This was a crafters dream party! It was fun to pin something and then make it for the party. It as also so fun to just let the creativity flow in some projects such as these flowers.
Heather has a bunch on packing paper left over from her move a few years ago.
My next flower I got the inspiration from here. I used a scallop circle shape from my paper cutting system to get these.
The "double bloom" as I call it was by accident as well. I used a short layer of tissues on top of a longer layer and this is what it made.
Heather wanted a game at the party. I happen to see this one. So I made my own. I used my computer screen as a light box, placed a piece of copy paper up onto the screen and lightly traced the pattern. Then used it as a guide to draw a larger one for us. Next, I just filled him in with color.

here and glued yarn in between the P circle and another piece of cardstock on the back side.
The last thing I want to share is that Heather, has wanted to get friends together to make Pinterest items. She used her birthday as a way to get it scheduled. Originally she was wanting to just get everyone together and charge a fee to cover her supplies. But since she was now tying it in with her birthday, she wondered if she should just cover the cost herself. I told her if she did that then it would be like giving party favors. She loved the idea and calls them her "big girl party favors".
First she shared with everyone how she makes her own laundry soap.
here She used hers for lonely socks. I used mine for my wash clothes. Others used them for bills, toys, and hair bows.
This party was a total blast. My goal in sharing all these ideas, is to encourage you to get some friends and family together, enjoy the fellowship and create together!
