Tissue Flower decorations

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to make some birthday table decorations for the birthday party of my dear friend and instead of having a some vases with flowers, I thought it would be fun to create some tissue flowers that I could set down the the table with some tags with special sentiments to let the birthday girl know how much she is loved :) I used the Small Phrases stamp set from Verve Stamps which has so many lovely sentiments - these four esp. describe my lovely friend - who is fabulous, amazing and so loved by so many! Here is a picture of all 4 favor boxes:

And another picture of the sentiments. I used the Tag Time stamp set from Verve stamps to stamp each of the tags and then stamped a sentiment that I sponged and lined with liquid pearls before adhering onto the tag:

I created a little flower from one sheet of tissue paper (pleating, cutting and then unfolding) and then tied the center with a ribbon that I inserted into the take out favor box from Taylored Expressions.

I tied a little red satin ribbon to either side of the box and then in the middle tied some ribbons that I attached with glue dots to the center of the favor box. Each tag was attached with a  dimensional onto the favor box

It was fun to line these tags up on the birthday table - I love these tissue flowers - they last long after real flowers have wilted and it was fun to make these tags to let the sweet birthday girl know that she is simply fabulous and is simply LoVeD!!!

Project Ingredients:
Stamps: Small Phrases and Tag Time from Verve Stamps
Ink: LadyBug Red and Rich Cocoa from Memento inks
Accessories: glue dots, dimensionals, sponger, tissue paper, satin red ribbon, liquid pearls, red tacky tape, take out boxes from Taylored Expression

My most favorite thing about crafting is creating little things for the people I love - it makes me so happy to create things that makes my dear ones know how loved and treasured they are :) Love all these sentiments - they express my heart sentiments perfectly!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)
