This crafting stuff is highly addictive!!! I follow a Lovely and Talented friend, Lauren because she has so much knowledge and I learn so much from her…. She makes the MOST beautiful flowers I have ever seen hand made!! Check her blog out… go on, treat yourself! http://laurenscraft.wordpress.com/
So I have been trying to make a hand made flower that isn’t too hideous… Let’s just say… I’ve made piles of them and I usually get fed up, ball them up and throw them at the garbage can but sometimes I miss (I’m no basketball player) and they end up on the floor and my dog Sasha usually eats them LOL!! I have to chase her around the house to get them before she swallows them! LOL!!
So here’s what I have come up with in my lame attempt at impressing my friend Lauren….
Ohhhh and I can’t forget this new little obsession of mine…. Hat Pins! NOW THIS IS A HAT PIN!!! All three beautiful inches of it! LOL!!! I stayed up late last night and made pins while I chatted with a friend on Skype… They are SO fun to make and SO easy!!! Now that I have the pins LOL!!!! I want to shout out a BIG THANK YOU to Kim from The Cutting Garden for letting me know where I could buy them!!! Here’s the link to Kim’s lovely store… http://www.thecuttinggarden.ca/ Check out the beautiful ribbon I used on this card…. Kim has it in stock at her store…. and best of all…. It’s a crazy fantastic price!!! I am so addicted to ribbon! LOL!
So there’s my flower….. Would you believe I made this with a corner punch?? I AM SOOOO Pleased with it It was super easy… I saw a picture of a flower similar to this somewhere on the weird wild web and messed around until I figured out how to make it!
Have a great evening!
