Bouquet of Valentine Wishes

I choose the Valentine Clowns Collage Sheet to work with: Valentine Clowns Collage Sheet

You get 6 different images in 2 sizes for a total of 12. I used the larger images for this.

Once again I had to use my newest toy, I used my eBrush to color the wooden sticks I used and to decorate the jar.

I cut the stencil using clear acetate and my Cricut.

Here is the finished stencil, I used blue painter's tape to hold it onto the jar while I painted it.

I wrapped a length of tulle around the top to hide the tracks for the lid then I added a piece of pink rick rack.

I adhered my whole page of images to the back of an empty cereal box to add a bit of stiffness to them, then I cut them out with my trimmer. I added some Glossy Accents to a heart on each of the images then I adhered the images to the sticks with my hot glue gun.
I cut out some scalloped hearts to put on the sticks after adhering the sticks to the backs of my images.

I filled the jar with some iridescent Easter grass, added my images and I was done.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look.
