Spring is around the corner and our lovely contributor, Miss Jen of Blessed Femina is sharing a wonderful craft idea that will brighten up your home for the new season:
Alluring rain drops have been falling continually where
we are and I am enjoying these last days
with beautiful music, rich Bible verses and
I am happily taking up
my crochet hook again...
remembering its many sweet benefits and delights.
A fresh new ball of crisp, silky blue
yarn... put to good use...
Paper Bouquets abound...
Here is a Short Tutorial for the
~What You Will Need~
-Beautiful Colored Tissue Paper
-Green Stem Wire or Green Pipe Cleaner
-Green Flower Tape or Satin Ribbon
Cut a few pieces (about 4-6) of tissue paper (crepe paper)
about 8 x 10 inches (the exact size doesn't matter).
Put the paper in a pile and fold it like an accordion.
Cut the edges straight or to add a special touch
scallop the edges prettily. ;)
Tie the center of the folded paper with green stem wire,
green pipe cleaner (or twist tie).
Gently pull each piece of paper towards the top center of the flower,
separating each sheet of paper from the others (forming the petals of the flower).
Once you have made your desired amount of flowers (4-6)
simply clump into a bouquet and wrap with green flower tape
and a satin ribbon (if desired)
...you have just made a Lovely Paper Flower
These lovely paper flower
arrangements are ideal for...
Table centerpieces, festive parties,
wedding~rehearsal bouquets, ;)
and gorgeous atop special presents.
Hope all of you are having a Beautiful Week...

you do, do it all for the glory of God"
