Best Creation "Handmade Spring Flowers" HOP

Hello and welcome! If you are just stopping by we are hopping today with the design team for Best Creation . Start at the beginning with Jona's blog.

Our theme today is "Creating Handmade Spring Flowers" On each blog you will find lots of incredible projects and ways to create and use spring flowers that you can make yourself! In order to win our Grand Prize be sure and collect the kinds of flowers made on each blog and send the list to teresa@bestcreation.us.
Also be sure and leave comments along your way on each of our DTs. blogs and especially on the Best Creation blog at the end of the hop. Be sure and check out http://www.bestcreationinc.blogspot.com/ for the list of prizes you are going to win.


I am going to show you how to make this folded poinsettia-like flower.




Cut out 5 or 6 lemon shapes like below. The size can vary depending on how big or small you want your flower. Mine are a little over 2 inches long.


Now fold all of your petals in half.


Fold the top edge on both sides down to the bottom.


Now fold your petal in half length-wise. Arrange all of your petals on a small circle covered in sticky double sided tape to resemble a flower.


Top the center with a pearl, bling or whatever you want and you're done! I used a small chipboard piece from Best Creation's Bunny Love collection.


Here is my completed layout using my FAVORITE new collection from Best Creation called Jubilee! My poor little neice bumped her face on her sister's head. I still think she's a doll, bruises and all. :)


Now, hop on over to Jodi Wilton's blog to see what flower she is making!
