"Sweet" Posies for Spring...Taylored Expressions Release Day!

It's Release Day at Taylored Expressions! I hope you have enjoyed this week's projects celebrating Spring and Easter. Today I have a fun project for you that will be sure to satisfy a sweet tooth! I got to use the adorable new set, A Tweet for You, and when I saw the sentiment, I couldn't resist making some "flowers" for the upcoming holiday.
To make the blooms, I poked thin pipe-cleaners into some Reese's peanut butter eggs (my hubby's fave) and punched out some flowers from the bright colored cardstock from the brand new Spring Project Pantry kit. I appropriated a little tin that my son abandoned and inserted a little piece of styrofoam at the bottom to hold up the edible flowers, filling it with some paper strips that I ran through a crimper. Finally, I stamped the cute tag using one of the frames included in the set and added the darling little tulips. Happy Spring!
