Quick Tip Tuesday Money saving tip!  Come join us over at the CCR!
I LOVE using flowers! But when I buy them I HOARD them! I don't want to use them! I like to keep them on my shelf and look at them! HeHe! I needed an alternative to flowers!! And this is what I came up with!


Take your flowers from this:

  9. Carri, what a neat idea. The flower is great and so is your tutorial. The card is awesome. I absolutely am loving the way you did the ribbon and that bird in the cage is precious. Sorry I haven't been writing you. I am in a house with no wifi! Gasp! Ha. And I have been too busy and had too many kids to go to Starbucks And use theirs! Ha. Are you ready for Xmas? I'm getting there. Took the kids to see Santa today. It went pretty well but now my littlest one thinks tomorrow is Christmas! lol. Oh dear.... Hugs!

  17. Awesome tip. I never thought about doing this but then I am just like you...so many flowers (and other goodies) that I just hate using because they are so pretty.
