Ok, I know those aren't the exact words, but I've only got so much space, ya know. :)
I'm calling this a fantasy flower since I'm not so sure it really resembles a rose. A couple of days ago while buried in the white stuff, I decided to experiment with making a rose/fantasy flower out of 1 1/2" wired ribbon. I've seen this done before, where you fold the ribbon in half then sew a running stitch down the non-folded edge, gather it up and roll it up like a cinnamon bun. So I was just standing there at my counter with my ribbon, watching TV, wishing I weren't out of Diet Dr. Pepper....I started pinching the wired edges into pleats and scrunches—just pushing them together, and it stayed! So I just kept going and when I had enough I rolled it up. Got out the hot glue and glued it together. I had to borrow Alice's idea of adding dew drops because I accidentally got some hot glue on a petal that I couldn't get off. So I pooled a spot of hot glue (dew drop) in that spot to cover it. Then I added a couple more to balance it out. I didn't notice until I saw the picture that my mesh is off center. It should be smaller.
Today I am making some paper bag pages...following along with Kathy Orta's (Paper Phenomenon) YouTube series. I also finished my grandson's birthday card. I've been working on it for two days. Why does it take me so long to make a simple card?
