Paper is a fantastic medium for creating quick and easy projects. I've chosen to use pastel colored card stock to make this cheerful Spring topiary.
For this project, I am using a 1-1/4" 6-petal flower punch and a 5/8" circle punch. This is the perfect opportunity to use up those scrap pieces of card stock that you have laying around. Punch out as many as you think you will need for this project.
Glue the circles to the center of each flower. Cut a slit into the center between two petals. Overlap the petals, one over the other, and glue into place.
You will also need straight pins and pearls for this project.
Place a pearl onto a straight pin and pass the pin through the center of each flower.
Aren't they pretty? It looks like sweet sherbety goodness to me!
Cover the styrofoam base by wrapping it with strips of fabric 1" in width. Secure the fabric into place with straight pins.
Arrange the flowers onto the base by pressing the pins into the styrofoam.
This is a very satisfying project that looks very labor intensive, but it's not. If you don't tell, I won't!
