Flower Pot

Wow! Can you believe that it is already the middle of of January? I have to say I am enjoying the temperate weather in Northern Florida. Soon it will be spring and flowers will be blooming all around. For my Magnolia Forever DT challenge "Blue" I decided to create this flower pot with Tilda in the Garden. She is too adorable.

Here is how I created my project. I purchased the paper mache flower pot in Michaels. I sprayed the pot with Prima Bloom Spray. To create the butterfly and dragon fly sticks I used straws that I covered with Tim Holtz tissue tape and add a pearl to the top of each one. The inside of the pot was filled with these beautiful blue and white flowers. I used Magnolia large butterfly, butterfly and dragon fly doohickey dies. The other butterfly die is from Memory Box. I added trim, butterflies, seed packets and Tilda to the outside design of the flower pot.

I hope I inspired you today to create something.  Thanks for stopping by!
