Flower Centers

I have been making these cute little flower centers the past few days. I have a bunch of sequins and seed beads laying around. I decided to do something with them, and this is what I came up with. I was inspired by the Prima flower centers. I cut out a one inch circle from felt, then I strung flower rhinestones, sequins and beads onto them. (For the circle rhinestones, I just used hot glue to glue them on the felt.) I think they turned out really cute and I can't wait to make flowers to put them on. Hope you enjoy.

My mom and I aren't the only ones who like to craft. My mom's dog Gizmo loves to get paper out of the garbage in the craft room. He takes it under the table and tears it to pieces, leaving us a big mess to clean up. Haha at least it keeps him busy.

Paper Flowers

Here are some paper flowers that I have been making. They are made out of the brown packaging paper that you get in the mail. I used a 3 inch scallop punch, and punched out seven. Then I sprayed the layers with homemade glimmer mist and scrunched them in to a ball. I used my heat gun to dry the layers for a few minutes. I didn't completely dry them scrunched up, I opened the layers and finished drying them. Then I glued about 3 of the scallops on top of each other with the hot glue gun. The rest of the layers I scrunched the middle of the scallop and glued it on top of the others and I just repeated the process. After the flower was together, I sprayed them again with glimmer mist dried it and then painted the high points of the flower with acrylic paint. To finish the flower off I just added a center. Hope you enjoy :)

iPod Case

I bought some clear iPod cases to bling up. So I made this black, silver and white one. I used charms, old necklaces, and old hair jewels, plus a ton of bling and pearls. I used E6000 glue and just randomly placed them on my iPod cover. I think it turned out cute. I'm planning on making some more soon. Thanks for stopping by.
