With 75 degree weather up here in NorCal, it feels like winter has been cut short and spring has arrived already. It was H-O-T today; so hot, the air conditioning was on in our office. I’ll admit, I’m a bit worried, especially with California’s drought situation going on. We’re overdue for a good rainy season. Also, my girlfriends and I are going snowboarding in a few weeks. How will we snowboard without the snow?
In any case, I have a spring project to share today. It’s a cute little paper vase with a flower! I wanted to fill the pot with with green jellybeans to resemble grass, but alas, I had none on hand. Lined with some sweet green yummies, wouldn’t this make an adorable wedding or bridal shower favor?
I had some time, so I created a PDF template of the flower pot box for anyone who wants to make this project. The felt flower was cut from a Big Shot die called Flower Layers and it’s adhered onto a cookie stick from Michaels using glue dots.
