The large paper flower is constructed with card stock scrap-booking paper in 4 quadrants and glued together, then attached to a dowel rod. The lime green leaves were cut to size and attached to the dowel with green floral tape. These cute blooming beauties were potted in bright yellow and white polka-dot flower pots. Styrofoam and green moss kept the flowers upright and secure in the flower pots.
Neon Faux Pleated Pillow tutorial was inspired by a quilting blogger, Vanessa Christianson, with V and Co. She made a faux pleated pillow in the mono chromatic fabrics using a Jelly Roll from Fat Quarters. I am going to refer you to her blog site for great instructions, the only thing I did differently was the color selection of the jelly roll fabrics. For my pillow, I used 25 colors for this pillow front but followed her layout and sewing instructions. I loved this pillow so much I made two, and will make more but in different fabric color combinations. Thank you Vanessa for sharing this great pillow idea.
