The idea for this came from follower Anj, who left a comment saying she’d made a bouquet of flowers using Elizabeth Shaw mints and skewers …… which got me thinking …….
I’ve had these very small 3cm tall flower pots on my desk mithering me to do something with them for ages …. then after seeing Anj’s comment I thought ….. what about place settings?
I’ve sandwiched the mint and a purloined Starbucks wooden coffee stirrer for a stem, in between two sets of flower die cuts. I coloured the stirrer green with a promarker and added two punched leaves. I’ve put some plastercine in the bottom of the pot to hold the flower in place. The name of the guest could be written on the pot or a small tag attached. Thank you Anj for the inspiration.
