Valentine’s Day Paper Arrangement

Is it really the end of January already?!  Wow, this new year is flying by!  Before you know it, we will all be working on Christmas decorations, crafts, and gifts.  This is the last Valentines Day post for me.  Of course, I have VDay supplies purchased, but I think time is almost out.  Remember the {Halloween Paper Bouquet}?  Well, my Mom wanted to make something similar for Valentine’s Day.  With the Cricut, we cut out different sizes and shapes of flowers using different patterned paper, and then layered up the flowers with a brad in the center.  Mom’s are hot glued onto shish kabob skewers and mine are hot glued onto sticks. (For some reason, I had been dying to use these sticks cut from King’s Dad’s backyard.)  Two different looks with the same flower.  I think both of them turned out pretty nicely and very festive!  I took my arrangement to the office since I made {THIS} one for the house.  Might even recycle the flowers into my craft room for a decoration  ... they match.

Stopping by from DIY Showoff - Love the bouquet! It's sooo cute! I love to craft, but I'm not so great with paper crafts. Even though I don't have a Cricut, I might give this a shot. Thanks for the cute idea!
