Bouquet Die Flower and Library Paper Wreath

Yesterday was a special day, I finished this fun project and was able to deliver it to the place were they will be displayed. I made about 20 wreaths and 20 centerpiece embellishments to support the Milton Public Library and their Anual Balloom Gala. I have been looking for a fun project to try my  Bouquet Bigz L Die with. And I did!  Gotta love the big flowers you can create with it.

My Stampin'Up! Materials: 
Bouquet Bigz L Die & Big Shot Die Cut Machine, Butterflies Framelits (is on backordered, but soon will be released again:),
My Other Materials: 
a book from the library (well several for the cones), black and vanilla card stock  dollar store gold tissue paper, photo film, fishing line to hang them -all these was provided by the library-; crop-a-file and eyelets, a hot glue gun and a can of gold spray

This is the back of the wreath, these will be hung from the ceiling so both sides needed something pretty.

The first one I made.

Remember I made bunch…my Living Room was bombarded by wreaths this week. 
I had a group of friends that came two Sundays ago and made about 7 flowers with me and cut and sponged and prepped for 20 wreaths. I so love having crafty amazing friends.
Thanks Virginia, Caroline, Cynthia and Lynnsey!


Hanging

I really liked them, what do you think?

I am living the word I received from heaven this year: enjoy.
I felt such a joy sharing these with my community. We may be selling some for donations to the library after the event. So excited! My kids and I love this library and have been happy to volunteer for events.

And since we have been hibernating this week (my kiddos have been fighting fevers and colds all week long). yesterday my girly (who was feeling better) and I did some Easter Crafts. Here is her cards. I think she is a nature. She did fabulous, and I am so proud of her.

Super easy and cute for this age. 
She took one of my Layers of Gratitude Paper Pumpkin stamps and made a background.  We then cut an oval and she proceeded to tape strips of pretty paper on the back of that layer.She loved punching some Itty Bitty flowers and adding bling. :)


Hope you are encouraged to use your talents to bless your community.
Is not always all about "what can I get?"…why not "What can I give?"
The Milton Library in Pennsylvania gives and gives and has so many neat events. 

I am grateful for the opportunity and so excited to share it with you.
I will be sharing some tips on this and the centerpieces on he next days plus a card I made inspired by this project.

Have a creative weekend!
