CAS cards and Kanzashi flower tutorial

hello peeps,

      Today's cards are completely CAS- All of them for CraftyJC. Though CAS is not my style, I occasionally enjoy making them.. :)But then, I have to restrict myself, the feeling of adding something more to the card.. :)

     This is a simple Pattern Paper weaving, with scraps of leftover PP.Nothing much to say abt it..

     This card is stamped with the Stampin up Best Dad Ever stamp set.. I love this set!and I like the dash of red in the card.

This card is also from the PP scraps.. The Butterflies are PTI diecuts,RAK from P.I am playing along this week's PDCC#104 colors
and MyTimetoCraft-White

WeeMemoriesWMC#73-Free for all

Hope you liked the cards!

Today's Tutorial

This is the tutorial I made for my Featured blogger post in Kavitha's blog.Kanzashi flowers can be made in satin cloth, ribbon,velvet and paper too..

Take felt in 2 colors(can be done in single color too)

Cut small squares with it.. need not be perfect, you can also try with circles.. it gives a different flower :)

Fold the squares in half

Join the below two ends

Secure the folds with safety pins

After it is done for all the 8 pieces, Sew them one by one ,removing the pins

Sew together the last petal with the first one and knot it below

Fill the center with button or brad or any other embellishment. Finally, the Kanzashi flower!! Is nt it gorgeous?!!
