Tissue paper flowers are really addictive to make. It took me 6 flowers to finally understand the process and get a finished flower that seemed stable. On the first few, I didn't wait for the glue to dry so they ripped a little in the centers. I tried to use scotch tape in the place of fine gauge floral wire and that didn't work out too well, either. I bought really cheap, sort of shiny, floral tape that t looked kind of tacky.
But by flower number 6, I had something to share that didn't make me feel embarrassed.
I guess the lesson I learned this week is to always use the proper tools.
I've been thinking about this vintage craft encyclopedia project , and I'm starting to wonder what I should do with the FO's. I obviously can't keep them all. Do you think I should sell the things I'm not keeping on Etsy? It would help fund the cost of supplies, and it would keep clutter at bay. This is meant to be a learning experience, so I would probably just list them at the cost of supplies (without figuring in time or overhead). Is it a good idea or am I insane?
