I just 'played'. The white and blue flowers are made with a punch. I folded the white one accordion style, the blue one I simply 'smushed'. A narrow piece of silk I had on hand is gathered by hand with a needle running stitch, pulled tight and tied off. Another earring became the centre. I'm quite enamored with the brown paper/newsprint ones. I think they have great potential for shabby chick parcels, cards, etc. Does anyone else have other techniques for making flowers? I would love to hear. I'm hooked now, and will probably make a little box full when the studio is up and running. That way I will have them on hand for all sorts of occasions.
A little mail art was part of my day as well. I'm going to stop for awhile now ... and await my mail box to fill up. It's been great fun. I am discovering decorating envelopes is a delightful pass time.
