This is one of my earlier paper flower arrangements. I made these for a friend to be used as a centerpiece for her Daughter’s 1st birthday. Since it was a ladybug birthday party I tried to incorporate lady bugs wherever I could. I thought it would be cute if the Flowers could be displayed year after year on her birthday….they are birthday flowers after all.
Some of the wire sprigs are beaded with swarovski crystals (rainbow colors of course) for the rest I used letter beads to spell out “Happy Birthday Calla.” I was so excited to find the cute ladybug pot. The novelty ladybug buttons were an added bonus. Only the pink ones came with glitter so I had to glitter the red ones by hand. These flowers were a huge hit! In fact they aren’t displayed only on her birthday but in her room all year long.
