Summer is on the way, as are birthdays and Mothers’ Day. So plenty of gorgeous wrapping to be getting on with! I’ve been experimenting with fabric flowers lately and they lend themselves well to embellishing gifts.
I already had this beautiful, sheer fabric. It was one of those purchases where I had no clue what to do with it at first (2 years!) I ironed on some adhesive backing paper, bought from a local haberdashery shop. I went a bit mad and did loads but then spent a happy evening snipping them out, in front of the television. I store them in an envelope to keep them flat until ready for use.
At a recent workshop, we all made cones shapes from wallpaper and embellished them with the flowers. What I liked about this was the ‘artistic license’ and they all turned out slightly differently. Look!
I also decorated a couple of presents,later, for my Mum. I think she’ll love them!
