Flower Arrangement


Good Morning Everyone!  Today is my first post for being on The Bugbytes Design Team. I was very honored when Pam asked me to join in! TY so much Pam for having me!

Today I have to share with you a cute flower arrangement I made to display on my front porch.


 I had saved some oatmeal containers because I had seen a project in a magazine for Valentine's day using them. Well I never got around to using them in February so I brainstormed another way to use them. I had been wanting to put a cute decoration on our front covered porch so I decided to use it to make it.

I covered it in paper. And filled half way with Kitty Litter.

Created my cut outs in the Cricut Craft Room.
 

The flowers were cut from the Cricut Cartridge Accent Essentials.
The Butterfly is from the digital Cricut Basics in the craft room.
Flowers cut at 3. Butterfly at 2.25.

Here is my paper button buttons I chose to use

I painted some white dowels with brown ink.


Assembled all of my pieces

I arranged each flower into the kitty litter ( holds the sticks up great ) and then filled it the rest of the way  with shredded paper. Tied ribbon and hemp around top and added butterfly.


Thank you so much for looking:) Hugs!
