Chrysanthemum pumpkin display

The chrysanthemum flowers were cut with the cricut using scal and an svg file from The flowers were made with textured cardstock and sponged and curled for dimension along with the leaves. The pumpkin is a craft pumpkin for a local scrapbook store with the top cut and floral form added to the inside for the flowers to sit into. The butterfly design was cut from the cricut using vinyl. And the final touch was the ribbon bow. This was a fun but long project, but the outcome was worth it.
Thanks for looking.

Teacher backpack

Here's a backpack that I made for my child's preschool teacher which we filled with monogrammed tissues, monogrammed notepad and pen and a monogrammed paperclip holder for the teacher aide. The buttons on the backpack are the stamps that I used on the pack colored on shrink plastic and punched and heated. This was a fun project and a great way to start off the school year.
