Flowers? For Me?

Okay, so no one actually got me flowers. I made them!

How could I resist when Shade Clothing posted this super cute tutorial on their blog?

Sorry for the bad lighting, took these pictures last night.

Tips for this project - 1. Have a buddy with you to make an assembly line. It definitely gets a little long when you're cutting and gluing. 2. Use glue dots. Glue works too, but it takes a very long time to wait for it to dry in each spot. I know! 3. Find double sided scrapbook paper. The insides of the flowers definitely show and it would be much cuter with a pattern then plain ol' white.

The blog also has some other cute Valentine-y ideas. But my next project will be a Valentine's sNACK for my neighbors. Want a preview? I bet you wish you lived in my vicinity, because those look extra tasty. Boxed up in a Zebra Valentine treat box from Mama Cavanaugh, is what I call perfection.
