LESSology Challenge #10

It's time for Challenge #10 at LESSology. I am so excited. I l-o-v-e making flowers thanks to Sa Crafter and Julie Waters. They are the most amazing flowers makers.  

We have a wonderful sponsor this week.

Prize: Prize Pack of Vintage Street Market Goodies

The hardest part for me was picking which flower I wanted to make for this challenge. In the spirit of LESSology I decide to make my flowers from egg cartons. 

First I cut apart the cells and trimmed them down.  I made one petal that I liked and traced around it on the inside of the cell. Then I cut it out.

Next I mixed Ceramcoat Pearl Finish Acrylic Paint and re-inkers to get the color that I wanted. I painted both sides and let them dry. Then I layered the flowers with hot glue and added a vintage button for a final touch.

And here you have my fun funky flowers.

I used my flowers on my receipt journal to keep track of what I sell and what I spend on my crafts.

Here is the video on how I made my flowers.

Now head over to LESSology and show us your flower power. I can't wait to see how your flowers bloom.

Thanks for stopping,
