Floral Heart Vase

A fun project you can make for a special girlfriend or any lady in your life! I made the flowers from the heart stamp in the January Monthly Mix from Lizzie Anne:

Heart Florals Vase2

You'll need floral wire, green floral tape, a glass vase, some ribbon, some assorted notepapers for the tiny enclosure card, markers, twine, and decorative stick pins.

What's also fun about this project, is you can stash goodies at the bottom of the vase. Anything you desire.....some chocolate candies, a little piece of jewelry, or a secret note. Put in some wonderful bath soaps, or tuck in some faux pearls as an accent. Just have fun with it! :)

So didn't I tell you I have more birthdays coming up? I won't bore you with too many gift wrappings, but here's another quick one I finished up today. It was sooo hot today in our area, that I was really in the mood for something fun, super bright, and something that definitely reminded me of spring!

Spring Bouquet

Even though this gift is for a 2 yr. old baby girl, I just wasn't in the mood for a baby theme....really, I wasn't. Sometimes, you just get tired of wrapping baby gifts in all pink and blue, so I needed something different, but something that still says GIRLY and HAPPY! :)

My favorite is the orange mixed in with bright chartreuse and light yellow, I, once, was not a big fan of orange, but it has really grown on me!

Have a great day! I'll see you all next week!

My goodness, Tif, you just put me to shame. I have a hard time remembering birthdays, let alone creating the beautiful wrappings and all. That vase of heart flowers is amazing, too! Perfect time for some hearts and flowers.
Hope your cold is easing up a bit......and didn't we have lovely weather today?
