Flowers are perfect for any occasion, right?  Why not use your favorite papers and fabric with a variety of Therm O Web products to create something extra special that will last forever.

We begin with the paper flower.  To create these you will need wood skewers, your favorite papers, paint, circle die and Therm O Web (3d Zots, Memory Tape Runner XL, ICraft Dots and SuperTape,).

Begin by painting the skewers for the stems, I chose green to match the paper leaves cardstock.  Next die cut several large and medium circles from paper.  Wrap one ICraft Dot around the top of the skewer.  Add tape runner adhesive to one large circle (sides only) and wrap around skewer, over adhesive dot.  C

Continue to add layers, alternating sizes of circles.  Between circle layers add one 3D Zot to the center of the circle to allow space between layers/petals.


Hand cut leaves by folding paper in half and cutting leaf shape.  Create a few for a bouquet.  Maybe fabric flowers are what you are looking to create.

Using the same skewers, a bouquet holder (found in your local craft shop) and a variety of fabrics/ribbons/lace trims you can get something like this…


Used Peel N Stick fabric tape and Zots to assemble this shabby chic wedding bouquet.


Whatever your choice, it will be beautiful just because you made it yourself!

1 2013 Winter Votive Vase 1

Winter Votive Vases by Patti Milazzo

I embellished an inexpensive glass vase and votive candle holder with Therm O Web’s Supertape, iCraft Adhesive Sheets and Glitter Dust to add glitter and sparkle to this wintry wedding décor.
Therm O Web Supplies:

Therm O Web Supertape 1/8”
Therm O Web Zots – Bling
Therm O Web Zots – Small
Therm O Web Zots – Medium
Therm O Web Zots – 3D
Therm O Web Glitter Dust – Silver and Iridescent
Therm O Web iCraft Adhesive Sheet

Other Supplies:
Sizzix Snowflake Die
Glass vase and glass votive candle holder (craft store – less than $2 for both)
Doodlebug Design Sugar Coated Metallic Aluminum Glitter (loose glitter)
Iridescent Fine Glitter by Creative Beginnings
Gems, ribbon and tag or accent to embellish
Artificial decorative snow (craft or home improvement store)


  1. Lightly spray the glass vase and votive with Silver Glitter Dust and let dry.
  2. To add iridescent sparkle to the snow, place fake decorative snow in a discarded cardboard box (shirt box) and lightly spray, then fluff with a plastic fork and let dry.
  3. In the meantime, apply 1/8” Supertape around top or top edge of glass containers.  If applying around a circular shape, as shown with the votive, press, reposition and smooth out the tape as needed.  Don’t worry about minor imperfections or bumps as they will not show once the glitter is applied.

  1. Remove the tape and apply loose glitter.  Sprinkle on or apply and press with a dry paint brush.  Use your finger to smooth it over and then use the paint brush to lightly brush away any excess.
  2. Next, diecut (or punch) snowflakes from iCraft Adhesive Sheets.  Carefully peel away the backing and apply to side of vase.  3 snowflakes were applied to this vase.  Press firmly to ensure that the adhesive is secure, then remove the top protective layer and apply loose glitter.

  1. Add snow to the vase and insert votive holder and candle.
  2. Tie a ribbon around the neck of the vase, use a Small and Medium Zots to secure it hold the ribbon in place.  Tie a separate bow and again use a Zot to adhere it to the ribbon.  Trim tails as needed.

  1. Use Bling Zots to adhere gems inside snowflakes
  2. Create a tag from embossed cardstock.  Punch larger heart from light pink cardstock and apply to tag with 3D Zot.  Add letter stickers below – “I Do”
