NEW!!! Swanky Bloom Instructions

Cute doesn't even begin to explain these adorably dainty Swanky Blooms. I love them so much I am considering clipping them to dowels and creating my very own Swanky Bloom Garden. Who wouldn't want hot pink and zebra flowers lining their driveway or filling the flowerbed??? I'm thinking Mother Nature missed the mark on this one.
Instructions available at No Bow... No Go!
