Fun Flowers

26 Mar

I just had to share what I made for the Bedford Area Master Gardeners’ — — spring seminars, held this past Saturday. All of the committee members wore them on their nametags so they’d stand out from the crowd…it worked! The committee loved them…and so did everybody else!

They’re made with fun foam. Can you believe it? I love that I can cut fun foam, wood, fabric, vinyl, cork, and more with my Big Shot dies. Talk about getting your money’s worth. And it was so daggone quick and easy to make these pretty little things!

I just ran sheets of fun foam through the Big Shot, one at a time, of course, using the Fun Flowers Bigz L Die. I used a couple of different shades of pink and yellow, as well as purple and orange, fun foam. Then I mixed and matched the colors to create the flowers you see. Each layer is popped up with several Stampin’ Dimensionals but the fun foam is adhesive-backed so you could peel off the backing and stick them together, if you wanted. I added a Brights Button (available FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration), laced with Lucky Limeade Baker’s Twine (available in the Occasions Mini Catalog until 4/30/12), to each flower, and attached it with a Glue Dot.

These could be made into pins or magnets or package toppers or hair bows or decorations for a nursery or a little girl’s room!

For my purposes, I used a colored paper clip to attach the flower to the name tag. What do you think? Aren’t these flowers fun?

    How fun is this! Love the idea of putting a paper clip on the back to add to your name tag!
