I love anything Americana.
I made the outer portion of the Uncle Sam Hat Box to use as a vase for my bouquet. I enlarged the hat so it stands 5 3/4 inches tall. I made the box from tagboard for stability, and made the rest of the hat using Glitter cardstock by Colorbok. I added a 4th of July spray and four 11 inch flags to the Uncle Sam Hat Box, then added the flower stem in around them.
I made the flowers from Americana prints from Vintage Nation Stack by the Paper Studio, Americana from Colorbok and Starry Day from Over the Moon Press. I used a shaping tool to add shape and dimension to the flowers and leaves. I glued the flowers to a multi pronged silk flower stem with the flowers and leaves removed.
I curled the ends of the petals between my thumb and first finger.
I assembled the flowers alternating the alignment of the layers and shaping the middle of the flowers. I added a gem to the center of each flower.
I shaped the leaves in a similar fashion.
I love how this Bouquet turned out! This daisy file is so versatile I can see myself using it over and over.
