Spring Banner!

Hello there!  My stamping club met last night and we had the best time!!  Our theme for the night was Spring so I made sure there were flowers and butterflies everywhere. I made each of my club members a little flower vase that looked like this:

I made each of the flowers and hot glued them onto either a pixie stick or a pencil!  The vase is a cute little water bottle from the dollar store!

I stuffed a little bit of tissue paper and a handful of candy down into the vase.  I added a belly band of paper around the middle and a framelit shape die cut of the stamp You Make the World a Better place from Starburst Sayings.

Each one got a ribbon and a sparkly silver butterfly!  These were so much fun to make! There are 6 people in the club so they took a bit of, but oh so worth it because well, they were cute and edible! LOL

I also made each club member a rose with a yummy almond Hershey's Kiss tucked down into the center! I CASE-d this idea from the very sweet and talented Connie Stewart!  Thank you Connie! :)

I made these using the Spiral  Big Shot die, the Blossom punch and the Build a Blossom punch.

Made several different colors!

Absolutely love these and would have made tons more, but only a few kisses come in that giant bag and well......I ate the rest!  In my defense you need sustenance to keep on crafting, right?!  Hershey's kisses and a cup of coffee will give you just that! ;)

I saw this idea on Becky Robert's site and fell head over heels in love with it!  She used a different treat inside though and her dresses were decorated differently.  I decorated all 6 of my little dresses with a different design!  It was like playing dress up! Lots of fun making these little guys too! :)

We made three projects and I wanted to share one of them with you!  

My girls all like to make banners!  Well, truth be told they all like to have banners there was some dis-chord amoungst the group when it came time to tie the whole thing together! LOL  Everyone was a super good sport about it though!  I am lucky to have such a wonderful group of ladies that participate each month!

Here are some close up pictures of each letter:

I tied a little flower to each end to make it even brighter and happier!!  
These little banners just brighten a room right up!

Speaking of brightening a room right up, would you like to see another picture of our little grand pumpkin?!  She is definitely a room-brightener-upper!!  Take a look at this sweet, sweet face!!

So cute!!! :)  I am just toast when it comes to this little lady!   

Ok, well I have about a bazillion things to do today so I better get a move on!  I hope that you are having a wonderful weekend!  I will be back soonest with more to share!
