Jazzy's Christmas In July Blog Hop!! A Christmas Bouquet


Welcome to "Jazzy's Christmas in July" Blog Hop hosted by Jazzy from Jazzy's Cards. If you are coming from Jazzy's blog, then you are in the right place, but if you are just checking on my blog and stumbled across this, please head back HERE to start at the beginning. This is Jazzy's first time hosting a hop, and I know she would appreciate the love. :)

The theme for this hop was something Christmas related that included the colors green and red. This is what I came up with....
 A Christmas bouquet...  Perfect as a table decoration, and perfect as a gift!! :)
 The rosettes were made with 12" strips of  paper, scored and folded at 1/4" increments.  Paper widths for each rosette were as follows: 1.5" for the red, 1.625" for the striped and 1.75" for the green.  I punched a 3/4" circle of green embossed cardstock for the center (this covers the glue used at the center of the rosette).  I stitched the criss-cross through the button holes, but attached the buttons with a glue dot.
 A smaller rosette (3/4"x12" strip of green paper) with a button center, two handmade stick pins, a snip of gathered ribbon, and a handwritten paper strip adorn the embossed gift tag...
Green glass accents beads (found them on clearance at Wally-World, but I've seen similar in most craft stores and dollar stores) fill an up-cycled glass jar as the base of my bouquet.

Now...  Before I send you off to your next stop on the hop...  What's a hop without some CANDY???  I have a collection of Christmas Card-making supplies to send out to one fabulous winner!! :)

Vicki said...

What a fun centerpiece!! So bright and colorful!
My favorite gift memory is the "Tammy" doll instead of a "barbie" Mom wrapped three shoe boxes, the first had one of those plastic dollar store fake Barbies and the second had lots of clothes..She had told me she may not be able to get the Tammy doll..I was so sad until I opened the third shoe box and there she was !!!

Love the bouquet, it is very cute! I want a new office chair for Christmas, at this time. My Birthday is next month, so I might get it for that then I will pick something else for Christmas. LOL

Thanks for the drawing, can always use more supplies to make OWH cards.

Hello again! I just finished Day 4 on the other hop and have now started this one. This bouquet is gorgeous! What a beautiful centerpiece it would make. Thanks for sharing so many wonderful Christmas ideas. I have either an Imagine or E2 on my wish list but I won't get either of those so I'll include a couple of the new Cricut carts and some new MS punches.

Merry Christmas!
