I made this little paper flower bouquet to send to my MIL in Florida. It will pack easily, won't be a bunch of money to send, and will last for a long time. She is wonderful to us, and she always brags about my papercrafts! Awww!Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge #159 - Use colors Real Red, Summer Starfruit, Bashful Blue, and Basic Black.
The mini milk carton is also stamped with En Francais in black, and a bunch of paper flowers are formed with the Boho Blossoms punch and 2-3/8" scallop circle punch. They're hot glued to unfolded paper clips, and floral tape is wrapped around the base of the flower and the metal stems. A little more decorating with the Elegant Butterfly punch and Summer Starfruit stitched satin ribbon, and it's ready to ship!
What do you think of the color combo? It's another grouping of colors that I would never, ever have chosen on my own, but I think its fabulous! LOVE the challenges for breaking out of my bubble. Won't you join in? Click the pic below...The Paper Players challenge for my project theme, too. Give them a visit, their design team samples are just beautiful!
