wasting time researching on Pinterest this past weekend.
You know, discovering new boards, pins and pincers – keeping up with latest trends.
(Like I said – wasting time)
I saw some beautiful things.
Inspirational posters, summer dresses, bunting, wedding bouquets, blackboard art – just so many cool and interesting things.
Oh and a bit of Calvin & Hobbes.
But then I saw this . . . .

Bestill my beating heart!
And because I have nothing to do
splutter, cough, snort, snicker
I thought I might try to make a few.
Would you like to have a go too?
Here are some closeups of my attempts.
I’m quite pleased with them. Especially when you consider that I don’t have that glorious 180gsm crepe papers that all those others are constructed from.
I just love the way they ‘cup’ as it gives them an amazing texture and reality.
I’ve got a tutorial almost ready to share with y’all.
