Fabric Flower Bouquets

These are what I made for Valentine presents. They turned out differently than what I had pictured, but overall I think they're okay.
So I started with a bunch of strips of fabric (anywhere from about 2"x18" to about 4"x36")

And made a whole bunch of fabric flowers! I wrapped baking sticks (you know the ones that look like giant sucker sticks?) in floral tape and hot glued them onto the flowers.
I got cheap flower pots, painted them, inserted a styrofoam piece inside and hot glued "moss" to the top. 

Add your flowers & a bow and you've got a fabric flower bouquet!

This one is for Landry's "school" teacher Mrs. Sasha

This is for his other teacher Mrs. Nicole
And this one we gave to Grammy

Easy-Peasy!

That is such a cute idea. I love the idea of a cloth flower bouquet; it's a thoughtful idea that will last :)

Those are cute and look so easy and fun to make. I'm sure the teachers and Grammy loved them. All those bright colors would bring a smile to anyone's day.
