Flowers and Milk Cartons

Good morning! Weather is horrible again today - great excuse to stay inside and craft I think!!!

I wanted to show you some of the things I made for my displays on Saturday. As soon as I saw the Fun FLowers die I wanted to try and make some "real" flowers in a vase with them. Here is my feeble effort!! My lovely wedding flower friend gave me some floristry wire and some of tha green tape and I thought yeah this will be easy!

Dont think I will ever make a florist! That tape was hard to handle!!! So dont look too close at the stems but here are the flowers!!

Added some of the beautiful new seam binding ribbon to the centre of them

The ladies who attended my launch got a little mini milk carton each, well they had to pick one each! Each of them contained a Lindor ball (my fave chocs) but one of them contained a Pear Pizazz button and that was my prize winning carton!! It was fun seeing the ladies pick a milk carton and was even more funny that the one left to last that no one picked was the winner!! Well done Jane for winning the ribbon!


The papers are of course the Springtime Vintage. I am eagerly awaiting new supplies of these as I have used up my pre order stash!!

Hope you like my flowers and cartons!!

See you tomorrow

Fab idea- don't worry that tape is definitely an art in itself !
