Bloomin’ Bouquet

bloomin' bouquet paper flower project kit

What a fun bouquet!  Not only is it a springy addition to your home décor, it is also a wonderful project to enjoy creating.  And if you watch the video below you will learn that there are 13 flowers in this project and one is this purple flower.  The purple flower is an extra that you can give to a friend as a pick-me-up/I-like-you surprise.

I’ve been reading Shawn Achers, The Happiness Advantage: The Seven Principles of Positive Psychology That Fuel Success and Performance at Work  and I’ve learned the significant impact of even small gestures.  I came across Shawn Achers TED talk on facebook and I just loved it, so I had to read the book!  It’s a wonderful book with fascinating examples of the principles of positive psychology. If you’re looking for a good book to read, I highly recommend it.

Easter Egg Basket Favor

hearts a flutter easter basket This fun little Happy Easter Egg Basket Favor is made quickly from Pretty in Pink cardstock and the small oval punch.  This would be a great little treat to give to friends, family or co-workers.

I started with a 5″ x 9-1/2″ piece of cardstock that I scored at 2-1/2″, 4-1/2″, 7″, 9″, then scored 2″ from the bottom, which is easily done with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool .  Fold it up like you would the 2-4-6-8 box .  Before I assembled the box I inserted the 2-1/2″ side into the large oval punch to punch the window.  Then I cut a 2″ x 2-1/2″ piece of window sheet and adhered the window sheet inside the box with glue dots.

The handle is punched from the Scallop Ribbon punch and the ends covered with a punched Itty Bitty Shape punch flower.

I stamped the Easter eggs on this Easter Egg Basket Favor box with the designs from the Hearts of Flutter stamp set, punched them out with the small oval punch and adhered them to the front of the box.  I then used a piece of Certainly Celery cardstock randomly snipped to make the grass.  The interior is also filled with thinly sliced cardstock.

valentine mini sour cream containers To make the mini sour cream twist container start with paper measuring 2-1/2″ x 4″ and follow the instructions for  the full size container.   You can view the instructions and video for the sour cream twist container here.

valentine mini sour cream containers I stamped some Hearts a Flutter hearts on Whisper White cardstock with Pretty in Pink ink and embossed them with clear embossing powder before trimming them out with the matching framelit dies.  I tied them to the containers with a bit of white Bakers Twine.

valentine mini sour cream containers I rolled these together quickly while I talked to my daughter on the phone.  If you mass produce them like I did here, do it one step at a time.  First, cut all your paper.  Then add the sticky strip to all of them.  And finally, assemble the containers.  It goes pretty quickly.
