Wow, I have been neglecting my blog! I am hoping to have more time for my crafts now! I miss them and all my blogger friends! :) Robyn at My Pink Stamper has given some challenges to make this weekend even more fun. Challenge 4 is to create a Mother's Day themed project...
Today I hosted a Mother's Day brunch for my mother and my Aunt. We are very close with my Aunt and Uncle and it was important to me to recognize that special relationship.
I created napkin rings with Coredinations Whitewash collection. (I only had one page of each color and nobody local had any more so I had to make 2 colors.) I also created place cards using tinfoil and my new Big Kick!!!
Under the photos I put a brief tutorial on how I made the paper flower. I am beginning to think everyone else in the world knows how to do them and I was alone in not know though!
How to create paper flowers.
1. Cut a 5" x 5" square of cardstock.
2. Cut that into a circle, mine wasn't a circle at all I am cutting challenged but my shape worked :)
3. Cut around the circle in a spiral. I made my edges raggedy and rounded to give the flower a more flowery look in the end.
5. At the end of the spiral I had left a small circle in the center. I glued the flower to that using a ton of tacky glue. I held it in place for a bit and it stayed nicely.
I was actually pretty excited by how well these held up and they are going to work again in the future because they were quite durable!!! I used a glue dot and attached them to ribbon to make napkin rings.
For some other challenges I am linking up to:
