Last week my preschooler came home with the cutest upcycled basket of easter grass - but, me being me, I just had to do something more with it:
I love the simplicity of the original preschool project - strawberry basket, pipecleaner, wax paper, soil and grass seeds! My woven ribbon and handmade flower additions are almost as easy to throw together.
Handmade Easter Flower "Tutorial":
(These simple notes should suffice, but let me know if you need more help!)
- The Base layer for this flower is a simple 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch. To give the shape more texture, I roughly snipped between each scallop to about 1/4" from the center of the circle - some snips went deeper than others, it was all rough cutting. Once the petals were created I bent each petal in half into a valley fold for depth.
- The next layer is a 3/4" Circle Punch also roughly snipped and folded.
- The final layer is a single flower form our 5/8" Flower Trim - yes, I'm using every last flower from the 2 yd package!
- Attach all layers with a simple gold brad.
This flower came together very quickly and adds a little spring charm to an already cute upcycled project! It could just as easily be added to a card or any other spring project, but it wouldn't be the same without the flower trim. Buy yours today - click here! to start shopping.
