Envelope Punch Board - Basket

I thought this basket was such a great thing to make for spring and I wanted to do something else with it. I saw this flower basket that Pip Todman, a demo fron the UK, filled with flowers made from the Spiral Flower Die. I just used the basket we made in class. I filled it with green tissue paper and glued the flowers on the paper. Here is a picture of the basket Pip made. Below is my version.


You thought I was done? Nooooo  I made this butterfly chain to hang in my craft room. You punch out five butterflies of each color. Fold all five in half and glue them together back to back. Just before gluing the last side, insert the ribbon in the middle.


Those are two Dahlias hot glued together.
Aren't these the cutest things?
You can order a box of the dalhias here.
Now I want to make one with green ribbon and flowers. I thought about using the Pansy punch, but then one of the ladies in class, said those flowers made with the spiral flower die would be pretty.
