A friend of mine alerted me to this website (called craftgawker.com, which, you should be warned, will suck you in for quite some time), and through that I found THIS gorgeous website, where there is a tutorial to make THESE:

My ‘I can do that’ monster wanted to try it so I stocked up on tissue paper and spent some very happy times in front of the tv making tissue flowers. (So easy!)

I now have heaps and no idea what to do with them, and I haven’t even STARTED on the pompoms yet…

Here they are, lined up beneath my birthday cards.

Just noticed my followers have suddenly gone up quite a lot! Hello lovely new followers! Thank you for choosing to spend some of your precious time here. 🙂 x
