Pumpkin Flower Bouguet

Today's challenge at the Sisterhood of Crafters, hosted by Darlene, is "Pumpkins or the Color Orange". I decided to create a basket to hold flowers for the centerpiece of my dining table. There were so many fall silk flowers to choose from at the craft store, I had a hard time deciding on which ones to use. I finally decided on these yellow-orange, red and orange ones.

I found the template for this cute basket here. This was such a fun and easy project, I think I will make more for Halloween treats for the grandchildren.

The basket was printed on an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of Recollections card stock and cut out with scissors. The handle is a 1 1/4" x 11" strip of the same card stock adhered to the inside of each side of the basket with sticky strip. Easy peasy!

I have entered this basket in the following challenges:

Crafty Gals Corner - Anything Goes 
Simon Says Stamp - Autumn
Craft Your Passion - Always Anything Goes
Robyn's Fetish - Anything But A Card

Okay, now it's time to head on over to the Sisterhood to check out the 'sistah's' inspiration projects and enter your creation. You have until 8pm (est), Sunday November 6th to enter. There is a limit of 3 entries per person. Have fun and Good Luck!

  3. This is such a clever idea! I love how it perfectly combined Halloween with the elegant beauty of Fall. I don't see jack-o-lanterns combined with flowers very often, but it is GENIUS and I adore how this turned out! Plus I'm always in favor of stylish ways to organize. Thank you so much for sharing such a clever piece of art with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

  4. Very nice card.
