How have you guys been? I know I have been missing from the scene lately but I promise you that I wont go away altogether 😛 I have some other priorities to be set right before I can plunge into crafting world so until then, do follow me on Instagram and facebook for regular crafty updates 🙂 I made these cute punched washi tape handmade flowers last day and I couldnt stop admiring at how well it actually turned out to be! I definitely had to share the tutorial for this simple but beautiful handmade flower.
I’m back after my pretty long Easter vacation and yes I’m definitely back to crafting & blogging as well. I have a lot of unfinished project that needs a little boost up and motivation which includes few quilled flowers that need to go on to few cards, a newspaper quilled night lamp shade and painted recycle mugs. Keeping those aside, I’m sharing with you a Easy Stocking Flower tutorial I tried last night. It’s funny how the idea came up – one of my microwave bowls cracked and I wanted to somehow re-purpose it. That’s when I thought I could use it as a flower-pot kind of thing and since I have been having these stockings for over a year without any use, I thought I’d just make some flowers out of them Stocking flower Tada!!!!
Someone had shared these very beautiful quilling comb flowers on facebook and I just loved how neat and simple it looked. She hadnt posted a tutorial and I was sure it was done with a quilling comb. In my previous post on All-about-quilling-tools (HERE), I was telling you guys how I had purchased a quilling comb and not yet done anything with it! Well when I saw this quilling comb flower on facebook, I immediately grabbed my quilling comb and tried the flower and the one petal was super easy! What grabbed my attention was how different the quilling comb flower looked altogether unlike the loose coil flowers of different shapes.
Hope you all found use with my basic quilling tutorials for quilled tight coil HERE and quilled teardrop shape HERE. I have been making these shapes to fill in my quilled wall hanging which is finally over 😀 and this time its malaysian flower 🙂 Well Malaysian quilled flower was apparently a quilling design first made by Solehah Muhammad of My Quilling Soul (HERE) The Quilled Malaysian flower looks very simple but getting the right symmetry on either sides of the petal is a little tough job. Honey in her blog at Honey’s quilling has done a very well explained tutorial on making Quilled Malaysian flowers (HERE) and also has shared some interesting tips and techniques (HERE). When I tried to make these flowers I had to keep repeating the petals again and again because I just couldnt get the symmetry on either sides of the petal and so I devised a way of my own. So shall we get right into the tutorial?
You might have made crepe paper flower a million times but you would not have tried this one – I started off making a rose but ended up in a flower like this which nevertheless looks pretty. I got these pretty vintage silver coated flower vases from Zupiterg about which I have already done a post HERE and also, one of them is up for a free GIVEAWAY (HERE)!! So anyways i made these crepe paper flower to fill into these pretty little beauties. Im sharing with you all a tutorial for these Crepe paper flower that look like a hybrid of poppies and roses!
If you have seen my last post about kanzashi artist Sakae (HERE), you would know why this post now. I became so obsessed seeing all the varieties of kanzashi ribbon flowers on the Internet and I could already imagine them as headbands n hair clips for my daughter. 😀 so wasting no time I pulled out few ribbons and tried these beautiful looking flowers and I realised that the procedure was simple but there were definitely some tips to be shared to get them right ( I made 4 kanzashi ribbon flowers in one go and only my fourth one came out nearly perfect). This tutorial can be found everywhere on the Internet but please do read the tips and tricks section to avoid following a trial and error method to get the kanzashi ribbon flower right.
