WW - Organza Flowers

I have been wanting to learn how to make my own vintage looking organza flowers, so this weekend I did a quick search online and found this tutorial (I love the Internet).

I rushed up to the nearest Yardage town and grabbed up some organza in colors I thought the girls would enjoy.

Here is the recipe: a source of heat (candle), scissors, organza, beads, thread and needle.
Go to the Tutorial to get specific instructions!


This was my first attempt. Not too shabby if I do say so myself.


Looks pretty good as hair clip!


This was my attempt at making one half the size of the others.


My review:

This is a fun and easy craft that even you non-crafty ones can accomplish with success (watching the organza melt is mesmerizing).

I followed the tutorial for the first one and then tried some different techniques on the ones that followed.

With a little bit of practice and maybe some different material anyone (even you) can create some really cute vintage looking flowers.

I am going to be making them mainly as hair accessories, but you could use them on scrapbook pages, cards and on top of a present!


You can even adorn your poodle!

How cool! I'm tempted to attempt, but I am afraid that it would be a disaster (but I still might try it).

It is used to send bank documents, order forms, weather maps, charts, X-ray photos, newspaper proof pages, fingerprints, telegrams, identification photos, and other documents and papers. In that case too a reverse fax number search facility can come in handy. Focus is not on faxing services. . However, now thanks to our advanced technology, it has made faxing much easier and inexpensive for the companies.
