Once again I was inspired by the trigger photo at Moxie Fab for this paper flower arrangement and of course all the fabulous cards and creations created by other Moxie Fabbers.
I was also inspired by this photo found on Pinterest: Carved Crayons- Pete Goldlust (this was my first pin and I’ve been hooked ever since)
Aren’t these crayons just AMAZING!!! I <3 Pinterest!!…and Rainbows of course!! I’ve been dying to make some rainbow paper flowers and I needed a teacher gift so the two kind of went hand in hand.
I chose this container because the teacher who will be receiving these paper flowers is a HUGE Pac Man fan…HUGE! I thought it kind of resembled the dot gobbling yellow guy. I had wanted to use some gamer inspired patterned paper but couldn’t find any at the craft store. With out any time to order online I had to improvise. I found some specialty card stock from Me & My Big Ideas (Airmail) which had a nice retro 80′s feel to it and all the colors I was looking for. I wanted this arrangement to be bold and graphic much like the 8-bit icons of the early gaming era. I left some holes in the arrangement so I can add some Pac-man inspired wire sculptures later so stay tuned for that.
A birds eye view of all sorts of color! Oh what cheerful, colorful, fun!
Red flowers, orange flowers, yellow flowers….
