My project today is a paper flower arrangement. I thought these flowers were fun to make. I chose pink and purple because those are Susan's favorite colors.

I stuck them in this cute gift bag because it was pink and purple with flowers and I think it goes perfectly with the flowers. Here is a close up of flower #1

I used these super cute metal brads as the centers of most of the flowers. And one thing I learned is to handle them quickly as I hot glued them on and they get HOT! And this is flower # 2:
And of course I'm giving away some blog candy! This stamp set. Yes, I know it's not mounted yet, but hey, it's never been used.=)
