Handmade flowers

Post by kimb on Fri 21 May 2010 - 9:36





I made these yesterday ,ive been wanting to have a go for ages and i found some netting and organza from when i used to do wedding things years ago (all gold) so cracked on with some . Its great fun melting the edge of the organza over a candle flame but not when it melts too much and goes on your hands>.ouch !! or when it settles on the expensive resin table outside and will not come off ,leaving black miolten lumps everywhere ....steve not seen that yet . affraid

Kim they're fab! Would be great as corsages for weddings, and that purple is luscious!

No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date  Laughing

You read my mind, was wondering about the size lol.
They are gorgeous, especially like the two on the bottom pic.

As for the table - deny all knowledge

Phew, I was going to suggest trying to put an ice pack on them to see if they chip off. Purple and lemon ones are my faves, very very usable these, yum.

Oh lovely KIm, I won't tell you how much I paid for a fascinator in Claires acc today, and they were cheap compared to other shops. There were some not unlike your lovely flowers and no where near as nice as these.
