How does your garden grow

Hello there blogging friends!  I've got a workshop coming up with 20 lovely WI ladies tomorrow night and they want to make boxes and handmade flowers so I've been playing about with some samples.  Here's one I made with the lovely Jane's Garden stamps from Oxford Impressions - really like that set.

Its just a simple pizza box and the flowers are made with five tiny circles glued onto a sixth circle and then the edges curled with tweezers and a pearl centre added.  Don't think we'll have time to make Jane's little beaded bag but it will give them some ideas anyway.  The other flowers I've planned are rolled roses and hydrangea florets - both very easy so wish me luck with my class!  I'm all prepped up and rarin' to go.  Thanks for popping in to say hello.  Margie x


  1. Margie
    This is an absolute delight.
    Isn't she so pretty and a believe a coyness (or maybe she is pretending!) to her.
    Your flowers are so pretty.

  2. So pretty Margie, I totally love this! Wonderful how Jane just pops off the background, and such an effective way of making those flowers, - a gorgeous piece!!

  3. Hope the class is successful (I'm sure it will be). What a fabulous box. They will be thrilled to have one of their own to take home. Hugs, Jenny x

  4. Hi Margie, I love your clever flowers and those Jane stamps are just gorgeous and you show them off so well on your beautiful box. I think the WI ladies are going to have a wonderful creative time at your workshop - hope you have lots of fun too! Hugs, Anne x

  5. Have a wonderful time teaching your class! I think the ladies will have a marvellous time!

  6. What a sweet box, I am sure your group will have loved it and your ideas. Thanks for the visit my way...still taking a break but expect the mojo to come back soon! Hugs.

  7. What beautiful work you do, Margie! I love this box, the idea of circles being tuned into flowers is so fantastic!! And, Jane's beaded purse is to die for!! I'm so excited to be sharing Astrid's ICAD swap with you!
    Thanks for visiting my blog and your kind comments. I really do appreciate it!

  8. Beautiful! Sure wish I could attend your workshop! What fun!

  9. What a delightful make... I'm sure the class was a huge success. So sorry - I hadn't realised I wasn't signed up - all sorted now!
