A Peek at New Prima!

The Floret Collection
So, you'd like to know what is new with Prima Flowers? We've got answers!

We expect to receive a huge order of new Prima within this next week (February 21 -25). Below are a few examples from the collections that we will have!

The Gatsby Collection:

The Dechire Collection:

The De Soie Collection:

The Fitzgerald Collection:

The Flower Sculpture Collection:

The Heart Desire Collection:

The Trinket Collection:

I think flowers are fun because they are a reminder of Spring (when my birthday is)! I always feel more energized in Spring - the weather is temperate, the sun is out, and the trees & flowers look stunning!

Some ideas of what to do with flowers:
-Obviously: add to embellish any card for some floral beauty
-Use for something more abstract like hair, eyes, mouth, etc. on a creation
-Chain them together with Flower Soft Wire to make a custom ribbon for a tag or gift
-Create a centerpiece for each holiday & season
-Decorate an Easter Basket!
-Attach to a wreath for something cheery on your door
-Use a lot of one flower color to spell something out or make a design and fill in the rest with a contrasting color (maybe something simple like "Hi" or a heart)
-Buy a Configurations box and add flowers
-Make a mobile for someone having a baby (just make sure to sew on to the ribbon well!)
-Use with other embellishments like gems, faux snow, butterflies, & brads for a custom design
-Add glossy accents to make them shine or add UTEE clear & mold them into different shapes

  3. There's lots that can be done with Prima flowers. I add stickles to them, ink them, create bouquets with them, make little pieces of jewellery... the list goes on. :)

  4. Prima just gets more & more gorgeous! Right now I am doing a either a layout or a mini book (haven't decided which yet) for a friend who just had a baby. These would be perfect as embellies! They would make the beautiful finishing touch.

  5. I agree, what can´t we do with these gorgeous flwers?? I can think of a million things to use them for, but I guess, it´ll be too long a post to mention them all ha ha ha.
    But right now, I´m onto making some great calendars for many friends with different styles of flowers on them, and it just makes them perfect, and I can sure see loads of possibilities in these new ones here. They´re just gorgeous. I just love flowers, they always makes me feel in a much better mood.

  7. WOW what great Prima flowers! I'm usually just a card maker, but these flowers are pretty enough to be used to make some really adorable headgear and fashion accessories! =D Thanks for the chance to win!

  8. I've redecorated two lamp shades by adding prima flowers and diamante sprays, and they look amazing. Always remember to use a low watt energy bulb when attaching items to enhance lamps etc.

  14. Well I just stopped over to check out these most gorgeous flowers and had no idea about blog candy! I have some of the large Sizzix storage boxes for my numerous dies and want to alter all of them. For sure, I would use these flowers to pretty up these boxes! Lovely flowers!

  19. Oh my - how about new hair clips, brooches, ad a magnet and you have a beautiful refrigerator magnet. I need to make some gifts for administrative assistant day and I'm sure these might be attached to paper clips or pens to make an extra pretty desk set!

  20. I am suprised, that you don't mention Primas stamps. They are created to stamp patterns on flowers ;) I think it's a great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  21. These new Prima flowers are so beautiful - just love it! What can be created with them - everything? I'm sure. Just add it to a card for spring look, or any frame will be amazing with any of them. another idea - embelishment for curtain, or for a hat or for any dress... in fact I cna not find a thing which can be WITHOUT a flower!

    ReplyDelete
  22. You could put them on some type of decorative leaf vine....then put them over a door or up a handrail by some stairs, etc.!

    Or put them on a piece of shaped chipboard and add it as wall art!

    ReplyDelete
  23. My favorite thing to make with Prima flowers is home decor items so I can see them :)

  43. I just know they would look just gorgeous if you were to use quite a few of them to create a flower bed at a gazebo like structure and a fairy or two...
