Flowers and More Flowers

My BFF, Stephanie, is having a pixie (Tinker Bell) party for her daughter's 7th birthday this weekend. She asked me if I wanted to help and I told her to pass whatever she wanted my way. So, yesterday she showed up at my house with a bag full of supplies asking to help her make some hair clips and tissue paper flowers.

Task number one take these supplies...

...and turn them into beautiful hair clips. So I spent about an hour and a half of quality time with my glue gun and this is what I got.

Pretty! Yes? I was so happy with the way they turned out! The metallic butterflies turned out so beautiful on the flowers!

With task number one completed, very successfully I might add, it was on to task number two, tissue paper flowers. Supplies included tissue paper and pipe cleaners.

Cut the tissue into rectangles, do a quick accordion fold, wrap a pipe cleaner around it, pull them open and you get flowers! Of course you can mix it up a bit by using multiple colors and trimming the ends differently.

Pretty! Here's a few of my favorites.

You would think after all that fun I would be done for the day but no such luck. After all that I went over to Stephanie's house and we continued folding paper flowers until about 11 pm! All that crafty fun fit in to just one day!


  1. Wow those are so pretty! How come you never come to my house to help me with crafty stuff??? *sob* Guess you better go home now huh?
