Ready for Spring
This Polar Vortex has me in a cold, frozen state! My stamp club is coming tomorrow night, and while the roads are still bad.. we all have cabin fever and need to chat! So I decided to make some cute little spring flowers with a sweet treat inside! Several of my club have connections to schools, scout troops, or need favors at meetings so I thought these would be perfect for the upcoming Valentine’s Day!
I cut the flower from Accent Essentials on page 55 at 3.50. I got 9 flowers from a 12 x 12 sheet. This was paper from a CTMH special kit last year, but I love the paper.. and since it had green on one side, and the pretty print on the other.. I’m making these for the two scout troops I’m involved with. I used two layers, and put some Styrofoam in a little decorated box I had, and for a little of time, a cute centerpiece!! I curled up the edges on the top layer, and down on the bottom. They could be inked, and for adults, I’d probably do that, but for kids, they’re just going to tear into that Tootsie Roll pop. Who are we kidding.. I’ll probably do that too! Stay warm if you’ve been part of this nasty winter weather!! Thanks for stopping by!
