Spring is in the Air Paper Daffodils

Spring Paper Tulips

The days are getting lighter, the bulbs are beginning to flower in the garden and “Spring is in the Air”. One of my favorite flowers are daffodils. They somehow mark the beginning of Spring.

For my Design Team project today, I have made a planter to sit on my kitchen window. I resized the daffodils from the Build a Bouquet : Daffodil cutting file in the Pazzles Craft Room. I have also used the Berry Basket, but deleted the middle aperture sections to create my planter. I used the leaves from the Build A Bouquet : Lily of the Valley and Tulip which I resized to compliment the size of the daffodils, then I inked the edges of all my elements.

I shortened some skewers which were then wrapped with floral tape. The daffodils and leaves were adhered to the skewers using strong adhesive. I added a Dimensional Bow to the front of the box.Spring Paper Tulips

Finally, I Print and Cut the Birds in Nest cutting file to sit amongst the daffodils having watched the latest InVue Print and Cut Basics video tutorial.

Incidentally, I placed some Blue Tac in the base of the planter to give it some weight which also allowed me to stand the skewers and add the reindeer Moss.
