Evergreen Bouquet

Hello Everyone :)
My today's project is inspired by this month's Hobby Mela's Challenge, where the theme is on Bouquet Arrangement.
So here is my Evergreen Bouquet which is completely handmade!!

Evergreen Bouquet

I started with the basket first, which is made up of cardboard planks. Glued them together to form a basket & covered it with large pieces of textured paper bits (sky blue colour). Then did some sponging in some areas using green ink. Finally added a border of thin fibre rope at the base of the basket. Using aluminium wire made an arch above the basket & covered it with green floral tape.

For the yellow flowers on arch, I die cut few paper flowers, inked their edges using red ink and emboss around the edge of the petal to give it a nice shape. Then layered up two flowers to give it some puffy look & added a punch craft shape at the centre. Leaves are all hand cut & inked. Arranged all the flowers & leaves on a thin copper wire covered with floral tape and wrapped the wire on the arch.

For the Purple cala lilies I cut few hearts of foam sheet. For the centre I wrapped some cotton on the wire & covered it with orange glue then sprinkled some fine thermocol over it. Then placed the wire on the inverted heart & glued it using fevi kwick giving it a nice shape.

Purple-pink flowers on the other side of the arch are also made with foam sheet (purple portion) & crepe paper (pink portion & yellow fringe).

Small blue and yellow blooms & white flowers are made up of crepe paper.

For the pink lilies visit this link on my blog for complete tutorial

For the chocolates I wrapped them in red shimmery wrapping paper added some golden fringe around it & a small green paper base, then stuck it onto the wire to make stem.

Finally added some long paper leaves at the back of the bouquet, and few smaller ones near blue blooms. Then tied a ribbon and a small bird on the arch & glued a butterfly on the flower. Added two long stems with pearls & pink roses at the back which are made up of organdie fabric.  

Hope you like it!! Do tell me how it is :)
Thanks for visiting!!
Have a wonderful day!!
