Daisy Crazy....

Recently I went a little 'Daisy Crazy" making some items for a family member's bridesmaid luncheon that we attended over the weekend.

We wanted something to go with the daisy centerpieces for the luncheon tables to liven them up a little so I came up with making a placemat for each arrangement using Elegant Edges daisy shape cut at 10.50 inches.

To give them stability, I cut a solid daisy shape out of white cardstock, then the daisy cut out using shiny yellow cardstock, then the green polka dot is scalloped circle for the center. To match the polka dot theme, I then cut the daisy cut out using white cardstock and kept the petal center pieces only. I used the cuttlebug to emboss with the polka dot embossing folder to give them a little more dimension and then glued on each petal.


Next came the idea to make some matching "daisyfetti" using the the Cricut Quilling Daisy...after making a 100 of these, I am now a quilling pro !  They sure looked pretty scattered on the tables around the arrangements.

Here is a close up of a few of the daisys.  I kept the yellow theme going but used different shades to give them more detail. I love how the polka dot leaves really livened them up.

Most importantly, the bride was really happy with them since she loves daisys. 

I haven't downloaded my photos from the wedding events yet but will post pics of the entire table so you can see how they looked.

How cool I love all the daisies and I especially like the way you used the polka dot paper for the leaves
