Flower Tree

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

Looking to make a fabulously springy craft but don't have a lot of time?  Try making this adorable Flower Tree!  This flower tree was made using the Mother's Day Bouquet Cricut cartridge, some bright springy paper, colorful brads, a foam ball, a small pot, and the new paper mache eggs from Petersen Arne!



Glitter always makes a project more noticeable.  We covered the foam ball with our favorite glitter to get that extra pop!
Simply spray the ball with adhesive and dust on the glitter. It may take a couple coats, but the end product is dazzling!


 

Aren't these flowers just adorable?  Cut the different shaped flowers out of the Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge in your favorite paper.  Layer them on top of each other and push a fun-colored brad through the middle to hold them together.  Layering the different colored papers is a great way to add fun dimension to your project. 


 

Attach the flowers to the foam ball either by pushing the brads into the foam or adhering the flower to the ball with your favorite glue adhesive. Tip: Try placing the flowers where you'd like them to sit on the foam ball before adhering.  That way you get an even look all the way around!


 

Don't like dying eggs at Easter time? Try using paper mache eggs! The pre-made eggs from Petersen-Arne are perfect for covering with your favorite paper to make your Easter decorations just that much cuter. Simply cover the eggs with glue (we'd recommend Hodge Podge) and then cover with paper.  It may take several coats to cover the eggs completely but the results are egg-specially cute!


Happy crafting!
