Happy April 2 everyone. Its time for another Second on the Second post over at Altered Book Lover, Bleubeard's and Elizabeth's blog.
I guess if I can't have real spring blooms outside right now, making some is the way to go.
I will show you some Tyvek blooms I made back in April of 2014. (Tyvek is this fake fiber material that us used to wrap houses with before their outer siding is added and is also used to make mailing bags as it is strong and waterproof.)
Here's the link to the original post: More Flowers.
So I started with this used post office mailing bag made out of Tyvek. I know this material has another name, but I can't think of what it is.
I die cut some flowers and used alcohol inks to color them. I also used some brads to connect the layers together.
Finally I wrapped some wire around the brad to act as a stem.
SUPER SUPER easy, and not anything really wild or out of the ordinary.
But adding them with some velvet strawberries and leaves along with a couple of paper flowers makes a cute little bouquet I still have out today.
And better yet, I put them in a mini glass jar that was originally the packaging for some kind of crafty supply. It might been some mini Prima paper flowers or maybe some brads. Either way,its a nice little spring bouquet that never wilts or needs fresh water added to it.
That's all from this New Hampshire winter wonderland.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
