Spring flowers

When I first thought about my flower project I was actually thinking about it as a gift to give my grandmother for Easter. Well...when I started working away at it and finishing it up I really really liked so I decided to not give it to her. I know I know you are probably thinking that's mean, well my grandmother got real ones inside. She enjoys those better. Back to my project, well I started cutting out a bunch of flowers from the 3d flowers file from SVG Cuts using my Silhouette Cameo machine and my Cricut Imagine for some flowers using the Flower Shoppe cartridge. I figured this would speed up the cutting process. Well it did but then I got confused with what went with what and ended up spending more time trying to figure it all out. So not so great of an idea. All I know is I ended up with more pieces then I needed and I left some flowers out since they were not complete. Lol:)

I do know that I cut the bushel basket using an SVG cuts file called Caramel Apple Pie. Once I worked out everything the best way I could I was able to put a cute project together I believe. I couldn't tell you want paper I used or what all I used since I was so stressed out trying to figure out all of the pieces but it's ok the project was worth it.

I used a Martha Stewart punch for the butterfly's along with Martha Stewart glitter.
