Hand crafted flowers

I love flowers so thought I would have a go at making some flowers from some pages of an old book that fell to pieces, so I been using it to craft with. I been so impressed by many of the flowers I have seen both in the shops and on blogs I wanted to try making some I used a basic scallop edge punch to make these.
 All ready for my next LO I also had a go at making a flowered brooch using wired ribbon I saw hoe to do this on TV I am not sure what the lady name is so if anyone knows who made them first please say so I can give them credit Updated Annabel Lewis of V V Rouleaux was on QVC and demonstarated the flowers which was where I saw them, also Kirsty Allsop of Location, Location, Location fame made a homemade programme at the end of last year and did a demo too, thanks Glen :)

Must try using old sheet music for my hand-made blooms, the effect you've achieved shows how effective this approach is. And the wired bloom is gawjus!

Those flowers are beautiful. Annabel Lewis of V V Rouleaux was on QVC and demonstrated the ribbon flower a couple of weeks ago and Kirsty Allsop of Location, Location, Location fame made a homemade programme at the end of last year and did a demo too.

I LOVE your recycled button jar. I have lots of buttons that my mum had saved over the years and it was something I have done too. I love nostalgia - I'm a sentimentalist. *Ü* TFS. ~Glen~
