Plant Kindness & Gather Love
Emily here today to share one of my favorite projects that I've done this far with Authentique's lovely papers. This was one of my big projects that I sent off to CHA, but since CHA is right around the corner, I thought I would give you all a peek at what I have been working on.
"Gathering" collection? Yes, this collection came out around Thanksgiving, but it is a great one for all seasons. I thought that these flowers would help me to remember that Spring is just around the corner. Though it's been snowy/rainy here, I now have a beautiful bouquet sitting on my table that will never die!
Want to learn to make your own beautiful bouquet? Well, you're in for a treat! I've got a step-by-step tutorial prepared for you! Beware though, these flowers are time consuming and addicting to make! I didn't count, but I think it took me 30-40 flowers to fill this bouquet (and a lot of paper)... each one took about 20 minutes to make.
Just a side note... when making these flowers, BE CAREFUL! Hot glue is very hot and it hurts really bad when you get burnt with it! Also, be prepared to go through A LOT of paper, I went through almost 2 full 6x6 pads and several sheets of 12x12, but the end product was all worth it :-)
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my project and tutorial! ♥
