Pay it Forward 2011 - Love Bouquet

A couple of weeks ago I posted to my facebook page for the first five people to respond I would make them something hand-made in 2011 - someone else had called it "pay it forward." Eight people responded (i didnt know i had eight friends who cared - seriously.)

Well, unlike past years where I've made sweeping promises such as this, this year I intend on pushing myself to keep it. Damnit. This year is a reemergence of many things. Again... damnit.

The first Pay It Forward gift goes to Ashley and Zeleika - two new friends from the 'hood. And they just celebrated their 8 year anniversary, so i created this "love bouquet" for them.

The vase itself is about 5 inches tall and comes from the Target $1 section - a scary scary place for a crafter. I grunged it up a bit with acrylic paint.

The flowers are a collage of paper and paint i cut up and put back together again (yes, my go to favorite thing). I then had to retrain myself how to cut a flower shape! How weird was that?! The flowers are pulled together by some electrical wire I found at Ace Hardware in their $1 bin and capped off with buttons.

one gift down ... seven more to do ...
