Iron Craft is so much fun! This is my third week, and I find that it helps me to 'think outside the box'. =) This week's challenge was "Done Reading?". My husband is a huge book nerd, and I'm a sort of book nerd. That being said, it was hard for me to ruin a book to create something new... I know it sounds weird, but its the truth!!!
We JUST donated a ton of books to Goodwill last week, so where was I going to get my book? Then I remembered that there were still some Romance Novels hanging around. I thought... that might be kind of fun and silly!!!
I started by just randomly making paper flowers, etc. I folded them accordion style. Then folded that in half and gluesticked the sides together.
On the one above I cut a rounded edge on the ends when they were smashed together (like making a snowflake).
An attempt to make a wind up rose. It should have been thicker....
Still looks cute though!
Colored the creases pink for fun.
Fan flower with blue in the creases and its own stem.
And now the actual project.
Flirty Flower in a Shadow Box
My husband came in when I had all of these flowers on the table and I wasn't sure what to do with them. He immediately said "put them in a shadow box!" DUH!!!! Because of his genius I let him pick the button. =)
