Patterned Paper: Bo Bunny Mango Luau
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.
