I came across this post and loved the idea of the handmade
flowers. So I decided to give it a try. I made a few flowers
using the technique they posted and then made a few from
a different technique. (Which is basically circles shaped into petals.
I used a Classico Alfredo sauce jar, luckily I had two, and put
raffia inside. I found some mahogony colored raffia at the
dollarstore which is also where I got the tiny dowels that I glued
the flowers on. I just used a ink pad to color them green.
I made and added pinwheels just to have a little something else
in there. :)
The cards I made are based on a card sketch posted by Gloria.
I used the same color papers and made similar flowers for on the
cards just so it all matches. :)
