Blossom Punch Paper Flowers & Video!!!!

Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  Ice Melts
Okay, I admit it, today's lesson may seem a bit obvious :)  But when you really begin to think about it, there is a deeper lesson awaiting us :)  We have had quite a bit of ice this winter - on the driveway and sidewalks.  Quite treacherous when you are trying to walk the dog!  Some of the ice at the end of our driveway had gotten to be about 6 inches thick and hard as a rock!  It felt impossible to break through it!  And then came the sun - little by little - day after day - and that ice that at one time felt impossible to remove - was all of a sudden a puddle of water.  What obstacles are you facing right now?  What seems impossible to resolve?  Maybe the ice has a lesson for us all - when it seems impossible and insurmountable, maybe if we just wait and shine some light on the situation day-after-day - our obstacle will dissolve and we will move forward without constraint.
I am loving my Blossom Punch!  For today's project I used the punch with waffle paper and designer series paper and then used the flower to decorate this little gift box.  Here is a video to show you how I created the flower.  (WARNING:  Watching this video may cause addiction to paper flower making!).  Enjoy!!!!
