Not only are we celebrating Flourishes new store, but most of us in the US have had a long, messy winter and we're ready for it to be over! So, I'm celebrating the approach of Spring with my project today. I decided that those gorgeous little images in the A Year In Flowers Set 1 would make great Spring garden stakes. So, that's what I did!
I stamped the images on Classic White card stock and colored them with Copic markers. Then I cut them out with a Labels Four Nestabilities die. Next, I laminated them--this will, hopefully, make them last longer. After I laminated them, I cut them out again with a larger die and mounted them on a wooden craft stick. They probably won't last very long outside, but they'd make a great label for a gift of either a pot of flowers or some bulbs. If you don't have a laminating machine, you can get adhesive sheets that I'd think would work equally as well.
Thanks so much for dropping in today! Be sure to check out the rest of the Friends of Flourishes team and some of the Flourishes Senior DT girls for more inspiration as we celebrate today!
