Bloomin' Bouquet Project Kit


Mother's Day. Teacher appreciation. Just because. Say thank you with this no-maintenance bouquet. There's no watering, no weeding-just enjoying. This easy-to-assemble kit comes complete with the petals, stems, and buttons to create the flowers, as well as four different tags to make this the perfect gift for any occasion. All you need is some paper, ribbon or a vase to add the finishing touches to the bouquet.

As if that weren't enough, the kit contains a "baker's dozen"! This means you can create and give (or keep) a dozen flowers, and have a bonus flower left over to pass along to someone new! Give it to someone you wouldn't normally think of: a teller at the bank, a grocery store clerk, or the librarian at your local library. Anyone you encounter on your way that you'd like to give a little "thank you" to.







Kit contents:

  • 2 sheets of preprinted and precut flowers on 12" X 12" cardstock; makes 13 flowers using Pool Party, Gumball Green, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, and Rich Razzleberry
  • 13 Vintage Faceted Buttons
  • 13 green floral wire stems

To make your very own Bloomin' Bouquet, go to my Stampin' UP! online store.

Peter Rabbit and Company

I am sure you have heard the saying, "Multiplying like rabbits".  Well, it is certainly true.  Rabbits do have a tendency to multiply, especially this week in my Stampin' Studio.  I was happily cruising through Pinterest when I came across the cutest rabbits created by Pamela Staples.  They were screaming PIN ME!  Suddenly I was collecting rabbits and they were quickly multiplying.  You can see my collection HERE.   Eventually I stopped collecting and started creating.   All told I ended up with a dozen adorable rabbits. Here are three that hung around long enough to get their picture taken.





You too can invite Peter to visit.

To make a PINK rabbit you will need:

Layer the cards and run them through the Big Shot using the Top Note Die (back and front of bunny)
Die cut six ovals 2"x2 5/8"from WW cardstock (4 for ears and 2 for feet)

Assemble by looking at the above photos.

Note:  I created a box to go between the bunny front and back.  It is the perfect size for a small treat.  If you would like the pattern to the box, leave a comment at the bottom of this post with your email address and I will send you a pdf of the box template.
