Mother's Day Crepe Paper Flower


This is an extension of my previous post on Crepe Paper Flower Corsage. Since Mother's Day is a fews days away when I made the corsage, and while my supplies are out, might as well create more. For these flowers, I use an 9" 18-gauge floral wire to give it a long stem look. Otherwise, I created these flowers using the same procedure I used in the Crepe Paper Flower Corsage.

The tag is a die.cut using Paper Smooches Gift Tags 3 die. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn Mom + Me stamp set. I heat embossed the stamp mom three times with Hero Arts White embossing powder to give it a puffed look. I inked the edges of the tag using Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress ink. I added a few gold flower sequins and put gold Nuvo drops to the center to cover the sequin hold. I attached this to the flower stem with a twine.

I gave these flowers to the three moms working the night shift with me. I wish I could have made more to give to moms of both shifts but I did not get to making more. I'll try again next year.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
