DIY Twine Valentine’s Heart

Hi Friends I have fun little tutorial for Valentine’s day for you, a DIY Twine Valentine’s Heart.  I can’t believe this is my first craft for 2015, the kids are still out of school and Christmas was just put away so I am slowly getting back into the swing of things.  Although I am behind, I have to admit, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed a little time off and enjoying it with family!

Crepe paper flowers

I am so happy to be part of the Fourteen Days of Crafting!

I made these cute and easy flowers using crepe paper from the dollar store and hot glue, super easy!

 Take your crepe paper and start to wrap it around to form your flower. Add a dab of hot glue at the bottom every couple of inches to hold the flower in place.

Begin pulling the top back a little to open the flower up.  Keep going until you are happy with the size of the flower. Now you can fluff the flower out completely.

Don’t forget to check out the rest of the great ideas being shared throughout this week by these amazing and fabulous ladies.

Paper Napkin Flowers~Tutorial~

~Hi Friends~

I am so happy it is Friday!  Time to relax and hang out with family and friends, YAY!  I made some paper flowers during the week using some napkins, so simple, perfect for adding a splash of color for Valentines Day.

Buy some colorful napkins in different sizes, I found mine at the dollar store.

Scallop the edges with some scissors. Unfold and stack the napkins on top of each other, the smallest napkins goes last.  (I used 4 napkins but you could use more or less depending upon how big or small you want your flowers to be)

How to make a paper flower

Begin flipping and folding, like an accordion.

Pinch the center and Tie a ribbon in the middle to keep it together. IMG_6187

Begin “fluffing” the flower by peeling each layer up, careful you don’t rip the paper.
