Rose Petal Crafts.

As I posted last week Thomas sent me beautiful flowers at work before our date last Thursday which included my favorite flowers (mini carnations) but it also contained my second favorite flower - roses! Of course the mini carnations are still going strong (my favorite part about them is they last FOREVER, what could be better than that) but the roses have started to dry up. So Tuesday morning I pulled the petals off....


Being the google-savvy girl I am, I took to the internet for craft ideas of just what treasures I could create with my rose petals (because, let's be honest - I loved them too much to throw them away). I found a few 'eh' ideas before stumbling upon Maure's flicker page which contained this image:


I love decoupage! I haven't done it since college (when I had a few pretty cool project along the way) but after I saw her images I thought, what a perfect idea. She decoupaged (as pictured here): a piece of cardboard, a bangle bracelet, and a big wooden bead. After searching further I found that a few other people had made napkin rings out of toilet paper rolls - sheer brilliance. BUT my roses are pink and my kitchen is red so I don't think that would be my best call.

I decided that since I wanted to frame a picture of T and I anyway, I'd start with a picture frame. I picked up the supplies at Michael's on lunch Tuesday and here are the results...



Love,

B
