Finally I made bouquets with my flowers!



My husband has been after me for a while now to put my paper flowers on stems so I can make bouquets...Last Thursday I went to Micheals and I bought all that I need to do so! With a couple of tricks from a professional florist...I took the plunge and made a bouquet! And another one and a third! I'm very proud of my first trials! I'm confident with more practice...There will be nothing to stop me!

Summer Breeze....


One of my customer, a wonderful bride-to-be....loved my flowers so much she had refered my shop to one of her friend...This friend...like the country, fresh look like a summer breeze...I started to create a few samples for her and this is one of them! 
I used white branches - glued tiny green flowers on them and I made small  daisies that I had attached on strings! It's a work in progress...but I like the look so far!



I also came up with these colorful blooms!
Available in many color, the perfect embellishment for any events or craft projects!



And at last...
These are the flowers I have created for a Sweet bride!
I just love those flowers! I hope to have time in the following weeks to make more to list in my shop...These flowers are unique and special!

I will certainly take pictures! But at some point I started to play with paper and I came up with an all fushia daisy...I said to hubby: "look I made a daisy!" he replied..."daisies are white with a yellow center!" So I made white daisies with  yellow centers! Now in all my paper flowers...the

My head is now spinning with a millions ideas of what I can do with them...How about you? :D
