Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Challenge

This is my second post of the day.  Scroll down to see my Operation Write Home midweek challenge post.  Tim Holtz is having a Tattered Floral challenge and the prize is a $100 Tim Holtz goodie bag.  My daughter recently got engaged and as we were wedding gown shopping she saw a beautiful fabric and paper floral wedding bouquet.  She looked at me and said, "You could do that, Mom!"  So here is my first take on the paper flowers to be used in the bouquet.  It is made from vellum and sprayed with Tattered Angels Sugar Plum Fairy mist which made the vellum curl up much like flower petals.  I found the pearl center in the floral section of Michael's along with the floral supplies to make the stem.  My daughter has great faith in my crafting skills.  Hopefully I can live up to the hype!

Happy Crafting!

  1. The flower is lovely, I am sure you will do well, a suggestion depending on the style of bouquet she wants I would get some florists foam or a foam ball to stick the flowers through for your shape :) it will make it that much easier and less frustrating,

    I really do love the flower its so pretty I hope we get to see the finished bouquet.

  2. This flower is gorgeous. You are blessed that your daughter wants something "homemade" as part of her wedding. Can't wait to see the final bouquet. :)

  3. Hi Donna, this is a gorgeous flower, great idea to use vellum Cathy x
