{Giveaway!} Rananulus and/or Rose Bouquet


Those of you who follow me on Tacebook and/or Twitter know that I recently decided that I wanted to host my first giveaway. I asked you guys what you thought I should giveaway and there was overwhelming support for a bouquet of flowers. I LOVE this idea!! 

This giveaway is for a bouquet (20 blossoms) of paper ranunculus and/or rose blossoms. The winner will be able to choose the combination of blossoms desired, and the colors desired. They will also be able to choose whether or not they want the blossoms assembled or unassembled. (I'm obviously happy to do the assembly, but I've had some people tell me they'd prefer to complete the flowers themselves.)

To enter the giveaway you may choose any (or all) of the following entry methods:

1) Follow my blog and leave a comment telling me what your favorite blog is. This is not a trick question, I'm not looking for you to say DIY or Don't (though don't get me wrong, I'd be honored if it really was your favorite blog!) what I am looking for is a list great blogs that I should check out!

2) Follow me on Facebook and/or Twitter and leave a comment telling me you've done so

3) Facebook, blog or tweet about the giveaway with a linkback and then comment here with a link to your Facebook comment/tweet, blog post.

The giveaway ends on Tuesday, August 29th and the winner will be announced Wednesday August 30th!


I also think this is the perfect opportunity to share with all of you a couple of the bouquets two of my readers assembled with my templates and then sent me photos of. These bouquets are so beautiful and I'm so grateful they shared them with me!

Michelle's Bouquet
I LOVE the different patterns in the coordinating colors! So pretty!!

Melany's Bridal Bouquet
Do you see the little dew-drop adornments on the petals?! So sweet :)

Thank you again ladies for sharing your finished products!!

Greetings Pretty Lady- I've been following you for a bit now and I'm loving what I've seen and look forward to more inspiration... As for fav blog- for me it's actually an iPhone app- craftgawker. It's how I found you in the first place. As for the give-away... I've downloaded all I need to make my own but as a teacher (2nd grade) at the start of the new school year- I never seem to have the time to assemble the materials.... I'd love to enter! Take care and may the Goddess of all that is crafty continue to guide your way... Be well. Namaste

Oh my gosh - your blog has been such an inspiration to me! I'm planning my wedding and will be exclusively using handmade DIY paper flowers. I LOOOOVE your rose and ranunculus tutorials - I totally have the rose down but haven't been able to master the ranunculus.

Favorite blog? Gosh, I read soooo many. If you're a foodie the smittenkitchen.com is pretty awesome, if you're an animal lover then I HIGHLY recommend the7msnranch.com (probably my favorite), for general awesomeness I love thepioneerwoman.com, and for hilarity you should check out catalogliving.net. Hope that's enough to get you started!

Pinterest has made me into such a blog junkie...too many good ones out there!! Recently I've been loving yours (duh), Ramshackle Glam, The Hairpin (not really a blog, but awesome nonetheless) and Dear Photograph.

I'm now a follower on facebook too! I love checking your page for new craft ideas. I'm a poor newly married college student, so i love taking your ideas to decorate in my little apartment :)The ranunculus post was one of my favorites so far, but i also love all your wedding ideas.

Hi,I've been following you for a little bit now and keep meaning to try making some flowers.
I have lots of favorite blogs but two of them are
http://shropshirescrappersuz.blogspot.com/ and http://ournewlifeinthecountry.blogspot.com/ both quite low key personal blogs but so interesting just the same.

Jen said...

First saw these flowers on SparkleandHay & fell in love. Your blog is giving me so much inspiration for my wedding! Thanks!!!
My favorite blog seems to change daily, but today it is www.offbeatbride.com.

michelle_alena said...

Because I am currently planning my wedding, which is only 63 days away, I spend all my free time on wedding blogs. My favorites are greenweddingshoes.com and loveandlavendar.com!

chellekoll said...

I have to say that your blog is my favorite! I am doing all paper flowers for my wedding in October and my favorite flower of all is the paper rose I learned to make from your site.

Mikki said...

Did you mean that the winner will be announced on tuesday or wednesday? Wednesday is the 31st not the 30th! :)

Well of course I want to be entered and of course I am going to say my favorite Blog is yours! LOL. But seriously, there are several I follow, yours being one of the top ones!As well as Amazing Paper Grace! So thanks for the chance to be entered in your drawing.

Jen said...

I am in LURVE with www.allthingspaper.net
especially their quilled marriage certificates! The medieval art of quilling really gives a.) credibility to all my [attempted] paper projects--paper art is an old, timeless craft. b.) inspiration that someone very left-brained like *me* can be creative. c.) something healthy for me to do with my hands (it's the antidote to my nightly texting, snacking, channel-surfing!)
