So while I was catching up on my favorite morning show Studio 5.
(Yes, it is my favorite show because I get to go on and visit every once in a while)
Anyway-they had this super cute girl on with a super cute tutorial on how to make
Basically, Paper folded flowers.
I thought that they would be a fun project to do with the chickadees cause they were out of school today.
So-we headed up to the scrapbook store and got a pleuthra of paper.
I love this store! I love the paper.
I could spend forever in there, just walking around and touching the paper.
Yes, I know, I am a freak.
What can I say, I LOVE paper! Espescially pretty paper!
I tried to find her tutorial online-no luck.
So I will show and tell you how to do it.
First, what I learned:
Don't do this with your kids unless they are over 10. It was way too hard for 8 and 5.
It probably would have been better if I would have had chocolate,but.....
Use double sided paper and if you don't have 3 of the same sheet-2 of the same with one that matches works ok too.
But, you don't want nice, thick paper.
Ok Supplies that you need:
3 pieces of double sided paper-same if possible
doiles from the dollar store
smaller paper scraps
buttons/brads/some type of doodads to put in the center.
ribbon to hang
First: this is what you need:
Then cut a circle with your pinking sheers and attach to the doiley.
Here is how the rest of mine turned out. These are super easy-quick and addicting.
Don't say I didn't warn you.
Sorry the pics are not the best. But, it has been overcast all day.
I just folded the doiles and added centers.
They I made one double sided some when they were spinning around, they would be pretty from both sides!
Ok-see this most ugly 1974 vegas cabinet?
Truly horrible and gaudy!
It was $15 bucks and I have BIG plans!
Craft room storage for all my paper!
After pics coming soon!
