cute as a button... ok, that's old. what other pun could i use?

Here's the followup to a previous post that showed the mock-up of a friend's boutonnieres.  We had a fantastic "craft night" filled with good food, great drinks, and the best of friends.  

We all pitched in to make these beauties; I love how people who love this bride so much were all able to contribute to these little gems.  I'm also nuts about the variety each piece has.  Using the different lace for the flowers just happened that way (since I'd fouled up and not bought enough), but I think the end result is much more interesting than if we'd used the same trimming throughout.

Fun fun! I need to have a crafty-girl night soon!

I love the variety in them :)

And, I have those same cups with the yellow flowers. Now we've got those in common, as well as my turquoise with pink flowers. Sheesh. Stop peepin' through my windows. Ha!

I love these! I would never have thought to do anything like that for a boutonniere. I think you have just opened my eyes!
