This gift just evolved late one evening as I was rushing (again) to finish it in time for its delightful recipient the following day.
Each of the papier pieces was made as double-sided unit. There were two different sizes of scalloped circles, a "funky" rosette and various sized balloons. Florist wire was used for the stems, some of the pieces were curled around a copic marker to give them fluidity. A piece of oasis was embedded into the bottom of the pot and then shredded tissue paper was used to hide the oasis.
The rosette (which was made from a 30 x 3cm piece of scrapbooking papier) was cut along one edge with zigzag scissors to create a more decorative finish.
Aside from the rosette, all of the pieces were cut out using the Bosskut Gazelle diecutter.
Her reaction: priceless.
