Lil' St. Patty's green and a Spring Wreath!

Well hello to you and happy, happy weekend!  I had the most fun class last night!!  Some of my girls got together ((We sure missed you, Dreama!!)) and we made the Burlap and Blooms wreath from the Occasions catalog. It comes in a kit and you make all of the flowers and then dress your wreath up for Spring.  Fun, fun stuff!!  The girls all did an awesome job!!  Here is the one I made:

Everything (with the exception of the giant butterfly!) comes in the kit. 

The flowers were fun to make!  The circle flowers were a bit of a challenge, but everyone's turned out great!

 I added the butterfly later on.  It is the gorgeous Swallowtail stamp.  I stamped it right on to DSP and cut it out and hot glued it on.  I may add some glitter to her wings...still rolling that idea around!  

I have to be honest.  When I first eye spied this kit in the cattie I wasn't jump out of my jammies excited, but after making it I think I might be in love!!  It is just such a pretty Spring project!    Wouldn't your wall or front door be so happy to wear one of these cuties?!  If you would like to grab your own kit I will add a link down below.  Just click the picture (down below) and it will take you right to my on line store where you can grab your own kit and get to flower making!   I would love to see yours too, so be sure to send me a photo!  E mail me with any questions you may have!  


I always try to do a little something for my class attendees to say thank you for coming!  Since St. Patty's Day is right around the corner I ran with the green!  I made this centerpiece:

I used a gift bag and some wooden skewers.  I made the flowers from the Blossom and Pansy punch and added golden wrapped Rolos for the centers. I tucked in a little green tissue paper and plopped it on the table!

Lucky, lucky green!

This is what is looked like before it got bunched with the others!

I also made several single flowers for each guest:
I punched, layered, dimensional-ed and glue dotted! :) 

Side view.

They were pretty cute all together. I put a couple at each place setting and also just spread some around the table.  All the pieces can be found below.

Finally, each person got their own little chocolate topped four leaf clover:

Made from the Heart, Modern  Label and 1" Circle punches.

The hello tag is from Perfect Pennants.

Quick and fun to make!

Yum! :)

Ok, well I have promised myself that I would spend some time in my stamp space today trying to get it cleaned up.  Looks  like a tornado whipped through....twice!  I will include a list  to everything I used to make all of this fun stuff below.  If you see anything you need just click the photo and it will take you to my online store where you can grab what you need!  I hope that you have a wonderful day!

I will be back soonest with more to share!
