Welcome back to this week’s product feature.

Pretty as a Daisy

Our girly, soft, and pristine Paper Daisies (item 119243) are adorable just the way they are, straight from the package. But pull out your mad science skills, submerge them like Easter eggs in water and ink, and voilà—you have richly colored dimensional accents that will add frills and fun to any card or project. Crumple them up and smooth them out for a distressed look; dip the petal ends in undiluted ink for a two-toned effect; experiment with Watercolor Wonder® Crayons or stack them in contrasting colors from largest to smallest and secure them with a brad for a little pop. Play to your heart’s content, and before long you’ll have your own garden of colorful daisies—perfect for summer papercrafting fun.
