I have something a little bit different to show you today.
I made this for Crafty Emma, whos gorgeous baby daughter, Olivia Roni Britton,
arrrived on October 23rd.
When it comes to making things like this I am all fingers and thumbs,
but I persevered with this and I'm happy with the way it turned out.
Just as tricky was getting a good photo of it!! :-)
The bouquet is made up of Baby Grows and socks, with some artificial flowers and leaves added in and I got the idea from this Martha Stewart video.
The baby clothes are rolled up and then attached to some florists wire with florists tape.
Florists tape is a must - I found it really difficult to use because it only sticks to itself, but this is so that you don't get any tacky residue on the baby clothes.
The picture below shoes a bloom made with a single baby sock.
I love how the lacey edge looks.
And here's a pink Baby Grow - when rolled up and folded in the centre this gives you a double bloom!!
Despite my struggles, I really loved making this and would definitely try it again.But if you want to see some really gorgeous versions, just google 'baby grow bouquet' and check out the images.
Don't forget that over at CES we are in the second week of our 'New Beginnings' challenge.
Your card/project doesn't have to be new baby, it can be new home, new job.. etc.
