Winter Topiary

I worked last night and this morning on this-got your interest?
this sweet topiary is made mostly with punches.
aren't the colors devine- soo
pretty - almost springlike- but
it's got little snowflakes. the line is Holiday Cheer from Bobunny!
I almost wish it had some sparkly snow on it- how fun would that be, little touches of glitter.
but with the gems all over it- I think it has enough sparkle.

then I tied these little bows from twine and adhered them in different spots all over. Each flower has a gem, some have a pink gem, most have white.

then I punched circles from the designs on the paper, and glued them to the pot, adding in a rickrack paper strip from Bazzill. I added a Bobunny white dotted ribbon as well - I am so thrilled with this.
wanna know the best part? I got these little topiaries at the DOLLAR store last christmas. Can't beat that deal! I have another one with a different design, I am thinking I will be doing something with that one soon, this was just sooooo much fun to make. I will admit- my thumb got sore pushing all the pins in I used to hold the flowers on. But it's all good- so much happiness from this piece, even my girls were just falling over it- they admired it so much!
that's it for tonight- have a great one!
