Making the card yesterday reminded me that one of the monthly challenges at the Hero Arts Blog is to make paper flowers. I decided to use my newest Hero Arts flower and some Amuse papers that sweet Barb gave to me for my birthday, along with some pretty buttons. I like that this is a way to "preserve" those pretty papers and buttons even after they've all been used up!
supplies: Amuse ginghams and dots, Hero Arts CL527 Stitched Frame, dotted buttons from The Ribbon Girl and others from my stash, wire
Here's a video and tutorial by Shari Carroll showing the same technique that I used to make my bouquet.
I put them in a little glass jar filled with sand, and the wire is on the flimsy side, so when the breeze hits them from my open window, they bob and move just like the real things!
