Today's post is totally inspired by spring.
But before we get started,
I have a question for you.
I was wondering if you've seen
all the beautiful posies floating around?
They're everywhere and gorgeous!
Now although I love the fabric ones,
you know my heart belongs to paper crafting.
So when I decided to try my hand,
I knew paper posies were the way to go.
I started by cutting out flowers with my Cricut.
I used two different petal styles
and lots of different sizes.
Once I had a good variety,
it was time to for a little spray acrylic.
After a couple of coats of acrylic
and some drying time, it was back to the fun.
I layered my petals and placed a large button on the back.
I used a thin black strip of tulle to lace everything together.
Here's the back...
and here's the front.
Finally, I attached my paper posy
to a plain orange candle with a loop of tulle,
don't cha just love it??
Yep, I'm definitely seeing more of
these paper posies in my future.
Wouldn't they be adorable on the corner
of a plain picture frame?!
Oh the ideas! :)
