How "Sweet" is This!

Who doesn’t like an occasional bouquet of flowers? It’s that thoughtful gift that makes someone feel extra special. This project adds a little extra sweetness to the idea...a truly edible bouquet.

Supplies: an old can, chipboard alphabet container or other cylinder pkg.; a sheet of patterned paper; floral brads; See-D’s Starter Package (stamped flowers); 4 ink pads (to coordinate with paper and CS); 3 solid colored sheets of cardstock; Sizzix Bigz™ Build-A-Flower die; Sizzix Big Kick;Glue Arts™ High-Tack Micro Adhesive Squares; Stampin’ Dimensionals™ (double sided foam adhesive); scissors; crinkle confetti; coordinating ribbon and pixie sticks.

Use the sizzix diecutter to cut the outer shapes, stamp the floral shapes on patterned paper and build these flowers using a dimensional adhesive to raise up the center circles with brad centers. Sandwich the pixie stick between the flowers using high-tack micro adhesive squares from Glue Arts.
Stamp and decorate the container, add flowers and crinkle paper filler to complete. This makes a cheery get well wish or surprise birthday bouquet.
