Aster Build a Flower blogpostBuild-A-Flower: Aster

With their wildflower beauty and lush texture, asters have long been considered an enchanted flower. The name aster is derived from the Greek word for ‘star' and its star-like flowers can be found in a rainbow of colors – white, red, pink, purple, lavender and blue, with mostly yellow centers. The September birth flower, asters also hold the honor of being the 20th wedding anniversary flower. This gorgeous bloom can be stamped in multi-layers, embossed, colored with markers or watercolor, used as a background-builder, and the possibilities are endless. It is a must-have for your build-a-flower collection!

Some of our talented design team members have created some stunning projects to spark your creativity using the new Build-A-Flower: Aster set. We hope you love what they have come up with:
