I posted a pic of my wall hutch on the porch earlier ~~ still wanting some hydrangeas for the top. Well, I asked a friend if she had cut some of hers cause mine were small & already getting bare. Anyway she found me something else ... paper hydrangeas @ a garge sale ... cheap! ;-)

This is a pic of my bare cabinet top & I'll post in my comments some more pics. Jeanne S.

...and the bird basket I put tog for a silent auction for our 'Friends of the Library' coming up Sat. @ the local craft show in town. Hubby built the birdhouse, I added some of my photo cards of birds & a wood cardinal from Hobby Lobby ... also some small pinecones from our vac in So D. this summer. Hope you enjoy ~~Jeanne S.

Jeanne, love your new flowers. So wonderful your DF. They look like they could be made out of patterns? I've wanted to make some out of coffee filters and dye them different colors. Thought this might work for DGD and I when we make our angels.

Your so sweet to make this darling basket up to donate. I see you've attached some of your beautiful cards. Someone is going to score big time with this one!

The paper hydrangeas are neat they are perfect for the top of your shelf, and a great use for old patterns.

What a good friend, those paper ones are pretty neat. I probably wouldn't have known they were paper if you hadn't said so.

Love your basket! Someone is going to be very happy going home with it. That cardinal is really cute!

hugs, Karen

Does anyone here, besides me,
Remember using this same technique
with Kleenex tissue to make flowers?
We made tons of them for various things,
back in the '50s.

Punk, how do you make flowers from coffee filters?
Sounds like they would be really neat, too.

There are alot of tutorials on making these flowers on you tube. I will have to check out the one Jeanne shared. Here's a bolg that has some pretty flowers too. I didn't see the one that I really liked before.

My DGD and DM made so many crafts and yes 'Rusty' they made kleenex tissue flowers in the 60's.lol Hope you make some and share pictures with us.
