Big Giant Flowers & Video

Aren't these flowers beautiful?  I just love them! 
I've been making them for years for weddings and events, everything from arches, to walls and the backs of chairs.  Since big flowers are back in vogue and are seen everywhere again, I decided to make this swag for a door prize for our Inking Idaho on the Road event last March.
 

I purchased the vine and attached the flowers to it with wire.  The small flowers are made with the Bouquet Bigz Die that is now retired from Stampin' Up!.

 
Debbie Ware was the winner of the swag at the event.  This is a pretty good picture for you to judge the size of the flowers.
 
 
My downline really liked the flowers and so we decided that we would make them at our team meeting last month....and I was busy helping them and didn't get one single picture of the mass glue gun operation we had in my house!

 
This is the flower we made in any color cardstock they wanted.  The pattern for the flower can be found HERE. and just for all of you, I made a video on how to assemble them!

  2. Debbie it takes 10-11 sheets of 8-1/2" x 11" cardstock. Totally worth it! :)

  13. Tzivia, I hung mine on a vine, you could do that or simply cut a giant leaf or two out of cardstock and glue behind it so it hangs out a bit. To hang them, cut a piece of heavy poster board into a circle. Punch 2 holes in it. Thread a wire or hook through the holes and hot glue the circle to the back. Now you have a hanger or handles to anchor it to pretty much anything.

  14. Becky your flowers are stunning! Thank you for the template and the video, I'm excited to make a few to hang up once I finish unpacking all of my crafting supplies. The vine you made for the Inking Idaho raffle is beautiful - Debbie is a lucky lady :)
