Flower Bouquet Center Pieces

Now that people know I can make things I have be recruited to help with the center pieces for a pot luck we do for our classified staff at my school. I came up with the theme of spring so that I could make flower center pieces. I normally do them in vases but they were out at the dollar store and I saw these cute baskets. They are a little harder to work with but cute. I had to improvise on how to get the flowers to stand up. I ended up sticking the wood into a starburst and using hot glue to tack them down. It worked well. I received a lot of compliments.

Again I used Plantin for the flowers and Penny Black stamps to decorate the baskets. I colored the stamps with my prism colored pencils.

Flower Bouquet

Cute Flowers I made for my sister in laws. I used a cute Penny Black stamp and inked the edges of the scallop. Attached it with a ribbon. Filled the vase jelly beans and added the paper flowers. I cut the flowers from Plantin SchoolBook.


I made this clock for my mother in law. I found this idea on the Cricut message board.  I glued the paper to the canvas, added ribbon to the seams of the paper, and decorated it. Added a couple pictures and a saying. I bought a clock kit from Joann's and followed the instructions on how to install it.

Mini scrap book ~~Toilet Paper Roll 1

I found this great you tube video on the Cricut message board and decided to try one for myself. I liked it so much I made two.
I made mine by smashing the toilet paper holder together then applying spray adhesive all over the roll and wrapping the paper around it. Once it dried I glued ribbon over the crease. I then put the wallet size photos, I ordered them through Costco, on the paper. I tied ribbon to the binding. For how to bind what they tutorial above. The tags I used on the inside of each roll where cut from Plantin School Book cartridge, chipboard or thick paper, than cover with decorative paper.
The cover I used my Cricut to cut out the letter and my stamp from Micheal's dollar bin. I used gamsol to blend the colors on my girl.
Lots of ideas from lots of great women crafters came into play on this project.
