Remember That Fabric Flower?

Hello friends,
Remember that fabric flower
Well I had a little more of that fabric and used it as a background to a pretty frame.
I then made a further flower using the Dahlia die and lighter patterned fabric.
Again, just by adding some fabric glue and a tiny bit of pinching to the flower middle you 
get that little bit of dimension. To finish I added a button to the middle and twine.
The little box frame is from Ikea.
I have an admission to make..I made this to submit to a magazine but I liked it so much 
I knew I couldn't part with it.  I've kept it!  
It is on my shelf with other bits and bobs that make me smile.
Remember with the Grand Calibur® you can certainly go beyond paper...
BIG day excited to share with you my project for the 
Take care,

Hi Christine, What a lovely idea I can see why you didn't want to part with it. I have had my Grand Calibur for only 15 months and it's broken, I have been so careful and only I have used it. To be honest £100 for just over a years use is not good, and I'm really not happy. Do you know if they can they be repaired???
Hugs Lesley
