Hi Ladies, if you are like me I have flowers running out my ears. I thought this would be something fun and helpful.

Rules:

1. You will be sending 6 flowers.
-3 flowers will be hand made and decorated
(doesn't matter how many layers on the
handmade ones)
-3 flowers will be store bought but can be from
your stash at home or you can purchase them
(If you use stackable flowers must have at
least 3 layers but can have more if you
and it has to be 3 separate flowers)

2. You will mail them to me and I will sort them and make sure everybody get 3 handmade and 3 store bought...this is so we get a variety. I will take 2 days to sort and then mail them back to everyone. You will get 6 flowers in all.

3. You have to have them mailed to me by June 17


If you have questions PM me. I will have the list later today of everybody that wants to join this. I also will pm you my addy.


I hope everyone enjoys this!!! XOXO Lavona


This is the list of people I have so far if I forgot anyone or you are not joining in let me know.

It does not bother me in the least if the handmade flowers are punches and stickled .... since me and stickles always fight and I seem to be the one wearing it ...

If you do a search on you tube - handmade flowers .... there are so many easy ones to choose from...

Christine, you're a nut girl....I already told you I had ya covered and besides, I'm sure they looked just fine, but I know what you mean, cause sometimes I'll make something or fix my hair a certain way that I don't think looks right and am not crazy about, but others will say it looks just fine.......anyway, I sent Lavona enough for the both of us!!!!!

Lord knows I have plenty of scrap paper and the few I made didn't even put a dent in it......I actually had alot of fun making them and if I wasn't in all these other challenges that I have to get lo's done for, I'd spend some more time making more, then just have them in my stash for future use or just send to my friends.....in fact as soon as I'm done with 2 more lo's for this month challenges, that's exactly what I'm going to do.

Christine I am sure your flowers are beautiful, its the first time I have made any too, but like Patti Boo I loved doing them, if I had more time and didn't need to get them off I'd do more.

yep--actually the link patti sent me was ms swedens blog--i was trying to make the roses---cut out a swril--i got that part--lol--then flod down the edges--ok-did that--though it was kinda hard on the cardstock---and then roll it up---------ok--thats where i got lost--roll up from the outside--kinda looked ok--but my paper tore 2xs--roll up from the inside--apparently that is wrong cause it didnt look right at all!! i tried on 6 flowers--------and threw in the towel--i might (i say might) try again--when i have a little more patience to deal with it------i think i got so frustrated--it was driving me nuts and i said forget it!!!

I didn't try the roses yet.....I made the strip flowers and the folded fan ones...the strip ones were easy peasy....the folded ones were easy, but tedious cause the folds can only be teeny tiny or the flowere will be too thick....I saw another tutorial on Swirlydoos for the roses that I might try....they used cardstock and a few of the ladies said they had a hard time with the cardstock, but then another lady used coffee filters....yup, you heard right, coffee filters, then used glimmer mist to color them and they looked awesome and were easier to make cause coffee filters are more pliable. BTW, the flat cone shaped coffee filters.

I'll try those when I have some glimmer mist to color them, plus I want to use some of my scraps up too....

I finished mine, and I am going to get them postal ASAP. The problem is, I'll have to bring all three kids with me to the Post Office, and I may end up postal myself after waiting in line with them. They'll be mailed before the deadline though. LOL I'll put a photo up of them on the 14th because I used design team paper to make them and I can't post them before the reveal date.

I sent mine out today. I'm scared. Sounds like most of you are professional flower makers...I'm not...I confess I haven't made them before. So no one better laugh at them when you get them.

Patti Poo...if I had known that you would make extras for your fellow sistas...I'd have had you make some for me

But I am inspired to go check out how to make some flowers!!! and work on this...in case there is another swap...I'll be ready!

Laurie, I'm sure they're fine....Did you get the link to Miss Sweden's website called Scrap-a-little.com.....you should check it out...she's got some really easy to follow tutorials on a variety of different flowers...It's a great way to use up scraps.

Also go over the the Swirlydoos website and click on their tutorial section....there are a few there too....

Alda you didn't have to fed them you could have just mailed them. I am still waiting on a few. It was no rush really just wanted to give a date.

Good Rebbeca I am glad you had fun. I am loving seeing all the beautiful flowers in person!!!

Lavona, (and girls!)

I'm not going to be able to get to the post office any time before the 30th, and I don't want to hold up the swap. We are having car/money issues, and I wanted to let you know up front. I don't want to be a flaker! I'll still send them to you later, and you can have them for yourself if you want. I am really so very sorry. Life just has gotten in the way!

Hugs,
Heather

I'm making flowers in bulk. Sometimes I'm stuck with a LO, but still wanne do something creative. That's when I make embellies (flowers, butterflies, swirls), or trying some new techniques and/or products.
