Twine flowers and leaves

Yeah, I know it is March and not the beginning of the year, but I made a calendar! I have had this wooden set for probably a year sitting there waiting to have some love. And well it finally got the love it deserved! Jillibean Soup's Pasta Fagioli and Dutch Mustard Soup! I have decided that my dream scrappy room will be decorated with items altered using these 2 collections! I already have a clock (you can see it HERE) and now I have a calendar! What's next? Who knows, but I do have some ideas!!!
As you can see I had fun creating some fun little flowers for this project. I used Jillibean twine and created my own version of the new Bean Blossoms. I used Bean Stalks (twine), Cool Beans and Corrugated Shapes. I covered a piece of chipboard that I had cut into a circle and three leaf shapes with double sided adhesive. I then adhered the twine in the patterned I desired. I finished off the flower by adding the corrugated flower and button with my hot glue gun.
Jillibean Soup Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Pasta Fagioli/Clove Fresh Garlic, Romano Cheese, Meatballs, Shell Macaroni, Blended Beans; Dutch Mustard Soup/Creme Fraiche, Whole Grain Mustard, Gruyere Cheese, Cornstarch
Corrugated Alphas: Kraft, White
Corrugated Shapes: Flowers
Bean Stalks: Multi Stripe Ribbon, Stars Ribbon
Cool Beans: Brown

Other Supplies: Wooden Calendar by Hobby Lobby, Font Bernard MT Condensed

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Hugs!
