I'm always looking for new ideas on what to make or buy for Akemi's ballet performances. We normally go 2 nights and I usually pick up fresh flowers for one of the nights. The second night she might get a lei or whatever I'm into at the moment. Recently, I got this new Spellbinder flower die set and I just love it! Had some leftover leaves and floral wire, so I whipped up these paper flowers in about an hour. The paper I used was Doodlebug and they are two sided, so just flipped the middle flower to the other side for contrast. I like it since its still in the same color, so it matches perfectly. Then added heart buttons found in one of the button packs from Ben Franklin, Luckily I was able to find enough for the whole bouquet. I think the heart buttons add something cute an fun to the flower.
Ok, please don't judge but I pulled this out of a bag that had been sitting overnight, so my bow is all mangled! It looked nice when I first gave it to her, but you know how it goes after the event...
Here's a close up of the flowers.
If anyone has good ideas for next year's performance I would love to hear it!
