IMG_0339Hi Everyone! My sister Karla's wedding rehersal is tomorrow and I got this inspiration late last night. Here's a bridal bouquet for her to hold during the

rehersal ceremony. Hopefully, she loves it as much as much as I do…and her! This would also be perfect for a bridal shower! Most items are made using the Big Shot and dies. Punch flowers are fillers.

With Whisper White card stock, die cut 2 petal cones. Stamp and run through Fancy Fan folder. Adhere sides to make cone with Tombo. Fill cone with tissue paper or other filler and close top. The circle sticky strips make an awesome adhesive layer! apply one to the top. Lay strips of ribbon using the sticky circle to keep in place. layer another circle to start adding flowers.

The scallop flowers are the flowers I've made before with punches. Just bigger! Make a carnation type of flower as well as the rosette flower usine this die. With circle or scallop punches, make smaller filler flowers.
 
Here's how to make the rosettes. AND  here to make carnations.

for the carnations – use a small brad and really swish forward aroung it.

With Scallop Circle and Fun Flower Dies – make a variety of flowers in different tones. Use the suede technique – crinkle the paper by scrunching up in your hand until the fibers are really broken down.  PEEL apart the paper – it's 2-ply..make 1 ply and use the rough or suede looking side up.

Adhere 1 flower in center. This will be a base flower to build around. Arrange larger flowers first and fill in with smaller. I used Tombo to glue flowers.

Tip! if you feel your bouquet is 'lopsided' – remember it's paper! you can gently squish the bouquet into a rounded shape.

With Crumb Cake ink, stamp butterfly image twice on whisper white and punch out using the Elegant Butterfly punch. Punch two butterflies out of both very vanilla and crumb cake. Layer by adhering only down the middle so you can bend wings upward. Apply pearls. Adhere to bouquet using glue dots.
