Hi. I hope you are all having a great weekend. I haven't had much chance to craft.We had a baby shower and a birthday party yesterday. In between we were looking at vehicles. It is exhausting trying to absorb all the information, but I'm learning what I like and don't like. I also never used to speak up when I didn't like something, but not anymore! I have finally found my voice. I've learned to tell the salesman right away when he is trying to steer me to something I don't want.
Oh well enough of this. I'm not looking forward to the next car shopping expedition.
I did make a paper flower. What a surprise! lol
Someone on the MB posted about making life size roses. I can't remember who it was, sorry. I tracked back about 20 pages and couldn't find the post. Anyway I decided to try it.
This flower is from Flower Shoppe, Fun 1 cut at 10.56. The leaves are Fun 5 cut at 3.5. I have trouble making these spiral flowers so big. I really wanted the center smaller and next time I will start the rolling smaller.
So I decided to turn it int o a candlestick holder. Of course, it will have to be a battery operated one but I think it's a pretty good idea. You could make them for all occasions and holidays and they wouldn't cost a fortune.
You could decorate for anything with all the beautiful papers we have to choose from.
Take a look and let me know what you think.
