GIRLY GIRL ORGANZA FLOWERS

Not only do I love PINK, but deep down inside, I have always been a girly girl.  I have always and still do to this day, love ruffles, things that sparkle, pastel colors, wearing dresses and any kind of jewelry.  When I saw this video on Utube, I immediately went out to get the supplies that I needed to try to make them.  I'm pretty happy with how they turned out.  I've never been one to shy away from something that may not be 'trendy' so whether wearing flowers is "in" or not, I know I am still going to enjoy wearing my flowers.


The aqua and black flower has just been set on a white background so you can see the black.



I attached a simple pin to the back to be able to wear the flower on any piece of clothing.


I did burn myself a couple of times but it was well worth it in order to learn how to create these pretties.  If you decide to try them, make sure you heed the advice of Bethany about keeping the water bowl close by ... I won't go into any details but suffice it to say, I certainly was glad to have taken her advice seriously!

Thanks for stopping by.
