Felt Flower Bouquet

Hello everyone!! I am sooo bummed...my internet was down for over 4 hours this evening and come to find out it was my router causing all the problems. We had to plug the computer directly into the modem so now the laptop, phone, and tablet don't have internet access....yikes!!! I guess I better get to staples tomorrow and buy a new router!! Anyway....I figured I better get my blog post finished before anything else happened...LOL!!

I made this sweet little milk glass bowl full of felt flowers for the Moxie Fab World's Summer Home Decor Challenge. Three different rolled flower Die-namics from My favorite Things and hand cut leaves were used...... they were hot glued to a piece of styrofoam that was adhered to the inside of the bowl with double sided tape. The punched layered butterfly was adhered with copper wire and several sizes of pearls were used for the flower centers. The felt is from Papertrey Ink (they have the best felt on the market!!) and the butterfly punch is from Martha Stewart.


This is going to my friend as a house warming gift...she just moved and I am going to spend a day next week helping her do a little decorating....I know she will love this!!!

Thanks for visiting....have a great day!!!
