Happy first day of spring!
What beautiful weather we are finally having. It’s Texas. It’ll be short-lived!
To celebrate, I made some flowers. Not just any flowers, but some really cool ones using the nifty Heartfelt Banner Kit I got free from Sale-a-Bration. Take a look at these little beauties –
Saweet, huh? My Texas typing drawel!
I was inspired by some flowers I pinned a while ago. I decided I had to try these myself.
I started by punching several flowers from the Blossom Punch and the Fancy Flower Punch. As I watched t.v., I crumpled and scrunched the flowers. I strategically pulled them apart to make two pieces. The inside makes a suede leather like texture. Perfect for these fun felted balls.
I cut the balls in half. The are just styrofoam in the center. The cut pretty easily.
I put a dab of Tombow Liquid Glue between each flower layer and then hot glued the felted center. Poked a floral wire through the back and in no time I had literally, a bouquet of these cuties.
Put them in a vase filled with some jelly beans and these are done. So, Happy Spring to you!
I’ll use the for center pieces at my Card Buffet this weekend.
