Amazing Flower Tutorials and GIVEAWAY!

Every year at this time I wrack my brain trying to figure out what I can hand make for christmas presents that people will actually LIKE getting.  Do you remember when I did that tutorial on dying feathers?  I made this amazing hair clip...


The tutorial for that flower is from Jewel Box Ballerina and she has a ton of other amazing flower tutorials that I have been dying to try.  (The yellow flower above is the white flower top right, below)





Don't worry if feathers aren't your thing!  There are lots of fabric flower options (seen left).  I'm going to bust out my scrap bag and make every one of these babies!








Who wouldn't be happy with one of these for Christmas.  There is something for everyone so the young girls in my family are getting headband and clips with flowers and the older girls will get flower pins that can also be put in the hair (because older girls like to have fun too right?).


You can purchase the patterns separately if your only interested in certain ones, but if your like me and want them ALL, there is a bundle of all the tutorials in one! It includes all the flowers pictured above.  I have the full bundle and am amazed at how doable they actually are once you see them done step by step.  The tutorials are even more details than the one's I've shared with you myself!  Pictures of every little step to make everything clear, plus a super friendly lady behind the shop who is more than willing to answer any questions you may have.

Included in the set is a Wedding Bouquet tutorial that includes the step by step directions for all of these "filler" flowers, I think they are STUNNING!!!! 


The website also offers several FREE tutorials, one of which goes through the building of the wedding bouquet, but the free version doesn't show you how to create the flowers used, the one in the purchased to tutorial DOES! So don't be confused ;)  

I'd love to stay and drool over them some more with you, but I want to get actually dig in and make some!  Finally, something to pull me away from Pinterest and actually create something beautiful in real life!

Special offers!!!! Don't go just yet, I have a special offer for you, plus a chance to WIN the entire tutorial set!!!!
