A Floral Topiary with My Silhouette SD!

I had a friend get married today and boy was it a beautiful and fun wedding!  She asked me months ago to decorate her candy buffet and of course I said YES!  I had so much fun using my Silhouette to create the tags labeling the candy containers and even more fun creating a floral topiary!  I was inspired by a round topiary I saw in the Flickr Silhouette Group page.

The piece made me giddy, being a geeky paper crafter something like this makes a girl like me giddy, LOL.  What is hard to show you in these photos is that after I created it I misted it with some water mixed with pearl accents and it looked delish!   Once you are done browsing click HERE to go back to Today’s Creative Blog for more links!  And would love for you to come back again or just click on the HOME button so that you can see more current posts, there’s a cute Halloween post HERE.

I love the flower topiary! LOVE IT! I would have never thought about having a candy bar for your guest to take home. Great idea.

The topiary is so pretty! But it must've taken forever to make all those little paper flowers. Unless they were just premade ones you bought at the store or something.

SaraJane, you are so lovely to put folks in the mood for spring. One of my favourite flowers is the hydrangea, and they bloom for a very long period! and these came out fantastic. I'm going to ask the Easter Bunny dissertation writing services london to put you in my Easter basket this year, so be ready!
