Improvising on your craft skills

I am a huge fan of paper flowers of course which is why I wrote my book.. but I am a huge fan of flower arrangements and constantly drool over the fresh bouquets and arrangements that I see in magazines.

While making paper flowers I think we should think out of the box and try to mix and match ideas together. Here I have added clay flower to burgundy  bud roses along with green fillers.The arrangement is a gift for my aunt.

 The next arrangement is clay flowers that are mixed together with some artificial succulents which has been my weakness for a while. Check my pin board out for the succulents

You are welcome to pin them onto your  board - how much out of box are you going to think for your next craft project?

Dress up your gift bags or great idea for scrapbookers

A small idea! My daughter wanted to dress up her brown paper bag for her project from school so we put our heads together with all the punches that we had on hand to decor it up.

See what can be achieved with white computer paper,heart punches and a brown paper bag.

Look for  heart punch camellia instructions in my new book.Vary it up with punched out leaves as stamens in the center as in the camellia. You have a new flower under your belt!  Would be great for scrapbooking and adding to a white Xmas handmade cards even. Decor it up!

Look for  the similar heart punch rose instructions in my book!
