Christy's Craft Challenge: April

A few weeks ago, I saw something about Christy's Craft Challenge. I looked at the instructions, checked out some of the March projects, and decided to give it a try for April. Now, I definitely do not think I am a true "crafter". I enjoy crafts, but most don't come easily to me. (Just a disclaimer, my mom is the crafter behind CJ's Craft Corner...in case you were worried. :)

When my April Craft Challenge Supplies arrived, I was stumped...I had no clue what to make. I talked it over with my mom and came up with an idea to use the supplies to make a photo holder. I decided to make it in a flowerpot and have the pictures be the "flowers".

After spending some time crafting today, here is my finished product!

In addition to the included supplies, I used the following:
  • Wire
  • Scrapbooking paper
  • Green flowerpot (from the Target $1 Spot)
  • White ribbon
  • Floral oasis
  • Green and yellow ribbon
  • Letter stickers to spell "bloom"
Close-up of "flowers":

Back (to show I used all the supplies...including clothespins and felt!):
I am looking forward to seeing all of the wonderful, beautiful, creative ideas everyone comes up with! I did have fun participating in Christy's Craft Challenge this month!
