pomander kissing ball

I originally saw something very similar to this on whipperberry.  I wanted to add some tulle and glitter because that is what floats my boat.  It was a very simple project. 

Here is what you need:

Any floral punch would work.  You need 2 per set, 1 to lay flat and one to fold the ends up.
straight pins
netting, I used two layers on this also cut into squares just a bit bigger then the flowers
glitter cardstock

This shows the process.  I took the two papers and stuck a pin through the center.  I found it was easiest to do them each one at a time.  Then put the two layers of tulle underneath and placed it where I wanted and pocked the pin in.  It stays in place very nicely.  I then bent up the petals on the top flower and left the bottom laying flat.  The tulle overlapped a little and just adds to the softness.

I am planning on hanging this from the ceiling in my daughters room, but I think it would be beautiful in a nursery or decorations for a shower or wedding.  

I will be linking this to tatertots and jello tonight.
