Flower Power Rhymes

A very pretty board for Spring, and interactive too! Great for a door, or it could be translated well onto a horizontal bulletin board. It would leave a lot more room for those big beautiful flowers at the bottom! Here's what you need...
  • PAC57300 - Black 24"x12' Fadeless Paper
  • CTP1041 - Poppin' Patterns Spring Flowers Border
  • CTP1194 - 4" Poppin' Patterns Letters
  • CTP5886 - Jumbo Spring Flowers Cut Outs
  • PAC53841 - Premium Dark Green Posterboard
  • CTP5883 - Spring Flowers Cut Outs
The black paper as a background gives this board a bit more of a funky feel because the colors on the flowers really shine on it. On the smaller flowers at the top I cut them in half down the middle. Then I used foam mounting squares to attach words from a rhyming pair on each half. This gave it a more 3D look. The words I typed on the computer using a font I downloaded online for free and just cut them out. Finally, I made the stems and leaves for the larger flowers by cutting strips of poster board apart for the stem and cutting an almond shape out of it for the leaves. It doesn't have to be perfect, most leaves are not truly identical anyway. Attach them at the bottom and you can add extra flowers at the top to fill in. Don't worry about not having enough stems to match the number of flowers, they would be hiding in the shadows anyway! Happy Spring!
