Next I started arranging the succulents. I used the wire cutters I found in my floral arranging kit to cut the stems on some of the succulents as I was sticking them in.


I just kind of played around with them until they looked right. ;)

Next I printed out these sweet sayings on some white cardstock, & then punched them out with a circle punch. You can print out a copy of these sweet sayings {HERE}.

I then hot glued them onto some floral picks.
