Hello and welcome to Scrap N Grow. The start of a new month signals the unveiling of a new Paperie in Bloom bouquet. If you are new to Scrap N Grow, Paperie in Bloom is a monthly blog series where every month on or about the first of each month, a new 3D blooming bouquet hand crafted from paper is showcased. Then throughout the month, additional projects that highlight the bloom of the month are featured. This month’s blooming bouquet are Snowdrops, a true harbinger of Spring.
These beautiful snowdrops were created with die cuts from Provocraft’s Giant Flowers Cricut cartridge. The snowdrops stems were made from floral wire and the center stamens are actual vintage pips. Pictured below is a close up.

Though spring is yet a few months off here in MN, these Snowdrops provide me hope that spring will soon be here. Thank you so much for stopping by. I would love to hear if you grow Snowdrops yourself of if they are currently blooming where you live. Stay tuned throughout the month of January for additional Snowdrop inspired projects. I will be back tomorrow with a simple thank you card. See you then.
Hello everyone and happy Friday! I can hardly believe that today is November 1st already and that this weekend,Sunday is the end of daylight savings time for many of us. I will take advantage of the extra hour of sleep for sure.
The start of a new month also means a new Paperie in Bloom bouquet. Paperie in Bloom is a monthly blog series here at Scrap N Grow. Each month I featured a new bloom hand crafted from paper. Then throughout the month, I feature additional projects that showcase the chosen bloom of the month. Until our ongoing home remodel project is complete (fingers crossed that we will be done by month end), additional featured projects have been temporarily placed on hold as my free time has been consumed with our basement to do list.
November’s Paperie in Bloom bouquet is dedicated to my mother who passed suddenly 7 years ago this month.
This month’s bouquet features an old fashion bouquet of marigolds in a vintage pitcher that I inherited from my mother.
Marigolds bring me back to my early childhood and gardening days. For every spring, my mom would let me pick out some flowers at the nursery to plant and care for. I often picked marigolds per my mother’s advice because they were easy to grow and care for and they were season long bloomers. Today, there is a vast array of marigold varieties available in shades of orange, reds, and yellows. I chose to recreate a button or pom pom variety of marigolds in orange and yellow. I have included a supply list and photo tutorial for you below.
I am ecstatic about how this month’s bouquet turned out. I hope you have enjoyed it too. I will admit, their were several tearful moments while creating these, as I was reminiscing of fond memories that I shared my mom while she was here.
Finally and lastly, I also wish to extend a “Heartfelt Thanks” to you, my reader’s and followers of Scrap N Grow. You have been so supportive since I started blogging in 2012. I am very grateful to every single person who visits Scrap N Grow. I love all your comments and suggestions (keep them coming!). Thank you! Thank you so much!
Have a great weekend everyone! I will be back next week with more creative inspiration.

October’s Paperie in Bloom bouquet features a unique bloom/flower called a Chinese Lantern.
These delicate, paper like annual flowers are aptly named for they resemble a dimly lit lantern. These flowers are often grown for use in dried floral arrangements or for a vase filler.
I hope you enjoyed this month’s featured Paperie In Bloom bouquet featuring Chinese Lanterns. I will be back soon with more inspiring creations. Have a great day and thank you so much for taking time to stop by.
