It took me a second or two to realize the flowers on the cover of the Occassions Catalog were made of paper. I bought the kit and wanted to have this displayed at my Open House yesterday. I had fun putting this together. I will tell you it takes a lot of time to complete and you will have a lot of bonding time with your hot glue gun! But when it's done, you will have a beautiful vase of flowers that will not wilt or die!
