A Bouquet of Spring

Hello and Welcome to my first
Design Team post

This project is something that I made for my Mothers for Mother's Day.

When I decided to make this I wanted to use what I call "Ugly Paper"
Now "Ugly Paper" in not necessarily ugly but some that you will not really use,
 you know the papers that are in the packs.

The Pattern Paper that I used for the I had for so long that I can not remember the Pack of Paper I got it from.

I cut the Vase from Plantin SchoolBook page 80 "Tall Ball" 
I cut at "Fit to Page" for the vase size.
I put together Mog Pog and cut of the handles

I placed foam at the bottom of the vases so that I was able to stick Pipe Cleaning Wire in it for the steams of the flowers.

The Flower were cut from Accent Essentials at 2 inches
on page 63 and 56

The center of flower were cut out with a 1 inch EK Success Scallop circle punch.

I cut two flowers for every steam used and glued them together on the steams.

The Butterflies were cut from Picturesque on page 65 at 2 inches

This was simple to make but can have a dramatic affect.

Thank for looking,
I hope you enjoyed my first DT Post.
