I have something very special to share with you today.. I love making my own paper flowers using dies from Heartfelt Creations and Amazing Paper Grace. But sometimes the flowers are really bulky and will not fit into the clear dimensional boxes from Heartfelt Creations. So I came across this 3D Pillar Display design from Mixed Up Crafts and it was perfect for showcasing the floral bouquet that I had made. I adapted the card to make the pillars deeper as my flowers were very dimensional – the sides are 1 1/2″ deep as opposed to 1″ deep. And I also put in a little box at the base of the card to hide the ends of the bouquet of flowers and added some moss in it. I love this sentiment that I used as it is so versatile and the card can fit so many different occasions.

I have taken a class from my fellow Design Team member Rajni Chawla on how to create several different types of Sweet Peas and I was thrilled with how my sweet peas turned out. She also taught us how to create a bouquet using florist wire and tape and this was my first bouquet that I made.
Because this card was bulky I created a box to put the card in. I again used a pattern from Mixed Up Crafts and decorated it with dies from Heartfelt Creations and embossing from Amazing Paper Grace. Once again I adapted the box to make it deeper – The bottom of the box is now 1 1/2″ deep instead of 1″.
