I'm sure those words come out of my mouth daily. At least once. I was looking through pictures on my computer and came across some I took a while back and never posted of a Pinterest inspired project.
Before continuing, you must agree, cross your heart and pinky swear not to laugh, make fun, of or otherwise judge my fingers, fingernails, or any other part of my very non pampered hands. Agreed? OK, carry on.
Above is a photo of the Pin (Original Source).
And below is my copycat version.
They were super easy to make and didn't cost a thing, since I used leftover tissue paper from my sewing room pompoms.
To make these you need tissue paper and wire. I used bread ties.
Cut circles from stacks of tissue paper. I think my circles were about 3 inches in diameter with 8 layers of paper. Don't worry about perfection.
Fold the stack of circles in half, then in half again.
Round off the edges so that you have what looks like ice cream on a cone.
Stop judging my fingers. You can't get lotion in this part of North Carolina. We're very remote. Yea, that's my story.
Unfold and you magically have flower petals. Arrange the layers so that the petals alternate.
Continue pinching and separating until you have what looks like a flower.
And when you are finished you can put them in a wooden dough bowl with a candle.
Just to prove you can recreate a Pin. That's why I did it.
