A box of Flower Bulbs for my mum

Hi everybody

Today I'd like to show you a little project that I made for my mum. It's a sort of a milk carton with a holder filled with flower bulbs. When my mum came to visit us in the spring she noticed these gorgeous bluebells hyacinth flowers that I had in my garden and she said she loved them and asked me what they were. When I ordered plants for my garden the other day I decided to order her a bunch of the flower bulbs for these hyacinths so she could plant them in her own garden to enjoy next year.
One of the first design teams that I was on a looooooong time ago was Pink Cat Studio by Melissa Rodger. Though I haven't used her images for a while I still adore them and I knew right away that I wanted to use Pink Cat Studio's Lady Gnome for this project. What better image to decorate a box of flower bulbs then a cute little gnome right?
A close up of the adorable little Lady Gnome colored with Copic Markers and 3D paper pieced.
Here you can see the milk carton separate from the holder. I used a purchased template to create this set, the Well Contained template from My Time Made Easy (LOVE this template). As you can see I attached some of the gorgeous Wild Orchid Crafts flowers to the holder and some to the carton.
When the carton is put back in the holder they form a gorgeous flower corner together.
And the little pieces the Lady Gnome was made with.

Hope you like my little milk carton filled with flower bulbs. Can't wait to give it to my mum! Have a fabulous day everybody!!!
