I was in my local hardware store the other day and spotted the cutest little clay pot you have ever seen – all of 1 1/2 inches tall. It was $2 which almost caused me to pass it up, but I’m glad I was feeling extravagant:
Don’t you love it? I’m not a huge punch-art fan, but I love the flowers you can make with punches. These are made from the 5 petal flower (the pointed one) and the 1 inch and 3/4 inch circles. The tiny pale ones are made with the Bitty Punches, and the leaves are from the XL Two Step Bird punch. I had to put int a few butterflies from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit too. Here’s another view:
I attached the flowers with E-6000 adhesive because it’s super-goopy, and the butterflies and Bitty Punch flowers are held on with straight pins. I wish the little pot had been more reasonably priced, because these would be cute gifts. It really wasn’t fair – the big 4 inch pot sitting next to it was 79 cents! Ah well, I would have driven myself crazy making all those little flowers.
Make a little note on your calendar to check in all next week. I’m participating in my first blog hop and it promises to be full of wonderful inspiration.
