A sweet bouquet
I am back finally being able to create my cards for my DT's. Today sees a new challenge over at MMCS and this week the theme is
We are sponsered this week by the fabulous
So if you read my post yesterday you will know that I have been making samples for Trimcraft over the weekend and this little creation I thought would also be perfect for this weeks challenge. I have made a little bouquet of flowers from paper, the design I saw in a craft mag a while ago and although it is very time consuming the results are fabulous and well worth the effort.
Basically each flower consists of five individual petals glued together, which are made by intricately folding squares of paper, in this case I used 5cm sq, 6cm sq and 7cm sq to make them different sizes. I used the First Edition Love Letters paper pad (which you will find here), a bit of green wire for the stems, wrapped it all together in some tissue paper and tied with some pink satin ribbon. There are 8 flowers altogether in my liitle bunch.
I hope you like my creation, please do pop on over to the challenge blog, check out my team mates creations and join in the fun.
