Somewhere in the middle of the growth spurt, I realized that Memory Box’s Fresh Daisies die cut would make a great armature for balloons if I covered up the flower heads with some stamped, cut out balloons. So that’s what I did, pop-dotting the balloons for added dimension. The flower stems became balloon strings which I painted black and glued over the Flower Boy’s right arm. On another scrap of cardstock, I stamped and embossed just his right arm (yes, we’re talkin’ tiny here), cut it out, pop-dotted it and glued it over the balloon strings. Magic! At least until some very excited three-year old little fingers get a hold of it . . .
