Hi y'all! I had a little break in blogging and now I am back to share a fun bucket of flowers with you.
I know that Sunday is Mother's Day, and this would make a great everlasting Mother's Day bouquet for sure, but I decided to create a birthday card as this is a class project I am teaching for the end of the month.
I started with a cut file from SVG Cuts and used that for the bucket and the roses. The blue flowers are a Silhouette cut file. I used Tombow Mono Multi to put the bucket together. A tip when using Mono Multi on a project like this is to use the Mono Multi sparingly. If you glop on too much, the paper will become saturated and it will take way to long to dry. To attach the print panels to the bucket I used Tombow Mono Dots Adhesive.
For each of the flowers, I sponged the petals and then glued them together with Tombow Mono Multi, stacking the petals catty wompus of each other so that the pieces form a flower. I did this for both types of flowers. To add a finishing touch to each of the blue flowers, I adhered a button to the center using a 1/4 of a Tombow Power Tab. The Power Tabs are clear and very easy to cut with your regular scissors.
To create the card I used some Tombow Mono Dots Adhesive to adhere the print papers to the card. The flower was created as I stated above. The leaves were embossed and then folded in the center to add some dimension. I attached the leaves with Tombow Foam Tabs.
Here is a picture of the completed project. I really think this would make a great gift for someone special.
