I came up with this wind chime idea while napping on the couch with my daughter. She was very into Disney TV and I was spacing out. (One can only see those shows so many times before the brain melt starts!)
I started with a cut from the new Flower Shoppe Cricut cartridge. I cut "Fun4" at fit to page. I taped the flower together to give it it's 3D shape. Then I cut an image from the Paper Lace cart both in chipboard and white cardstock. I hot glued my new Paper Lace "bracket" inside the flower.
This is what the top of my wind chime looks like upside down.
I cut two different fairies from A Child's Year cart and butterflies from Paper Lace in varying sizes. I attached them to 24 inches of green and turquoise ribbon with glue and hot glue. At the bottom of the ribbons I attached varying sizes of flowers from the Mother's Day Bouquet cart. In between the flowers I hot glued a penny for weight. Lastly, I attached rhinestones along the ribbon for some sparkle.
For the top of the wind chime I glued a variety of Mother's Day Bouquet flowers in varying sizes and colors.
I took these pictures outside on my deck. My neighbors beautiful garden is the perfect backdrop for these photos.
