Mother's Day Flowers and Vase


I made these Flowers for my Mom for Mother's Day. These flowers gave me so much trouble, they kept breaking and sticking together! I was this close to throwing them in the trash! But since it was for my Dear Mother I kept at it. Finally I finished 2 hours later with my hands full of ink and glue. But it was so worth it!


P.S- I used Flexible Straws as the Stems of the flowers. I just put some glue around the top and slipped it into the bottom piece of the flower. Since they are flexible you can twist to the way that fits best and cut them to be different lengths.
