Sisterly Pride - Graduation Bouquet

Ok nothing in this post was made by me, because this post is all about my Oldest Little Sister's (yep, yep I'm the oldest of four) Graduation Bouquet for our niece. May I add, it's totally awesome to have someone else in the family who's loving the Cricut (she even bought a Gypsy).

So, without further ado, the Graduation Bouquet : D.
The cartridges used are Teardrop, Paper Pups, Walk in my Garden and Straight from the Nest. The grass is nestled in a sheet of cardstock and stands at the back of the bouquet against the glass.

One of the dog's has a long flowy tail, so my sister free-handed a tail with scissors with lots and lots of fringe.

The tassel is from Jolee, but the stickers that came with it didn't have any zeros, so my sister had to dig through her stash (this is why we need a stash lol).

This turned out soooo great! My sister used a little tiny rhinestone for the bird's eye.  She totally rocked the cutting of this cage!! So now you can see why I'm so proud of her work (plus all my sisters are awesome people). Leave her some comment love if you can : D.

This is AWESOME. I LOVE that birdcage with the tiny tweeter inside! I'm guessing that cut is from Straight from the Nest??

I love these paper bouquets because they last forever...no wilting flowers dripping dead petals everywhere.

Thanks for sharing!

Yes, the birdcage and some of the flowers are from Straight from the Nest. The flowers that aren't from Straight from the Nest are from Walk in my Garden. The Congrats is from Teardrop.

Thanks for looking : D
