Elegant Wedding Roses Gift Set

Remember these paper flowers? I couldn't wait for another chance to make more! Today's Inspiration Challenge on SCS gave me just the push I needed.

Here's my choice.

I was so happy a friend asked me to make another wedding day gift can for her...She said she gets the nicest thank you notes from the bride and groom! She tucks a gift card amid some excelsior inside the can along with a scroll that I print on vellum listing ways for the couple to use the can after the wedding.

Some examples are: saving for a special 1st anniversary trip, writing notes to be read on their anniversary, date night savings, etc.

The couple's photo always goes on top so it's very personalized. The happy couple's colors are black and white with red roses, of course. I have more roses trailing down the back. I spritzed the can and roses with silver Glimmer Mist because their invitation had a silvery sheen on black...gorgeous!

Here is the card I created to go with the can. For some reason, I just couldn't get a decent picture of it!

For those of you wondering about a tutorial, I used the book, The Paper Garden. Due to copyright infringement laws, I can't tell you how to do it here without permission from the author, but you can find the book and all the supplies at

The rose requires a medium pear punch, a 1/2" circle punch, I used my MS leaf punch, and I used the tool kit on the site to shape and alter the punched shapes. I used the Crafter's Pick glue she recommends in the book which I found at Michael's. The book gives detailed pictures and clear, concise instructions.

Thanks for stopping by....your comments are always appreciated!
