{week 42} paper flowers

Happy Mother’s Day to the UK mums. To celebrate I made these pretty flowers for the table today as I was cooking lunch for my mum and mother-in-law. We had blueberry cheesecake for dessert – it was so so so good. Recipe here if you want to try it. Anyway… on to the craft.

Paper flowers for Mother's Day

Karen suggested I try making paper flowers in the comments for my stamp making post. I got the general inspiration from this instructuable but I made mine a little differently as you can see from the photos. I followed the same basic steps – cut petals out of paper, screwed them up and shaped them into petals. I used old faithful mod podge to stick them together into flower shapes and a screwed up ball of paper for the centres. Then I used hot glue to stick them to twigs. A perfect Mother’s Day table display.
