Jessica- Boot Camp

Patterned Paper:  Bo Bunny Mango Luau
Cardstock:  Bazzill
Alphabet Stickers:  Bo Bunny
Bo Bunny Mango Luau Buttons and Bling
Ribbon:  American Crafts

The flowers are made by cutting various sized circles.  First fold the circle into quarters.  Using the two bottom quatrants, fold upwards, making a petal shape.  Flip the circle to the other side.  Folding the same bottom quadrants, fold the petal inward towards the middle.  It is kind of like folding  a paper airplane.  Use curled pieces of thin cardstock for the middles.  Handcut stems from cardstock and make an arrangement of your folded flowers and tie a ribbon around it.  I stuck a pin I received from the US Army after my husband graduated from Boot Camp which says "Army Spouse."  I've accumulated a few of these over the years and thought it would be an appropriate way to use one.  The background is simple; various sized patterned paper squares layered over one another, fitted on top of a scalloped piece of Bazzill paper.
