Everlasting Bouquet

Flowers that won't wilt!  What a wonderful gift these would make.  That's just what I have done. I made these to be used as a teacher thank you gift. They would also make a great Mother's Day gift.

Even cooler - they are actually pens.  Imagine how chic these will look sitting on a desk, and they are functional too! Now imagine them done in the Brides colors along with a box of thank you notes, wouldn't that be a sweet shower gift?

I made these using papers from the DigiChick collab kit Wishes, Hopes and Dreams.  This was a fun project as I got to use a few different materials and techniques. There's some oragami folding in there, along with bling, ribbon, lace, wet-paper scrunching, and fancy cutting.  There's even some kidney beans too!

I also made these for the Shabby Tea Room challenge this week.
This weeks challenge was to create something using the above photo as inspiration.  Aren't those colors just yummy?

Want to make some yourself?  I'm sharing the tutorial over at The Hybrid Chick today.

After I typed the title for this post, I keep thinking of Willy Wonka and the Everlasting Gobstoppers! hehehehe!
