Mother's Day gifts I made this year

I know, I know, Mother's Day was over a month ago, but silly me, I forgot to take pictures of the things I made before I gave them away. I was finally able to take pictures to share with you here. I made the multiple flower pots for my mother, grandmother and mother-in-law. The single flower pots I gave to my sisters and sister-in-laws.

I bought the pots (already painted) from the new Hobby Lobby store here in Cache Valley. I put some floral foam in the bottom of the pots and put in some wooden dowels, that I had painted green, into the foam. I covered the foam with the decorative rocks. I then cut out the flowers with my cricut machine and the Walk in my Garden cartridge. The cardstock that I used was a variety from my scraps (Bazzill and Stampin Up). I then chalked and doodled on the flowers. For the center pieces on the flowers, I used my new Shimmer Mist from Tattered Angels for texture and just a touch of sparkle. I then attached them to the dowels with some of my craft glue dots. I tied a ribbon around the pots and made little tags for each of them.
