Bloomin' Bouquet Project Kit

 


Mother's Day. Teacher appreciation. Just because. Say thank you with this no-maintenance bouquet. There's no watering, no weeding-just enjoying. This easy-to-assemble kit comes complete with the petals, stems, and buttons to create the flowers, as well as four different tags to make this the perfect gift for any occasion. All you need is some paper, ribbon or a vase to add the finishing touches to the bouquet.

As if that weren't enough, the kit contains a "baker's dozen"! This means you can create and give (or keep) a dozen flowers, and have a bonus flower left over to pass along to someone new! Give it to someone you wouldn't normally think of: a teller at the bank, a grocery store clerk, or the librarian at your local library. Anyone you encounter on your way that you'd like to give a little "thank you" to-and introduce them to Stampin' Up!
Ordering information:
Item 134542 $12.95
Available starting April 29, while supplies last.
Kit contents:
  • 2 sheets of preprinted and precut flowers on 12" X 12" cardstock; makes 13 flowers using Pool Party, Gumball Green, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, and Rich Razzleberry
  • 13 Vintage Faceted Buttons
  • 13 green floral wire stems
Adhesive not included. (Glue gun recommended.)
Training Tips:
  • This kit makes a great gift, both assembled and unassembled. Your customers may want to give it as a fun do-at-home project, or create it themselves to give.
  • This kit can appeal to both stampers and non-stampers; the ease of assembly means anyone can do it!
  • Use this kit for a quick and easy class! Just provide some adhesive, and your class preparation is done for you.
  • Add your own finishing touch to the bouquet: place it in a vase, wrap it up in tissue paper, decorative ribbon, or twine.

Blossoms and Butterflies


Morning friends! Here is one fun easy birthday card that I had put together. This is such a girly card with blossom and pretty little butterflies. I love using the honey comb embossed folder. It's too bad that I don't have any bees stamps to match with the honeycomb, but the itty bitty butterflies well work. Also it fit perfectly inside 1 3/ 4 circle hole. I love how that look, a little 3-D effects there. 


Here is an up closed of all the little details. It was a bit tricky to line up and punch the circles. I have to used a guideline to punch the circle, but it turned out great!

Ok, sorry for a short post. I'm off prep for my class today, stay tune for the projects.... ^_^

Happy Sunday,
Chan

A messy vintage birthday card for  grandma! 

That is it for today! Have a great weekend!
