Are you familiar with Ikebana? It's the art of Japanese flowering arranging. To me, it is a simplistic form of arranging flowers using the minimalist of supplies. It's an artform which can make a plain white wall the focal point of the room. Here's a sample
Here I've tried a 2D Ikebana arrangment on the Cross Box template
. The concept is for a more modern wedding favor. What do you think?
Here's a close-up.
Aren't these flowers darling? They're super easy to make. I've snapped a few photos for you to see how I've created them.
Start out with a flower punch, like the old reliable boho punch.
Punch several of the smallest flowers in white cardstock. Using a foam mat, push down on the center of the flower using a pencil eraser.
This next step is optional. To cup the flower more, use a Q-tip and form the edges around the soft tip. The circumfernce of the Q-tip is smaller than the eraser so it allows you to give the flower more shape.
Lastly, sponge some pink ink on the inner petals. My sample uses a very subtle soft pink, I was going for a softer look.
Last step is to simply attach them to your Cross Box
. The seed beads were added with some old realiable white glue. Give it a try and be sure to send the link so I can check out your sample.
