Floriano Mini Garden Pot

Here is a cute and simple project to dress up your tables at your house! These would also be cute to give as a gift too!

I handmade the flower using the Floriano punch by McGill. I punched out six petals and then ran them through the cuttle bug using an embossing folder. I then took out the petals and very lightly shaded the petals with ink. I then took the petals and pinched them up on all six.
I took three and place them inside one another while alternating the petals. Do the same to the left over three to make two flowers. 
I took the Starburst punch by McGill and added some fake stamens in the center. I punched out four brown and four dark red. I glued two red and two brown together and made two sets of fake stamens for the center of my flowers. I then added a flat back pearl to top it off.
I punched out four leaves using the Birch Leaf punch by McGill and shaded the edges. I added two sets to each flower.

After getting my flower together I then took a wooden skewer and attached one flower to one side and the other to the back side of where I placed the first flower. (so they matched up)

I then got a small clay pot and added some foam and ornamental grass.
I stuck the skewer in the center then added my ribbon to the edge to dress up the clay pot a little!

Very easy flower to create and a very simple project to make for your home or as a gift!
