As we were having three lovely little guests coming on Saturday, I thought why not brighten the room a little bit. And believe me these cupcake paper flowers really brighten it up. I am not a fan of artificial flowers but I just love these ones. I first spotted them on Martha Stewart's website and planned to make them someday.
All this crafting activity of mine provoked my husband's comment "Well, apparently some people here have too much spare time". The funny thing about it is that I keep complaining every now and then that I am so short of time and there are so many things to be done in the house, and at the same time I am found sitting on the floor in the living room making paper flowers. For someone, who doesn't take sewing and crafting quite seriosly, it probably looks as a total waste of time. But for me it is simly a way of living.
As I have already mentioned both flowers and rosettes are so simple to make that in no time you will find yourself making a whole bunch of them. If you fancy making some but you are not sure how to start, here is a step by step photo guide
