Of the Flower variety. Now what were you thinking!!
Fluff asked me some time ago to make her some dinner plate size flowers for her new craft room walls. They are now in situ so I can show you. Colours asked for were pink, cream and mauve so I have alternated them around on each flower. The large petals are made from coloured craft stock with matching petals of gradiating size in tissue paper and edged with satin ribbon which has been frilled.
The centres are made from half a polystyrene ball each. I have then pinned and glued over 100 small 1" flower shapes (punched from tissue paper, with 4 layers each) into the ball completly covering it. The pink flower above has a die cut butterfly adhered to a petal and the one below has two smaller ones made from shrink plastic . Photos are the best I could get with the light available. They look better in real life.
