Flower Frame

This pretty flower frame was a last minute make for my Sister's birthday a couple of weeks ago.  I really needed a glue gun - but mine is no where to be found???????  I now have a nice new one sitting in a box on my desk - I'm sure the old glue gun will turn up just as soon as I have used the new one?!

I used a 6 x 6 box frame to put my flowers in, covering the back of the frame with some Wisteria Wonder paper.  The flowers are made from two different tutorials I bought here from A Diary of Two Crafty Girls.
I was intrigued by the pine cone in the Elegant Holiday Bouquet, I knew I "needed" to find out how it was made, the tutorials are excellent with a lot of step by step photos and tips to make your creations look real.

I also bought the beautiful Summer Bouquet tutorial, I made the anemone and ranunculus flowers from this one and it was also my inspiration for the colours too. The flowers are made using a lot of different Stampin' Up! punches and card many of the edges have been lightly sponged with ink, then I gave the flowers a spritz of shimmer mist made with Platinum shimmer paint & rubbing alcohol.

I hope to make a start on the Christmas bouquet now I have my glue gun!! I think they will make lovely gifts at Christmas, I have been making a start on some Christmas projects this week as I want to try not to be last minute with everything this year?!

The bouquet of flowers are absolutely gorgeous! I'm sure with the shimmer they are even more wonderful in real life!
