Happy May Day!


I don't remember when it started but for as long as I can remember I have given my mom flowers on May Day.  This year will be no different.  I started making these flowers a last month but never finished them. (Can you tell I am a procrastinator? Nah.)  This all started while I was browsing Pinterest and seeing tons of beautiful paper flowers and was amazed that they were being made from coffee filters.  So I found a tutorial I liked and started making them. Then stopped. Then started again. Then stopped... You get the picture. I did finally get them done! 

I think theses are so pretty gathered together!  There are five flowers here.
I stamped a tag and tied it to the bouquet.
I thought I would give her a little something that she can carry with her wherever she goes, to know that she is loved!


The heart is a pocket token from Lisa Leonard Designs.  This is my third order in a little over a month!  All of her items are handcrafted and simply stunning!

Thank you for stopping by and wishing you a wonderful May Day!
