DIY Water Distressed Paper Flowers Tutorial

I've been having fun making water distressed paper flowers the last few days.  
They are easy to make and they look quite nice.  I am thinking about using them for my wedding decorations next year.  What do you think?
By varying the petal shapes, colours, and centers, I have made a lots of different types of flowers.
I even experimented with making some anemones.  It's fun  :) 
I have amassed quite the collection of them already...
I even made different kinds of leaves  :D 
If you would like to know how to make these, the tutorial can be found here on my wedding blog.

Have a great day!

Hedgie Hat Tutorial

I tested out a new tutorial today on how to make a Hedgie Hat.  These are hiding places for shy little hedgehogs and hedgehogs that love to burrow.  I know Poggles would have loved to have one of these since he was such a shy fellow.
 The tutorial is available as a PDF instant download from my shop.
The tutorial is 11 pages and includes the template for the hedgie hat.  The templates for the mushrooms are not included, but I do provide step-by-step instructions on how to make them with free-hand cut mushroom shapes.
The finished hedgie hat is also available for sale in my shop.  Please do stop by and check it out.

Have a great week!

Crazy Awesome Pumpkin Countdown Advent Calendar

It's a little bit late, but I just came across this amazing tutorial by Needles n' Knowledge.  I am blown away.
The drawers can all open up and store little trinkets and goodies!
You make it using the Silhouette Cameo paper cutting machine.  Maybe I should make this next year!  You should check out the other amazing tutorials on her blog.  They're incredible.
Have a happy week!
