What a fun time I had on Good Things Utah with Neal! He’s a good little helper. I love it when I can combine my children with crafting (Riley chose to go to preschool instead of joining us).
We used the So Sophie Clever collection to create our paper flowers. Tip: This is the vase I used for the Easter Tree last month. It’s a multi-purpose vase! The vase measures 15” high and 6 1/2” on the bottom.
Since the vase is larger than most, these flowers are BIG. The daisy is about 6” across, the California Poppy is 5” and the rose is 4” across. We only had time to show how to make one flower on the show, but I have typed up detailed instructions that also include pictures. All you have to do is click here to download the instructions: Download 2010_04_15_MME_Paper Flower Bouquet.
Later this afternoon, when the video is available, we’ll add the the video to the left column. You can also click here to read the segment on the Good Things Utah website.
My boys think this will make a fun Mother’s Day gift for their grandmas (shhh - it’s a secret!). We are thinking of having the boys write down things they love about their grandmas on the leaves. My boys are excited to create this project. They have a fun time bending, wadding and scrunching paper.
Since there wasn’t a studio audience to bring prizes to, My Mind’s Eye has generously donated a complete So Sophie collection for me to give away HERE! All you have to do is comment on this blog post (or ANY blog post) between NOW and next Thursday, April 22, 2010. I’ll announce the winner on Friday, April 23, 2010. There is also a giveaway on the My Mind’s Eye blog, too.
I hope you enjoy this project!
p.s. Did you see the cool glue gun? Thanks GlueArts!
