A Floral Placecard with Core'dinations, Petaloo, and May Arts fabulousness!

Floral Placecard (detail 2)


Have you every made something and realized when you were done that you just really love it? That is what happened with this project! It all started with a fabulous collaboration between the May Arts, Core'dinations, and Petaloo design teams! Yup! We are having some fun over on the May Arts Blog this week!

Floral Placecard Finished 1


For my project I decided to create a super pretty placecard for the holidays. I used non-traditional colors, but you could easily switch them for more traditional or go with fall tones for Thanksgiving or even do them in cool Halloween colors if you want! Each one consists of three flowers (cut with the Art Philosophy Cartridge on Sally the Cricut) and can be placed right down on the plate. They make a great take-home gift for your guests, too!

Cut flowers with Cricut


This is what they look like when you cut them and then you just roll them to create the flowers. I also added some gorgeous May Arts beaded wire in pearl to the centers along with a suede leaf on each flower. The stems are May Arts wired string in copper.

Attach leaves to the back of flowers


You can find the complete tutorial over on the May Arts blog along with a full list of supplies. You TOTALLY should check out the various posts over there and leave your comments because LOTS of prizes are being given away!!!
