McGill Sunflower Bouquet…in a Can…

Good morning!
So….. I went a little crazy making Sunflowers last weekend…but it was really fun…and very relaxing. I planted myself in my craft room, turned on Bravo…(Jeff Lewis cracks me up!) and just had fun. There’s a total of 7 large Sunflowers along with a couple carefully placed smaller ones too. To get the shape of a bouquet, a Styrofoam ball was wrapped in a scrap of burlap. The look of draping foliage was achieved by simply using the Dimensional Tree Branch Punch along with the Birch Leaf Punch. My “vase” is an empty Asparagus can. Winking smile

That is it for me today. I’ll be back tomorrow with a Magnolia Card.
For more McGill inspiration and a PDF file on how to make the Sunflowers please stop by the McGill Blog. There are lots of fun things coming up.
Thank you so much for dropping by!
