Water lily home decor framed art made using the Giant Flower cartridge.

Hello, friends!

Today I have a home decor framed art wall hanging that I made using the Giant Flower cartridge. I started off with a frame I found in the clearance section at Target. Then I cut a piece of DCWV glitter paper as the base. Next I cut out the leaves and fan folded them to give them a little bit of depth. Lastly, I cut out the flower and assembled them and added it to the center of the leaves. Seriously simple! This would look so cute in a girl's room. I need to make a set of these for my nieces.

I  used coredinations cardstock.
You can use chalk ink on the petal edges to add that little bit extra.

Thanks so much for stopping by this week. See you back here next week!

Melanie, I don't think we ever formally met on the cruise, which is one of my regrets. I would have loved to thank you in person for your never-ending inspiration and to congratulate you for earning the cruise. You are doing amazing things with your CTMH business and there is so much that all of us can learn from you.

I cannot imagine how you manage to come up with so many wonderful ideas ALL OF THE TIME! This is such a great home decor item. I can just imagine a 3 to 5 of these hanging in my daughter's room or a much desired craft room of my own.
