French Flower Beading

craftster French Beaded Flower Jewelry

Recently I’ve seen these fantastic beaded flowers at craftster.
Usually I’m not one for beaded flowers but I find these so beautiful.
The thread is no tutorial and it seems that she hasn’t written one yet (I’d say that she don’t want to) but somewhere in the comments they mention a basic tutorial for French flower beading that I found great at first sight.

Perhaps soon;-)

Other threads of the same author, some of them show French flower beading, too

Paper Flower

unikatissima Paper Flower

I found an instruction for a nice paper flower and thought that this should work with self-coloured paper, too.
It did ;-)


unikatissima Paper Flower First I painted on a sheet of toilet paper with some markers.


unikatissima Paper Flower I dropped water on my ‘painting’, but it was a little too much water and everything swam.
In order not to get everything dirty I have put it luckily on an old little plastic bag.


unikatissima Paper Flower Therefore I put another sheet of toilet paper onto the first, the water and the dye dispersed on both.
I blow-dried everything to dry it faster ;-)


unikatissima Paper Flower I cut my papers by guess and by gosh, that is to say without a pre-sketched spiral and my scissors were quite blunt.


unikatissima Paper Flower That may be the reason why my little ‘roses’ look so beautiful ;-)

Spring Flower Necklace

beadjapan Spring Flower Necklace

I found a tutorial on how to make a Spring Flower Necklace.
Unfortunately I haven’t had time to make it yet, but I really want to in the future.
As you can see on the photo it has daisies just like the Beaded Daisy Chains, but they are beaded in a quite different way.

Really cute, isn’t it?

Paper Flower Ornaments

unikatissima Paper Ornament

Soon you will need nice ornaments for New Year’s Eve and I find the paper flower ornaments cute.
On the photo you see a snap try (very fast, but not very accurate ;-)) with plain wrapping paper which is coloured at one side only: I suggest that you do no such thing!
First the paper is much too thin, therefore the ornaments don’t look so beautifully rounded as the originals.
Second is the fact, that the paper is printed on one side only silly: If you follow the instruction properly you get half a coloured and half a white flower.
Third it helps to work accurately, then the flower doesn’t look so messed up ;-))

instructables Simple Paper Flowers

I found at instructables a tutorial on how to make paper flowers.
It seems to be quite easy and they are looking amazingly beautiful!

When the gift wrapping begins soon this can be a wonderful decoration.
But it could be also a beautiful pin for a beautiful woman ;-))
