picture bouquets

I have been making picture bouquets of my parents to use at their 50th wedding anniversary party next weekend...I am very happy with the way they turned out! I know it is hard to see the pictures in my lousy photograph! sorry about that! I used white silk flower pieces that I purchased in bulk at my local scrapbook store. punched the yellow centers with the giga scallop punch. Then I punched the out the pictures with a large circle punch. The flowerpots are from Michaels as well as the ribbon. so cute!!! THIS IN NOT MY ORIGINAL IDEA! The general idea came from THIS post by Lisa Johnson...it also includes a tutorial! I just changed it up a little to make it my own!
Thanks for stopping by today!!! I am so counting down the days for my VACATION!!!!!!
