Flower Centerpieces

OK, Part 4 of the wedding projects.  I was REALLY happy with how these small centerpieces turned out.  I knew the tables at the Rehearsal dinner would be full with dishes, so I wanted something fairly small and compact.  The dishes measure 8" square and 2 1/2" high.  I combined a couple different Scallop Circle flower ideas I've done in the past, with a little of the one that Lee Conrey showed me.  I wanted mine to lay flat and have small center petals so I could add the Pumpkin Pie color.  They really are gorgeous in person!  Don't worry, I have a class coming up SOON where we will be making several DIFFERENT types of paper flowers!  Mark your calendar for September 16th!


BUT…how about this…I have several of these flowers made.  If you want one of my paper flowers with the instructions on how I made mine…I'll send one to you FREE with a $40 online or email order!  Click here to visit my online website! 



I found the square dish bowls at the local H**L** store…they actually are acrylic but look like glass!  I filled the bottom with the white, clear and frosted florist marbles…so bridal looking!  On top, I made the flower from Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie cardstock and the Flower Folds XL Die and Fancy Flower Punch with a Clear Rhinestone Brad in the center.  I used Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz over the flower to make it shimmery!  I added a couple Old Olive leaves and used the Smooch Spritz on them, too.



Here is a look at some of them sitting on my table and ready to go!




I'll be showing off another way I used one of these flowers a little later next week!


So…don't forget!  If you want one of my paper flowers with my instructions, place your $40 online or email order today!  While supplies last!
