I was just scrapbook shopping at Walmart and I wanted to do a layout with flowers bordering around the entire lo. Well as you all know those packs of flowers are abot 4 to 5$ and you only get about 6 flowers.
Sooooooo I bought a fake bouquet of them. It was only 2$ and has about 40 flowers. They are super easy to pull right off and use on your page or card.
I also bought 5 jars of mandrin oranges cause the glass jars were so cute I want to use them as storage. DH was like geezzzz enough oranges and I was like yeah, the kids love them. lol
GREAT tip!! Silk flowers ARE a great, inexpensive way to use flowers...smart thinking! LOL, I'm cracking up at the mandarin oranges!!!!!! OMG, too funny!! Kayson loves mandarins, so I could probably pull that past DH without him asking. hahaha!!

that is a great idea! i didnt even think of that! i always walk by the little flowers and think to myself "thats way to much money for 4 stinkin flowers" and i really laughed out loud to the comment to your DH!! haha
Great tip!! Not sure what flowers you are talking about that are so expensive, but sounds like the fake ones are a much better deal. Funny bout the jars too.

LOL at the mandarin oranges. DD loves them. DH loves the jars! And we used some of those jars for a craft project with my Girl Scout troop (we filled them with colored, scented Epsom salts).
