On my craft table...

Lots of punched flowers for our niece's wedding...

Big punch, little punch, some pinched, some flat, then layered and glued with a rhinestone center. Easy!
More wedding-ish flowers. These were larger and I used various sizes of circles, cut with decorative scissors, scrunched them, layered and glued with a rhinestone brad in the center.
And when I should have been doing something else, I was playing around with an idea I have for a new blog banner... Not quite there...I have a few more ideas...
What's on your craft table {or on your writing pad, or in your camera...} right now?

beautiful flowers

I've had my beading stuff out - not done any since 2008. When I was shopping with my sister she was looking at some summer necklaces and I said - I could make you one of them - so I got out the stash

I love your idea for new blog banner :) I say do it! Very pretty flowers too.

Amy said...

I'm really liking the big fluffy flowers, but, can't wait for the new header if these guys are involved!

Sian said...

Maybe easy, but it takes a dedicated and loving aunt to set herself to make a lot of them!

I am working on a couple of layouts at the minute

Your niece is one very lucky girl. And the new blog banner is quite intriguing!

on my craft table is clutter at the moment, I just had a whole shelf fall down taking with it parts of drywall - - maybe repainting is necessary - - YeSSSSS!!!!

That blog header will be so cute.
Working on a Halloween mini album myself.

Another huge fan of the paper turtle chain! I love those big flowers! I cleaned off my desk while I watch the first half of men's finals last night so it's clean for the moment. (The game was so bad, I got to bed earlier than I expected.)

Did anyone else immediately think 'Big punch. Little punch. Cardboard box.' No? Just me?

*sigh*

It's the way my mind works.

Love these embellishments/wedding flowers/pretties though. They look stunning!

Lovely flowers. That turtle paper chain is adorable. I just posted a picture of my messy workdesk.

Lizzie said...

Such sweet little turtles... awww... The new blog header will be ace!

The flowers are beautiful. Maybe when you have time, you might explain a bit more about how you make the big ones?

My desk is covered in bits of book-binding, for the various orders I have on the go. My workbasket is no longer filled with socks... now I am making a bunting string, for my new baby gt. niece.

humel said...

Oh, *pretty* flowers!! And those large ones would look fab made out of pages from vintage children's books.... ;-)

Margaret said...

Don't you remember: You're not supposed to bring something to a wedding that might be prettier than the bride. (No offense intended to the bride, of course.) Just trying to make a point about the cuteness of it all.

cate said...

loving the punched flowers - so simple and elegant with that little pop of lilac. Can't wait to see if the paper chain makes it into the new header.
