Home Decor Project: 3D Wall Art

Started this project several months ago and finally finished it.
We bought a king sized bed a while back and when I was shopping for comforters I ended up purchasing this black and tan one.  It was on clearance AND I could use a coupon.  Super good deal. I liked others better but the price could not be beaten and it appeared durable for two little boys who like to come in and cuddle with us.  Anyway, the room needed color and I came up with this crazy plan to make some 3D wall art...

 Here's how I made them...

Purchased canvases in a pack at Michael's. They come in black, but were cheaper to buy white and paint the edges since I already has the black paint.

I bought tan papers at Hobby Lobby.
Took 1/4 inch off the sides so the black would show on the canvases.
I inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
I adhered them with my ATG.
Note: that alone will NOT keep the paper on...

I forgot to take photos during the assembly stage.
I planned out the panels.
I wanted a different flower on each of the panels for interest.
I used a screwdriver to stab holes in the canvases and then put the flowers through.
I trimmed off the backs and then hot glued the HECK out of them!  
I also put little dabs of hot glue to secure the paper in discreet places under leaves. etc.
I added gems here and there.
I hung them on the wall using Command Strips rather than nails.

Not too shabby and the Hubs actually liked them.  
Definitely different!
The cost with coupons and sales was about $30 
until I decided to use the Command strips which added $8

I am entering this project into Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge

Found you on the SSS challenge blog and I just had to pop in & tell you how much I love this wall art! What did you use for the flowers? Are they just artificial ones? It's beautiful!
