Cruising the inter web recently,
I came across the following gorgeous tutorial
by the talented Flax & Twine.
Although the techniques and tutorial are originally from Martha Stewart,
I just love how Flax & Twine has laid out the post.
It makes it so easy to follow.
Aren’t they gorgeous?
Now, I myself, have made these flowers in the past,
and I though it was high time that I showed you my versions,
and my tutorial.
as when a new technique is learnt
it means that one must become completely obsessed,
so . . . . . .
3 easy shapes + sizes
I created quite a few.
And then I made a whole canvas with it.
What do you think you will do with your creations?
- Decorate a mirror
- Make a wreath
- A hairclip?
I’d love to see what you create.

Have you ever wanted to have crack-a-lack at doing calligraphy?
I know that you can get kits and books and heaps of online tutorials.
How would you like a really simple version,
that will get you writing
– yep you read that correctly WRITING –
your own place cards (wedding)
door sign (bedroom door)
or even a title page (homemade recipes)?
Here’s a couple of tutes,
that will show you how just doing it
is all the skills you require.
Here’s my attempts.
Not so appalling is it?
when trying to think of words to write!
I suppose if I practice a bit
I could actually get good at it.
Will you have a crack?
I’d love to know if you do :D
Sorry just had to share this – it’s just a tad funny!
