Flower Pillow Cover {HGTV Fabric}

I recently received some of the new HGTV Fabric available at Jo-Ann to review and the first thing I thought of was how perfect the yellow and grey fabric matched my current home decor. Since I’m currently working on updating my front porch I knew adding bright, colorful pillow covers would be easy to do. With the grey and yellow fabric I made a flower pillow cover to coordinate with my porch makeover. It’s still a work in process but I hope to finish this weekend and show it to you next week!

DIY Paper Flowers {without a die cutting machine}

With Mother’s Day quickly approaching it’s time to start thinking about gifts and ideas for the special mother’s in your life. Today I’m going to show you how easy it is to make paper flowers without a die cutting machine. It’s no secret that I enjoy using my die cutting machines, but I still like using punches just as much as I used to! These flowers are made with a punch, layered to create an ombre effect, and finished with a button in the center. You can use the paper flowers in a bouquet, centerpiece for your Mother’s Day brunch, or to wear as a boutonniere.
