Who would of thought it? *edited with BF Blog Hop**

Crepe paper is one of my new fave cheap embellies. I'm talking DIRT cheap. Ive made curly roses, twisty ties and ruffles with them and now - from a humble circle - I can make these. Using cake decorating skills for moulding the petals and using glitter instead of sugar, well I have to say I'm a tad excited. I refuse to pay £6 for 2 huge Prima flowers when this cost approx 10p to make. Simples What did your saturday consist of? (Don't bore me with your patriotism via the Eurovision - that contest is a joke. A JOKE! If it wasn't for Graham Norton I would have bludgeoned myself to death my a wooden spoon)

As this bank holiday is a washout, my sunday will consist of craft instead of bbq. Hope that I don't end up bbq'ing my craft though!

Toodle oooooo

Fab flower and much nicer than Prima's. Totally agree with you about Eurovision, why do we even bother to enter??

Helen said...

Great idea for the flower. Was out so I missed Eurovision - it is a joke, but kind of unmissable, isn't it! (normally!)

jo said...

Very creative use of crepe paper - love it. Eurovision to be avoided at all costs for about the past 20 years I think!

♥ Lydia ♥ said...

Oh yummy!!! Beautiful flower Kirsty...love it!! :)
As for Eurovision...the music doesn't even come into it any more. I took the girls to see 'Spirit of the Dance'instead...a fab evening :0)

To be totally honest can't bring myself to watch that farce, it's so embarrassing, hey ho.
I will probably spend today procrastinating then I might make a card or two but I don't think they'll measure up to your standard, a brilliant card, your flowers are great. Why spend so much on pre-made when you can make little beauties like this x

2Angels said...

Wow that flower is fab! I can't bear to pay that much for a flower either so that is gorgeous! :)

Anne said...

Oh, crepe paper! I haven't played with that since I was small.

I'm with you on the Eurovision - totally!

Sue said...

WOW!!!! what a fab idea. I love it when we can do something so fabby for such a cheap price.

Had a whole day of crafting over at my friends yesterday - bliss:)

Sun is finally out here, but not going anywhere.

Enjoy your holiday weekend.

Jane said...

That brown spotty paper looks very familiar! I have finished my Scrap-a-Mia layout now, you'll be pleased to know. Just got to get the sewing macine out to run down the ruffle.xx

Irene said...

helen miles said...

Wrightboysmum said...

Never noticed the lace stamp before but it's lush!

Kathy said...

beautiful flower its very effective! I think the eurovision is a great laugh, something to watch when ther is nothing else on, or if you have a few friends around and have a lugh about it, I generally only tune in for the voting, Ireland did terrible this year (and for the last few years)unlike in the 80's bring back the old voting system lol. Though last night I went to see Sex in The City instead which was more enjoyable.

Olivia said...
