Blooming Bouquet Arrangement

Several weeks ago I saw the Blooming Bouquet for sale at SU and decided I would order it and try it out.  I love how it turned out!

You get everything you need to create this adorable bouquet.  SU even put out a how-to video.  The one thing I did different was put the large flower down first and then glued the rest of the flowers on top of each other - I found this worked better for me.  Try both ways and see what works for you.  I decided to give this to my daughter for her desk at work, so I used a small canning jar and put some colored shredded paper inside for decoration and glued some ruffled ribbon around the edge and a bow on the front.  I also make a few pinwheels using SU's Sizzix pinwheel.  I used the same procedure that I did for the flowers to make the pinwheels using my 1/2" circle punch for the backing and flower wire for the stem.  I just ordered my Flower Shop stamp and Pansy punch and will definitely use these to make another bouquet.

The girls and I are working on some July 4th projects in between having some fun!  Hope you have a great week - stay cool!

Thanks for stopping bye,
Nancy, Rachel & Sarah

So cute, and looks like lots of fun to create with all those pretty papers. I just bought the pansy punch and coordinating set and I love it.
