3-D Flowers for Mother's Day

Good Morning My Crafty Friends!  I hope everyone is having a good week so far.  I want to share a Mother's Day Project with you today.  I am actually making 5 of these.  I play Poker-Keno once a month with 5 of my family members. {my mom, 3 of my cousins and my future SIL} So I decided to make them each a flower arrangement with paper flowers.  I went down to the Dollar Tree and picked up 5 of these bud vases for $1 and some glass marbles (well at least that's what I call them) and some floral tape.  Then I went home and got started.

I cut my flowers from Flower Shoppe and CTMH Art Philosophy.  I cut them at all different sizes ranging from 2 1/2 inches to 4 1/2 inches.  I inked the edges using SU inks and CTMH inks and added some bling to some.  My leaves are silk because I needed a something to make the arrangement full without having to put a dozen flowers in. LOL

A closer look at the flowers!

My ribbon is from Michael's and my sweet sentiment is from K Andrew Designs Art Stamps "Of Mice & Lil Men".  I stamped my sentiment is SU Regal Rose and used Making Memories tag maker to create my tag.  I wanted a sentiment that could be displayed all the time rather than just through Mother's Day. 

I'll be linking my project here:


Thanks for stopping by!  
Hope you enjoyed my project today!
