Mother's Day was several day's ago but I still haven't shared with you this little project I made for my Mom. I was inspired by this lovely Lori Williams project.
Flower vase is made with paper cup and it's covered with folded pattern paper. I used SNS 1/2"Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape to adhere the pattern paper to the cup. It holds really well. Lacy Lilac Glitter was glued with SNS Brushable Glue. Purple Pearl String was colored with Flexmarker and it's attached in place with Mega Tack Glue.
Word "Emale" is cut out with Memory Box dies and it's adhered to the acetate with Mega Tack Glue. Then I attached the wire behind the letter M. To hide all the glue marks I adhered each letter to the other side of the acetate also. The word "Armsale" is a PeelOff. I was so happy to get PeelOff's with Estonian words. I found them thanks to Malle. Suur tänu, Malle!
|Sentiment: For Darling Mother|
Then you have so many flowers on a project there has to be at least one butterfly on there too :) Butterfly is attached to an arc made of wire. Wire is covered with white satin ribbon and peal string.
Flowers are cut with Blooms Four dies. I don't remember exactly how many flowers I cut but I think it was 8 largest (colored with Peeled Paint and Pine Needle inks), 16 middle (some flower centers are inked with Dandelion and others with Pear Tart ink) and 18 smallest flowers (centers inked with Pear Tart ink). All flowers was shaped on foam mat with stylus and attached to the Styrofoam ball (cut in half) with needles. To hide the needles head I put blob of SNS Dimensional Glue in center of each flower and covered with Canary Floking. Then everything was dry some nail heads was showing through. I decided to put Liquid Pearls on top.
Flower topper can be lift up. Inside is a room for healthy snacks :) I put dried Cranberries in there. They are unbelievable tasty.
To cover the ugly cut line on Styrofoam I cut 4 circles out of cereal box with SB Standard circles dies and clued them under the Styrofoam. I made two circles smaller then other. It will stop the topper to slip away from the base so easily.
