Tuesday's {Tip} Recycle Those Tiny Flowers!

Oh my, I ran across this amazing and easy tutorial when I was reading a thread on 2Peas. You can take your zillions of tiny Primas or other flowers you have and make them into these roses:
For the yellow rose, I used 4 tiny Primas. For the white rose, I used 3 Primas. It's super, super easy! Those two roses probably took me 5 minutes to make, and it was my first and quick attempt. I probably will use leaves behind the roses instead of the punched flowers I used here in the picture but there are endless possibilities! I also want to try it with some larger flowers, punched flowers, die cut flowers, etc. As I said, the possibilities are endless! See Nicole Aspinall's tutorial here if you want to learn how to make these. It's super easy, and you won't be disappointed! Enjoy!

It makes it easier to make these little roses if you spritz the flowers first with water, then scrunch. then wait for them to dry. they will get hard again and will last longer! Hope this little hint helps

Love it! I have a ton of primas but have become tired of the usual format for them. These are a great alternative.
