I love all the little crochet goodies in this months kit. They can make something so adorable in no time at all! I took a little heart tin I had on hand, but you could certainly use even a mint tin to make a this little flower box. I covered it with designer paper and painted a glossy glue on for a finished look. Granted you can't see a lot of the base in the pictures, but in person you can...so make it pretty :). I took some of the ribbon that comes in the kit and glued around the edge to give a great finished look. I then got a styrofoam ball cut it in half and painted it dark green. This is where I glued the flowers and the leaves on to create a three dimensional hydrangea flower.
I can see doing something like this for little favors at a table setting or just a thinking of you trinket. It's springy, fun and easy peasy.
Here's the best part of this project...you can get the embellishments you need all in the May's Kit. Great price, wonderful selection and plenty to make with lots and lots of goodies. Just a few days left to get yours so hurry.
