JAS Spring Fling!

Anything goes at JAS - make a card, LO, or project using spring colors of anything that you please-so I wanted to make this:



I used the Walk in My Garden cartridge to make the tulip borders that go all around the bucket. The butterflies and tools are also cut with the same cart. I put the wire on the back of the cuts, and glued oval shaped pieces of paper over it. Wind the wire around a pencil to make the coils. Floral Foam is on the bottom of the bucket to support a plant. I wound the bottom inch of wire around a toothpick to stick into the foam. The seed packets (they are real!) are mounted onto the cardstock which was glued to paint stirring sticks. I also added lavender & purple buttons around the bucket. Tie ribbon around the top of the bucket.

I gotta make one more of these for Mother's Day!
