Handmade Flowers!


Every month on the 6th, the Limelight Papercrafts Design Team takes on the challenge of creating a themed project. This month, we have focused on handmade flowers.

For my project, I have created a headband with a ribbon flower and a matching card. My tutorial for these ribbon flowers can be found HERE. I chose this fabulously girlie ribbon, the Grosgrain in Black with Fuchsia Dots. The button in the center is also accented with our Pink Burlap String (35 cents for 10 yards!!!). The card base actually is embossed with an SU Big Shot polka dot Texturz Plate. The scalloped layer behind the polka dotted ribbon is Jillibean Soup Soup Staples in Pink Sugar. The sentiment, which I adore, is from the February Unity Stampin' Store Kit, Life is Fabulous.

The headband is simply a ribbon flower that I glued onto a $1 leather headband from Wal-Mart! Easy-peasy! Wouldn't this be a cute birthday gift for a little girl this spring? I even got my 2-year-old girlie to model it for you. The modeling was short lived. I was chasing her around the backyard trying to get her to stand still long enough to snap a few pics. She was distracted by the slide and the sandbox. And she thought she was hilarious running away.



Be sure to check out the other ladies' blogs to see what they have created for this fun challenge!!

First of all, your daughter is adorable! :) I love your ribbon flower and can't wait to see what the rest of the DT has come up with. The scrapbook store that I design for is currently showcasing handmade flowers each week in March so I have been having fun trying out lots of new techniques.
