To Grandma, With Love!

Mother's Day is right around the corner so I threw together a fun little project that all those photo-loving Grandmas will be thrilled to have.
It's a dandelion vase!!!
A half size water bottle (8 oz) fits perfectly inside. I would have demonstrated its usefulness, but we are still under a foot or so of snow so no dandelions here!
Here is a preview of some of the supplies I purchased...The pencil cup, floral wire, and Studio g charms were only a dollar each!!!
Printed Butterfly Cardstock (I used MME:My Girl)
Assorted cardstock for punched flowers
Floral Wire
Binder Clip
2.5 by 3.5 Photo
Large and small brads
2 inch Circle Punch
1.5 inch Flower Punch
Step 1: Cut multiple butterflies from printed paper, ink the edges.
Step 2: Embellish with stickles.
Step 3: Stack two butterflies and add a thin line of glue on the body.
Fold top butterfly wings up when glue is dry.
Step 4: Cut 6 inches of floral wire, warp around body of butterfly, leave tail loose.

Step 5: Wrap loose butterfly "tail" around rim of pencil cup.
Step 6: Punch 5 circles from patterned paper using a 2 inch circle punch.
Punch 5 flowers from patterned paper using a 1.5 inch flower punch.
Step 7: Pierce a hole through the center of the flower and circle.
Use a small brad to attach flower assembly to pencil cup. 
Add large flower brads, photo, binder clip, and charms (strung on twine) as shown.

Hope this Dandelion Vase is just the project you needed to show someone a little love. Stop by my blog Scrappin Chaos for a list of supplies used.
