There is nothing I love more than plant crafts.  I love it so much, I have an entire page dedicated to it.  

And when those plants can become cheerful springy flowers, it is all the better!  Today, I am sharing my Large Flower Ampersand Sign that I created for Oriental Trading’s FUN365 site.

I am so excited about all the gorgeous faux flowers that Oriental Trading now has available.  When I saw this stunning peach magnolia bloom, I knew it was a match made in heaven.  I love that is gives my project almost a Vintage Ampersand Sign feel to it.

At some point during the crafting of this project, I stopped to contemplate the ampersand symbol and asked myself, “What even is an ampersand sign?”  In modern times, it is used in place of an “and” and we don’t really think much of it.
 
However, as per Wikipedia, “It was also common practice to add the “&” sign at the end of the alphabet as if it were the 27th letter, pronounced as the Latin etor later in English as and. As a result, the recitation of the alphabet would end in “X, Y, Z, and per se and”. This last phrase was routinely slurred to “ampersand” and the term had entered common English usage by 1837.”

Now, if you think you might make this project – don’t forget to pin this project now and save it for your next big crafting session!
