Kanzashi Mixed Media.

Hi Everyone!
I was browsing Pinterest and came across a Japanese flower technique called  Kanzashi. The flowers are made by folding squares of fabric to make the petals. I did a search to see if there was a way to make them from paper and found this site: U Can do Stuff. I first tried it with cardstock but the folds didn't work. So I tried regular copy paper. That worked. And, unlike the instructions, I joined the petals with thread. I used the Heidi Swapp color shine to color the finished flowers. 


The sentiment is from the Dec. 2010 Kit of the Month.

Have a great week!!
