Floral Frenzy

Good morning everyone. We have a new challenge starting for you this week at the Polkadoodles challenge blog, and that is
Floral Frenzy

And here is my make.
 I have used the fabulous Lavender Tea download collection again, yep I really do love it.
This is a milk bottle from Ikea that I wanted to upcycle into some home decor. 
I just printed lots and lots of flowers and butterflies and 2 word toppers onto glossy photo paper. I cut them all out, gave them some form and layered them up. I then cut drinking straws to different lengths and glued the flowers and butterflies on them, on both sides of the straws so it looks good from the back too. I put the 2 message toppers onto the tallest straw so that it would stand out. I then printed some papers and cut strip to wrap around the base of the bottle. I inked the edges and added some faux stitching to the top two pieces. I then added some more butterflies and flowers to the outside of the bottle and finished it off with some silver ribbon and a matching bow.
This is a great idea to give to someone who is in hospital or someone who loves flowers but doesn't have them in the house due to allergies.
Here are a few more photos.



Now don't forget to pop over to the blog to see the rest of my teamies makes.
