Money Bouquets


After many days of thinking and searching through the web, I finally finished with the 3 money bouquets, yay! To make the long story short, here is what I have.

I found this bouquet from google that I really like

Then after many trips to Joann Fabric and Micheal's Art & Crafts, this is what I came up with.

 I know not very impressive but that was the start.  I made each flower like that then I put the 9 flowers together and this is what I had

Here is the hand tie

I made the 3 bouquets the same except I used one color for each bouquet.

Here is the gold one

Here is the red one

These are the pix (I think that what they were called) that I used for the 3 bouquets.  I got these from Micheal's art and crafts in 3 different colors.  The evergreen, not in the photo, were from my poor artificial Christmas tree that was stuck in the basement for a few years now.

The bouquets looked much better in person.  I knew I'd said that many times.  I am sure  many of you understand what I meant.  It was very hard for me to take pictures of 3D object especially in a small space that I have.

I really like how the bouquets turned out but I was a little concerned  that Eileen might not like it.  I delivered to her the other day and as soon as she opened the door and saw the bouquets she loved them!  and of course I was very happy.

Can you picture that money bouquet for up coming Valentine's Day and Mother's Day? Oh, I can't wait to make them! That is how my brain is working.  Always thinking.......about what to create next but for everything else I take it one day at a time.  :)

Thank you so much for visiting and for your lovely comments.  Wishing you all a Happy Holiday!
