Paper Posies

Hi all!
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,
and TADA! 
So do tell,
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! :)

I'm linking up with The Idea Room
and Today's Creative Blog,
