When you move, things are bound to get misplaced. Since we have been in the new house I’ve been missing my cheque book and my hot glue gun.
Yesterday, I finally unearthed both items (for some reason they were actually in the same place). I was most excited about the latter as I have several craft projects dependant on its rediscovery.
Last night I fired it up and made this. They were so fast and easy to put together, I made several more today.
Here’s what would need if you wanted to make some yourself:
hot glue gun (or craft glue – I think the hot glue holds better though)
a plain gift bag
8 or 9 buttons
leaf punch (mine is Martha Stewart brand from Micheals)
1. Punch out lots and lots of leaves (I used a whole page of cardstock)
2. Draw a circle on the bag (I just traced around a small saucer)
3. Using a dap of glue attach the base of the stems to the bag in a V formation, about a centimeter apart, working your way all around the circle.
4. When all the leaves are attached. Glue on the buttons.
