I'm just a tad bit addicted to Pinterest and this is an idea I saw there and decided to recreate--I think the original was from the super-talented Heather Summers. I used the Hostess paper Cheerful Treat from IBC and the colors Melon Mambo, Concord Crush, Pear Pizzazz and Bashful Blue for my flowers. The majority of my flowers were created using the die Fun Flowers, a few circle punches and the blossom punch from the occasions mini. My leaves were made from the Island Floral die.
I covered my $1.25 clay pot with the designer series paper cut into strips and attached with Mod-Podge. The ribbon is concord crush stitched ribbon. I bought some floral wire and the foamy stuff to stick the flower into when I bought the pot. The filler is leftover filler paper from Easter. =-)
Here's the little 4 x 4 card I made to go with the pot--I used the Cottage Garden set for the sentiment and more of the Cheerful Treat paper and concord crush ribbon.
