Paper Flower.

Browsing the internet for tutorials I ended up with all sorts of tutorials for making paper flowers.

However, in every tutorial I found they used some sort of tool I don't have!

I have been trying to figure out a way to make them without those tools and today I tried out an idea of mine.

My first try was a hit, I made 1 perfect flower and I really wanted to share this with you guys!

Here it is;

The 1 perfect flower! I love it!

I used this wooden shape to draw the shape on the back of  some paper left-overs from my storage boxes.
I draw 4 of those with a pen, cut them out, made them wrinkle, glued the heart of the flowers on the different layers together, glued a silver rose bean in the middle and shaped the flower around it. 

Here is the flower on top of the storage boxes.
I didn't glue it on because I'm not sure how I want to decorate the boxes so I'm going to keep them clean at least untill all 4 of them are finished.

After a little time without crafting I walked into my crafting room and realized... I have never used my own crafting room before!

How did this happen? I'll tell you;

A while ago my husband and I turned our room full of clutter into a clean crafting area. At the same time my husband was inspired by my crafting and started altering Nerf Guns.

So, I did use the room for crafting-storage but since we were crafting together I ended up in the living room, again and while I was not using the room, it became cluttered AGAIN!

Last friday, my husband left for a fun weekend out with his friends, I went into the room and started cleaning up.

I immediately noticed I needed to do some practical crafting to give it a personal touch and to add some extra storage space. It was one of those thing that are on your To-Do-List but you never get around to do them.

I decided to make that my first priority;

I started with some shoe-boxes I kept for storage but still needed to be altered.
They were from my daughters shoes so I had 4 boxes in 4 sizes.

And since this weeks SSSS Challenge is Anything Goes, I'm going to enter my "New Vintage Storage Boxes".

So far I finished 2 boxes;

The bigger box of the 2.

The smaller box of the 2.

The 2 of them stacked on top of eachother.
