Flowers, Flowers Everywhere Blog Hop - Day 2

Hi everyone! Happy Mother's Day! Welcome back to Day 2 of the Flowers, Flowers Everywhere Blog Hop! If you have arrived here from A Scrapping Time, you are in the right place. If you have just happened to stop by my blog, please head over to Creations with Kathryn to start from the beginning! We have a ton more great projects to show you today and you don't want to miss out!

For my project today I created a pot of paper flowers for Mother's Day! Ok it is a present for myself but I love it just the same. I used the Mother's Day Bouquet Cricut cartridge to create the flowers and leaves and the Walk in My Garden cartridge for the bumblebees.

All paper used is white cardstock. I used the Imagine and the Blossom patterns cartridge to print all of the colours and patterns used on my project.

Each flower has three layers - one at 3", one at 2.5" and one at 2". The layers were attached together at the center with an epoxy brad. All flower and leaf pieces were inked along the edges.

The leaves are all embossed with the Victoria Cuttlebug folder.

I created the stems by wrapping wire with green painter's tape. The flowers and leaves were attached with a hot glue gun.

I created two tiny bumblebees (0.75") and attached them to their flowers with a thin wire.

There is a larger bumblebee (2")attached to the front of the pail.

Hope you like it! Don't forget, I am still giving away the Cherry Blossom Gypsy Starter Kit, so leave a comment on this post for a chance to win! If you missed yesterday's post, click HERE to see that post and leave a comment there as well for another chance!
