This weeks blogging challenge was kind of fun. Make it. Simple right?! Pick a pin or project that you have been meaning to do and make it!
I have boards and boards full of ideas and projects on Pinterest just waiting for me to “make them”!
This time around I was looking for something simple and something that I could put my own mark on. And so I started out with this idea via Martha Stewart that I have had on my DIY Paper Crafts pin boardfor some time now!
Martha used cupcake liners to make her paper flowers, but I used one of my all time favorite crafting mediums my vintage encyclopedia book pages instead.
They are simple looking and they were simple to make.
So simple that I made two little bouquets for my house on this rainy snowy day in Wisconsin!
And since I did not follow the tutorial exactly I thought I would share a few details of what I did specifically!
I cut circles with scrapbook scissors and then threaded them onto floral wire I had around my house… must have been from a different project!
I then used just a bit of the floral tape to secure my flower in place. I did this with 3 flowers and then secured them all together to make one large flower.
And finally I secured the wire around a branch.
A simple look and a fun little project right?!
What about you? Do you have projects that you have pinned and then made?! I can’t wait to see them TOMORROW at the “Dog Days of Winter Project Challenge”!
Next weeks challenge is “Love It” so anything Valentines related goes!
