Digital Hybrid Flower Pomander

I used a digital kit from Designs by Helly, called You and Me. It is located in the 9th and Bloom store, for anyone interested.

I printed out the digital papers, used a punch and punched about a million little flowers from the papers. I doubled them up on a pearlized pin and shaped them and simply covered a Styrofoam ball. It was slightly tedious and took a bit of time, but was SO easy and rewarding. I love the end result.

Take a looksie, and let me know what you think!


The idea originally came from THIS POST ... amazing work and such an inspirational site!

  13. It's so pretty. It reminds me of a hydrangea flower. That's a lot of punching involved there but the end result was well worth the effort.
