teacups and posies

Flowers are always a classic for Mother’s Day. We all have our favorites. I like bouquets that come from the garden. Things like lilacs, hydrangeas, daisies and daffodils. But how about a fun little floral arrangement that doesn’t fade?

I thought I’d put a little spin on the traditional Mother’s Day flowers with this little teacup arrangement filled with crafted flowers. To fill my teacup and provide something to adhere the flowers to, I wadded up a large piece of aluminum foil and adhered it with Craft Glue Dots® to the inside of the cup.

The beautiful big trim flowers were created with Maya Road trims and XXL Glue Dots®. I’ve gone with a sewing theme and you can see little glimpses of vintage sewing pattern tissue peeking out between them as a filler.

Little accents of tape measure trims and tulle trim are adhered just inside the rim of the teacup with Craft Glue Dots® to finish off the design.

There is no limit to what you can create with your crafting supplies. Don’t forget to think outside the box…or off the card or the page.


I wrote this blog post while participating on the Glue Dots® design team.
Happy creating!
