A Jar of Flowers

I woke up last week and decided I wanted to make a flower bouquet in a canning jar.  Here is my result.

Spring Flowers

supplies: wood plank and Doodlebug gingham papers, PTI Friendship jar, flowers from Wplus9's Free-Hand Florals and Fresh Cut Florals, blue sprigs from My Favorite Things Beautiful Blooms, a variety of inks from Hero Arts, Altenew, and Wplus9, PTI tiny tag die and Friendship Jar Spring Fillers, twine, adhesive foam squares

I started by stamping my jar, and then all of the leaves, stems, background flowers and sprigs.  Separately I stamped some of the Free Hand Florals, and cut them out, arranging them just above the rim of the jar and in the center of my bouquet.  I didn't really plan to fussy-cut this, but after I'd stamped it, I thought it looked too plain against just white, so I added some planking and a gingham table cloth to the background and a twine bow and tag that doubles as my sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!
