Art Philosophy Topiary

I finally finished the topiary that I made for my mom. I thought this would cheer her. She loves flowers and I hope she will love this too. I cut the flowers using my Art Philosophy cartridge. The flowers were cut at 3 inches and then rolled and glued with my hot glue gun. I painted a styrofoam ball in the same dark burgundy color as the Core'dinations paper I used. I bought floral pins to attached the rolled flowers to the ball and then I hot glued the ball to a dowel rod and inserted it into some styrofoam that was also glued inside of the flower pot. I added some matching ribbon and a bow to top of the project.
