within 72 hours.  It's just my of saying thank you and showing you how versatile those tutorials you bought are!

This bouquet is made completely out of paper and various Stampin' Up! punches and dies (well, that and a little floral wire, floral tape, and a couple of sticks :)) This detailed tutorial contains step-by-step instructions on how make each of these stunning flowers and how to replicate the bouquet.  The tutorial is in five parts.  Each tutorial gives clear  instructions with tons of gorgeous photos on how to make the white hydrangea, roses, rose buds, pine needles, large pinecones to make this bouquet plus step-by-step instructions on how to assemble and put it all together. The complete tutorial is 21 pages in length and has 59 photos.  The flowers are not difficult to make, but a lot of photos are required to give complete step-by-step instruction.   It also gives lots of instruction on how to create the subtle effects that really make everything look real and come to life. 

Once again, the complete 5 part tutorial is FREE if you've bought two or more tutorials from me in the last year valued at $5.95 each or higher.  All you have to do is email me by Dec 16th 2011, and I will send it to you *see note at end of post* (After this date, the tutorial will be available for purchase only) 

Been contemplating purchasing a couple of tutorials?  NOW is the PERFECT time -- you'll get this one completely free with your order.

Alternatively, you can purchase this tutorial as a stand alone tutorial for only $6.95.  

UPDATE:  (added June 1, 2012):  You are purchasing a tutorial from 2011.  Some of the items used in the tutorial have been discontinued from Stampin' Up!  This tutorial is still easily re-created.  Simple substitutions are noted here.  As of June 1, 2012, Stampin' Pastels, the 5-Petal Punch, and the Mat Pack are  no longer available for ordering through Stampin' Up!  The Stampin' Pastels can easily be substituted for other pastels, or with the corresponding classic ink sponged on with a cotton tipped applicator.  The 5-petal punch was used to create the tiny green leaves amongst the white hydrangea flowers.  This punch can easily be substituted for the Blossom Petals Builder punch or or the 5-petal shaped flower from the Island Floral die.  Any piece of thin foam can be substituted for the foam mat from the Mat Pack.  

As always, paid tutorials will be e-mailed to the email address registered to your PayPal account within 24 hours as Adobe PDF files following your purchase.  If you do not receive your email, please check your spam box.  If you still have not received your file within 24 hours, please contact me so I can correct any issues.  

*Free tutorials will be mailed within 72 hours.  I will be collecting emails requesting free tutorials and compiling mailing lists.  I know there will be a lot of you.  Please be patient.  Once again, please remember to include the name and email as well as which tutorials you purchased from your PayPal account.
