I made these for a friend. I was surprised at how easily they came together and how awesome they turned out, I thought I would have had to make 2-3 before I began this project, but the first one turned out great!
The Lily file is Penny Duncan's. She has a wonderful tutorial here that I pretty much followed. I did substitute for a couple things I didn't have. Instead of watercolor pencil, I used watercolors; instead of craft floss I used dental floss (the stamens were a bit 'floppy', I'm sure the craft floss would have taken care of that); I added glimmer mist (cause I'm in love); and instead of floral wire I used twisty ties (I only needed a little, since my project was different).
It's difficult to tell in the above picture, but the flowers are pens. I love pretty useful stuff. I did have a hard time giving this away, might have to make some for me! The glass is a recycled spaghetti jar (washed out multiple times). Ribbon from Hobby Lobby, tag, twine and papers I had. Close up of the flowers, you can kinda see the glimmer mist.
Close up of tag. The stamp is embossed. It was from one of the first stamp sets I bought and the name isn't on the box. I think it was see-through something or another, as it was when acrylic stamps first became popular. The flower is made out of Basic Grey scraps and the patterned paper on the tag is from a baby boy paper stack sold at Hobby Lobby, not sure the brand (can't find it in the mess right now)-it isn't Paper Studio. Hope my friend likes it, and maybe you will be inspired to make a spring bouquet!
