Crate of Daisies

Good Morning! OH MY it's so nice and cool this morning! I'm up early posting...skipping spin class because I'm headed down the mountain to go grocery shopping and to the orthodontist before it gets SUPER hot! Redding gets SO HOT...and it doesn't cool off at night on those REALLY HOT days. That's something I love about our little mountain town...it almost always cools off into the high 50's low 60's. I don't sleep well when it's super hot so I open up and it's wonderful!!

Before I head down, I wanted to share a project that I worked on yesterday! I LOVE daisies...especially GERBER daisies...so today's project is a daisy project! I hope you like it!

This project was created using the Wood Crate framelits, the Daisy Punch, the Lemon Builder Punch and the Paisley Framelits, the Seasonal Layer's Thinlits, the Seaside and Softly Falling Embossing folders and the 3/4" Circle Punch.  The colors I chose are Marina Mist, Whisper White, Crushed Curry and Lemon Lime Twist.

I cut out for wood crates and attached them vertically to make the crate taller. I stamped the Marina Mist crate using the Hardwood background stamp before putting it together. I filled it with floral foam with mossy twine on top.  Next I made my daisies.  Of course I used my Daisy Punch to cut out eight daisies, but I used THICK Whisper White cardstock to make them sturdier!  I adhered one on top of the other then used my bone folder to curl them backwards. For the center of the crate flowers I used a flower from the Seasonal and a Glitter Enamel Dot.  For the magnet (in the top left corner) I used a circle cut with the 3/4" Circle Punch. It is embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. This is my favorite way to do flower centers, especially for cards because it's flat!

I attached the flowers to a pipe cleaner that is inside of a plastic tube using my glue gun (a brilliant idea from a class I use to attend). This is where I used the Paisley Framelits to make it truly look like the back of a flower. The leaves are punched with the Lemon Builder Punch and embossed with the Seaside Embossing Folder.



To finish it off I tied some Burlap Ribbon into a bow around the crate. Next I tied Crushed Curry Baker's Twine around the burlap bow. I wanted to add a wooden embellishment, but remembered I hadn't ordered them yet! That's on today's list to do! 

This was a really FUN project and only took about 30 minutes to complete. Now I need a card to match and it would make a sweet gift! ANOTHER PROJECT!

HEY...THANKS BUNCHES for stopping by today!  Have a FANTASTIC FRIDAY and ENJOY your weekend! Don't forget to find time to CREATE!!
