Altered Soup Can and Paper Flowers

Happy Wednesday everyone! Hope you all had a great Valentine's Day yesterday. My husband cooked a delicious surf and turf dinner for Valentine's Day. He was so amazing! He made shrimp, scallop, fish and potato soup and oyster for appetizer and lobster, fish and steak with vegetables for the main course. It was so yummy! I was so stuff I couldn't move after that. Thank you honey for the wonderful Valentine's Day dinner!

A few weeks ago a 10 years old girl came up to me and asked me to make some decorations for a going away party. It took me awhile to figure out what to make for her since she didn't have any idea what she wants.  

I altered a soup can by covering it with pattern paper. I went looking for all the pink/red pattern papers that I have. I have quite a stash of pattern papers that I have not use for a long time. Now they are all gone after making these flowers. I made 12 of these flowers and altered 4 cans. I also shredded the pattern papers and then crimped them and put them in the cans. This helps the flowers to stay put inside the can.

I die cut the flowers with the Fun Flowers Die, tape them together by threes and then curled the ends. Sandwich two flowers together with a skewer in the middle as a stem.

"The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever."
Isaiah 40:8
