A Great Find!

Monday evening I was not feeling very inspired until I found myself wondering the aisles of Michael's. Since Sarah and I have another baby shower coming up, I was lerking in the baby/wedding section and happened upon one really great find.

These are supposed to be table confetti for weddigs, but as a card maker/scrapbooker my first thought was "who in their right mind would waste these on a table????" LOL so of course this pretty little container of pearl colored paper flowers accompanied me to the check out. I have no idea how many flowers are in here but there is A LOT! Not to mention the cute container that is totally alterable, all for a cheap (Canadian) price of $8.99. They are also on sale this week for 25% off. SO all in all not to bad.

Here is one card I made with them. It is a smaller card, measuring 3.5 x 5 and is just so cute. I am so glad I found a place with new envelope sizes, it really opens the doors of possibilitie. There is nothing owrse then not having a proper fit for your card, IMO.

Supplies: SU kraft, SU Simply Scrappin' Rose Cottage, retired SU ribbon, Stamps from the month of May Hero Arts Clear, basic brown classic ink, and of course my flower find from Michael's.

Have a great Day!!


  1. Hello Julie Anne. I'm glad you mentioned your blog ... made me drop in !! I love those flowers - meant to go look at them when I was at Michaels yesterday but I forgot. Drat, I'll maybe have to go visit this weekend :-)

    I'm going to bookmark your blog and come back and visit when I have more time to browse - survivor is on tonight -- can't miss it!!


  2. Cute card! I also found those flowers last weekend. I was lucky enough to get the last container at my Michaels. I agree there are a ton! I saw a blog where the girl colored them with markers. I may try that one day. So do tell....about this place you found to buy envelopes. I am all ears!

  3. I just got some of these flowers in white and am pretty excited--They're small enough to fit just about anywhere and you can color them or leave them plain.

    I agree they're a great find!
