MAMBI CHA Goodness

I had another great opportunity to do some work for Me And My Big Ideas again this year. Just love all the yummy papers and stickers they have...and there are soooo many to choose from. Today I am sharing some fun flowers tealight holders I made with the MAMBI shimmer papers from the MAMBI Sheets Specialty Paper Pad Tropical.

Metal candle sticks that I spraypainted blue...I am so in love with this color lately.
Remember my cabinets in my studio....painted them pretty much the same color.
I cut the flower petals on my Cricut using the Big Blossoms carttirdge.  Because MAMBI paper is not two sided I cut them twice and glued each petal together.  Then I formed the flowers.
You can see the double sided papers here.  The little tealights fit in just perfect.  I cut the petals at 2.5 inches just in case you want to give it a try.
This photos is my favorite for sure.  I love it so much, thinking I am going to have it printed really large at Staples or something and frame it.

I will have some more to show tomorrow so make sure to stop by.  Hope you all enjoy your day.  Snow day here in MA so we are all still in our jammies.

  1. These are adorable MF! Do you have templates for the leaves at all?

    1. Hey Shell, I cut them from a Cricut cartridge that I have. Big blossoms is the name of it. But, you know what I could probably make a template for you. Let me see what I can work up.

  2. I love them. The paper you used are beautiful. LOL! But the look so beautiful that I would probably just hoard them. I don't have a Cricut but I think I may be able to come up with something similar with my cutting machine software.

    Good to see you back blogging. I was beginning to think that you had fallen off the face of the earth.

    Oh, you can keep your snow...even if it is a snow day. I hope it doesn't slow down something that I'm waiting for UPS to bring me.

    Look forward to seeing what else you create. Take care!

    1. Hey are you? Hope things are well. Thanks so much for stopping by. Would love to see what you come up with if you make some flowers.
