About to bloom

Sharing a different kind of craft today, a teacup posy featuring a bunch of foamiran peonies I made.

I made this as a gift for a friend for her birthday.  I wasn’t sure what kind of flowers to make, just knew I wanted to make a posy of foamiran flowers but the photo inspiration at Just Us Girls looked like a peony and I had a tutorial bookmarked for foamiran peonies so went with them.  I hand cut all of the flowers and leaves, I just made myself a template from acetate, as I didn’t have any dies.  Each one is also individually coloured to give the flowers a tone toned and more realistic look.  It all took the better part of Sunday but I think it was worth it as they are really pretty and realistic to look at.

Over at Southern Girls they’re looking for flower projects so I am linking up my posy there.  At Always Fun they want to see anything but a card so am also entering their challenge with my very non-card creation.
