Spring Kissing Balls

Here's another fun way to decorate for Spring!  I made these kissing balls after I made the Faberge Inspired Easter Eggs, but this time I got lazy smart and used my Cricut to cut out the petals instead of a hand punch.  Yay for working smart, not hard.  :) 
 
This is what I used:
4 inch Styrofoam balls
corsage pins (Michaels has the best corsage pins!  Other ones I found looked and felt cheap.)
cardstock
Walk in the Garden Cricut cartridge 
 I used a daisy setting on the cartridge and cut these out at 3/4 inches.
 I used the same setting for the other two flower balls but changed
the size to 1 inch. 
The bigger the flowers, the fewer pins to use, but I wouldn't go any bigger than 1 inch when using a 4 inch Styrofoam ball. 
I used 1 box (150 pins) on the 3/4 inch petals and about 115 pins for
the 1 inch ones.
There you go!  These are SO easy and a fun way to get excited for Spring!

P.S. This is the last week to enter our giveway! Check it out!
Have fun!
