Upcycled Bouquet

May 10, 2015 No Comments

Several weeks ago, I worked on a project that used a lot of lace.  The lace came on these large spools and when I was done, I had about fifteen or sixteen of them.  Sometimes when I finish/empty a container, I have a hard time throwing it out because I’m just sure I can do/make something with or from it.  That was the case with the spools.  I knew right away that I wanted to try a small flower arrangement but, I just didn’t get around to it.  Flowers and Mother’s Day seemed like a good combination.  So, that’s what I’ve played with this afternoon while I waited for my daughter to finish her work so we could go play together.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Here are some flowers for you:

I started by wrapping the spool with Basic Gray cardstock and a band of Flowerpot designer paper.  Then, I added a length of Gold Sequin Trim.

Using the Bouquet Bigz L Die, I cut flowers from Crushed Curry and Pool Party.  Then, I added some Garden Green leaves.  The petals and leaves were all gently shaped with my bone folder.

In order to layer the flowers to make them fuller, I snipped them apart and overlapped petals.  This allows the layers to stack nicely and stand apart.  A hot glue gun works best for putting the flowers together.

The top and bottom of the spool were covered with circles of Garden Green cardstock to give it a more finished look.

The sentiment from Honeycomb Hello is inked with Basic Gray on Whisper White and punched with the Artisan Label punch (retiring).

I think these would make wonderful table favors or gifts for a coworker’s desk. Or, how about for a favorite teacher?
