homemade from the garden

This is a pen vase I made my mother-in-law for Christmas.  She loves roses.  I had made these before with daisies as the flower, but when I saw these roses at Michaels I had to try and make this for her. 

I hollowed out the roses with a hot knife and then hot glued them to the end of an RSVP pen.  I filled the inside of the pen with green Bazzill Paper (sorry, sis-I know there must be a law against that somewhere) and filled the vase with blue, silver and clear pebbles.  I tied a green ribbon on under the rose and then spritzed the roses with Glimmer Mist (dazzling diamonds).  I finished up by tying a tule bow around the base with an angel ornament for accent.  I hope she likes it...
