I can’t tell you how proud I was of my first few flowers!I won’t lie….10 hours later, my bouquet was done. Now, before you rule out making one yourself, let me share my experience.
Yes, it took awhile but the final product was worth it! SO pretty! This is not a ‘quickie’ and it’s not something you make in one sitting but it is something you will enjoy. Just take an evening to make up one set of the flowers, maybe two. Another day, make up another set.
More than anything, I want to recommend you make it with a friend. Brenda and I had SO much fun and we helped each other along. We laughed a lot (and threw the floral tape across the room. Man, I hate that stuff.)
In the end, my final bouquet tired out AHHHHMAZING! Which is just what I needed because the snow is blowing like crazy today.
Brenda and I learned A LOT of things as we created this bouquet. We are going to work on a tutorial to share with you what we learned. Tips to make the project go together easier and faster. We want you to learn from our mistakes. You’re welcome.
Hmm, are you dying to make one or are you still a little nervous? Give it a try! Invite a friend over, have LOTS of coffee ready, and give it a go! Here’s a list of what we used on our bouquet. If you don’t have the Build A Bouquet stamp set, you can use Gorgeous Grunge too!
Use what you have, ORDER what you need.
I hope you’ll give this beautiful bouquet a try. It is TRULY amazing! And hey, right now you can earn Sale-a-Bration freebies with your order of $50 or more (before tax/ship). Sweet!
I have just a couple more days with Brenda here so we’re going to get back to crafting. If it’s a little quiet on the blog, just know that I am busy busy busy creating fabulous stuff to share with you later in the week. Oh! And guess what?! We have designed the most coolest project EVAH for the March “Let’s Get Creative” tutorial. It’s my favorite one yet! I can’t wait for March 1st to share it with you.
