The feature I did for Better Homes and Gardens May is on the newsstand, which means I finally get to share some of the projects I've been keeping under wraps. The first is the invitation shown above - paper origami cherry blossoms glued to a twig from the garden and placed in a brown paper envelope, along with a card. I love this as a simple invitation, but I think it would make a lovely "Happy Spring" or Mother's Day card as well.
I also crafted several containers for flowers and I think you'll have fun with those, too. My favorite is the lace decoupaged vase. It's one of the easiest projects I've ever come up with and one of the most satisfying. I've been collecting lace and making them ever since (I'll show some of them off later in the week).
To see more of this feature and get directions for the projects shown above, you can pick up the May issue of Better Homes and Gardens or visit their website.
