Today I showed how to make paper flowers. They are so easy, but they do take a bit amount of time if you are making 100 of them. Gentry and I made flowers for two days to cover the lampshade on TV today. It takes a while for the video to be available so I will post the actual link later.
It began by using an assortment of papers. I wanted them to coordinate and be similar colors. My latest paper collection,Mr & Mrs was perfect for this project-

We tried to keep our flowers about the same size. I began with a lamp that I purchased at Hobby Lobby. The lamp was brownish and the lampshade was golden tan. I took them apart and outside I spray painted both the base and the lampshade black. After it was dry, I hot glued each flower to the lampshade.
After the TV segment, I raced (wearing heels) out the studio to make my Weight Watchers meeting. I realized on the way that I had forgot my weigh in book. So I am home and will go in the AM to weigh in. So I'll report in tomorrow.
HAVE a great MONDAY!
