Grow Zinnias

Hello and welcome ! 
Sharing a Mother's day themed gift set today on the Spellbinders Blog.

Bright and bold zinnias have been featured in my family's gardens for as long as I can remember ,so it was a great pleasure to make this bright orange bloom with the Create-a -Flower Zinnia die set.

Grow Zinnias

Here's a close up of the Zinnia :)

I added a small shovel, gardening gloves and a package of zinnia seeds in the flower pot before wrapping it with cellophane.
The step by step instructions for this project are on the Spellbinders blog :)
