Border Flowers

I'm still working on more flowers for the flower swap in which I'm participating.
This time I wanted something a little different.

So what can you do with this:

tacky glue
Martha Stewart border punch
Liquid Glass
little Prima flowers

First: Start by using the Martha Stewart border punch to create this lovely border

Second: Trim away portion of the border, as you like, to create a floral vine

Third: Using the larger of the little Prima flowers, adhere to the punch on top of the flowers already there

Repeat with alternating colors

Fourth: using the smaller of the little Prima flowers, adhere them by layering them, again alternating colors

Finish by adhering small rhinestones to the centers

All five finished floral vines:

You can also use Stickles or Skittles or any other bling of your choice.

Since there were 6 flowers on each vine, this was going to be my third submission for the swap, but it just wasn't enough. Come back tomorrow to see what I made to go with this vine, and soon I'll post a picture of each finished flower set for the swap.


  1. Wow! That's really thinkin' outside the box! LOVE it!! I'm now a follower. Looking forward to seeing what other neat ideas you come up w/! :-)

  2. Hi Amy, very creative! I have packages of those mini flowers that I have been hoarding for years! :) I may have to break them out!
