Now on to my projects. Tessa sent me a handful of gorgeous layered flowers to work with. I suppose you could totally use them all on one project, but I had all sorts of plans for these beauties For example, one on a brightly colored but simple card steals the show.
I knew when my daughter saw Tessa's flowers, she was going to want me to make her a big flower hair clip. So I pulled out my Imaginisce i top and got to work making a large Twist Daddy with some bright American Crafts paper that seemed almost a perfect match to this Precocious Paper flower:
I pulled off the red backing once the entire twist was covered and stuck it in the center of the back of my flower...
My daughter loves it and she wants me to use all remaining Precocious Paper flowers for her hair accessories! So I made this layout about my daughter's new clips:
I love the lace and felt combination because it adds so much texture and interest:
But the patterned fabric she has chosen for the flowers are AMAZING too:
