Hi, all. I’ve been dancing on a cloud with excitement since I won the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays last week. Thank you SO much to all my friends and visitors who sent me a lot of congratulations. I know it’s definitely not the end of my crafting career, but it’s a chance for me to put myself into the work harder than ever. It seems my excitement won’t fade away from me for a while, though. 😉
So before it’s gone, I’d like to share my happiness with paper flowers that I made several months ago. I got some inspiration from Claire’s blog, and I started trying to make them right after I saw her artwork. Of course my first try didn’t look like the picture(above) at all. Even though Claire showed me how to make paper flowers with detailed photos on her post, I still had difficulty finding my own way to get it done.
Whew… For some reason, it’s so difficult for me to understand instruction manuals which even have pictures in it. Is anyone in the same shoes as I am? That’s why I’ve never read the manuals after I’ve gotten new technologies such as a MacBook, a Silhouette SD, a FUJI X10, an iPhone, and so on. Oh, sorry! I think I strayed off the topic. 😉
Hey, now I’m back to my project. For making paper flowers, we need a tiny circle punch, a glue gun, a flower punch, paper, wire, and floral tape. The most challenging and irritating part was sticking the wire with hot glue to the back side of the paper flowers. If anyone wants to try it out, I strongly recommend that you visit Claire’s blog to see the whole process. I’m sure you’ll understand it even though it’s Korean. At least you can figure out what Korean letters look like compared with English or other languages.
As you can see in the photo, I put my paper flowers in a beautiful vase which I got from Anthropologie on sale. Isn’t it gorgeous? If you were to visit my place and see it a closer view, you would want to get it and put it on your table. Then it would stay with you forever. If so, why don’t you try to make them yourself this weekend? Looking forward to seeing your work! By the way, I’m going to enter my paper flowers into the Make It Monday #104 for sharing with other ladies.
That’s all I have for you today. Hope you like my paper flowers and get some ideas from my blog. Have a great Father’s day weekend!
