Scrapbook paper Flower Tree

In the corner of the waiting room at my DR's office, there's a gorgeous spring-y tree with flowers made from scrapbook paper! The lighting in there is terrible, so my pix don't do the tree justice, but I thought it was too pretty not to share! The colors are very vibrant in person! I might have to make one for my daughter's room or my future craft room. LOVE it!

The base is a large flower pot with foam in it and a green tissue paper cover. The branches are real tree branches and the flowers were hot glued to the branches. The center of each flower was a ribbon-tied button.

I would love to make something like that for my daughter's room. Too bad she is not a girly-girl. Trains, dinosaurs, and little people rule the day.
