Flowers for You

I have two projects to show you today that I made a few weeks ago and haven't yet shared. I saw these flower pot photo holders on a blog somewhere at least a year ago (if you have any idea who it might have been, please let me know!). It is a project that I have made a few times, as they make great gifts for moms (or sister-in-laws with lots of baby pictures :)

I made this one for my MIL for Mother's Day. The flowers are double-sided, adhered together and to the wire using glue dots. Here's a close-up of the card - like when a little card is included in a florist bouquet (all the details are below in the Recipe).

I made this flower pot for my SIL for her birthday. She has an adorable little girl, whose pictures would just look great in here. Beautiful Blooms is one of my all-time favorite PTI sets. It is so versatile.

This one was even easier to make, as I cut out all the flowers using the Cuttlebug. The leaves are from Stampin' Up!'s Little Leaves Sizzlit. And another close-up:

Tonight hubby and I are going out for sushi (yum!) to celebrate his new job. We used to own a pet store, which we sold in January. He's been job hunting since then and finally found something. I consider us to be very lucky given the state of the economy. Hopefully it all works out - but it is certainly cause for celebration!

I hope you have a great evening, too!

  1. Very nice, Anya! Enjoy your sushi and celebrate! My favorite is tuna nigiri!

  2. These are really great! What a nice gift idea!! Congrats on the new job, I hope you enjoyed the sushi. I'm not a fan but my 1st grader loves it - especially spicy tuna rolls. Weird. And congrats to your Pens -- I'm a Tampa Bay Lightning fan, they are terrible :D


Thank you for stopping by - I love to hear from you!
