It's Sunday! What a great week we've had! Adam has been working so hard on the outside of our house working on finishing the siding on the back of the house. Our renovation has been a four year process so getting this done this summer is a relief I think for all of us:)
Anyhow, you aren't stopping by for a family update...you want paper crafting!!! If you're a party planner or a blog hopper you've seen these flowers all over! I have made these before but made them WRONG! I tried just using adhesive and of course it fell apart. I finally thought of a different way (shown in the video) that made it so much easier! I'm sure it isn't a "Heather original" idea, but coming up with this alternative sure made me happy!
The bottom flower uses 20 inches of 1 inch paper strips. (I used a 12 inch strip and an 8 inch strip). The middle flower uses 24 inches of 1 1/2 inch paper strips. The biggest flower is a 2 inch radius and uses 24 inches. They are all scored at 1/2 inch increments. I then accordian folded the paper and hole punched near the middle edge using the crop-o-dile. I then threaded linen thread through the holes and tied it shut. I adhered the seams together with sticky strip so the paper made a complete circle. (again, check out the video for a more complete explanation of how to make these little gems:)
