With this month coming to an end I needed to have our Stamp Club meeting. I sat down in the little blue room to come up with an idea for a project this month. I had heard of candy bouquets but, to be honest, it sounded a little cheesey to me. I know, I know, shame on me for judging. I'm glad that it was the only project coming to mind. I had just ordered the Blossom Party original die for my big shot and this project gave me an excuse to break it in.
My original thought was to use Dum-Dum suckers because they are smaller, but I could not find them anywhere. Finally I found mini suckers and they are just the right size. I was planning on just making sucker blooms, then Pixy Stix came to mind as taller stemmed flowers. So, I jumped in the car and went to the store just for Pixy Stix! I'm crazy like that.
When I started making the blooms I only used two layers of flowers and it was looking very flat...and cheesey, oh no! So, I cut more and crunched and crinkled and layered and I started loving it.
Then I needed something to put the bouquet in and remembered using this watering can template from Splitcoast Stampers a while back. Perfect. What a sweet little gift for birthday, thank you, or any time!
I'm so glad I gave this idea a try because I love how it turned out! Looking forward to sharing it with my Stamp Club ladies tomorrow night.
Hope you are having a great day, even if it is a Monday. Thanks for stopping by the little blue room!
