crafting frenzy making square wreaths. I wanted to finish them up in a hurry (my sister and I like to do crafts that look like they took a long time to make but actually were made up quickly) and I didn't know what kind of decorations to put on this one particular square wreath I was making for my granddaughter. Then I had a flash of inspiration, got out some scrapbook paper, and cut a sort of flower shape - freehand of course, because making a pattern would take too long. Scrapbook paper:
So here is one version of a paper flower. Then, I had to fool around a little with papers and magazines I found laying around. I found a very cool catalog I had. Here are some flowers I made from that. Here is a paper and yarn flower and a paper and yoyo flower. You can learn to make yoyo's from this blog or you can look on Youtube for a video. Search for "Fabric Yoyos". There's lots of videos showing how to make them. Beware: They are addictive to make. For the "flower" with the kitty button, I took yarn and wrapped it around 3 fingers and kept wrapping it until it was puffy and then tied it in the middle and puffed it out. Then I glued it onto a paper cut out flower and added the kitty button. Easy peasy and fun.
