|Just one of the baggies I've come across.|
First I tried the newspaper flowers, thought this was a great idea. I have to admit its a bit time consuming cutting out each layer some only had five others had about twelve,my had was killing me. I really need to find a two or three inch scallop flower punch! even though it was more time consuming I noticed the more layer the better the flower,at least with the newspaper now the ones I made last night with card stock I liked the way the five layers instead of the eight. haha I convinced Sam to cut them out last night since she wanted to make a couple for a friend of hers,so that worked in my favor!
After the flowers I moved on to the ribbon /lace butterflies, this one I had to stitch a little...I only had a little bit of pink ribbon at hand but at least I get an idea of what they will look like. I also tried a couple ribbon flowers those I also had to stitch a little but just enough to gather the ribbon,I think I pulled it just a bit too tight but I still liked how they came out!
I moved on to beads and wire next, the little bead flowers and the wire shapes with he beads I love! they are so simple but really cute! The last thing is a little tag I made out of some old note cards I found in the desk drawer.I just cut it into the shape I wanted added a stamp and a wire hanger with little star beads on it. I think I like this one better then the tags my daughter bought for me,just don't tell her that!
Just about everything I used today came from that baggie but all came from stuff I had just laying around the house,I never realized how easy and fun it would be to make my own embellishments!
