Friday Favorites- Flowers Everywhere!

Hello, and welcome to another Friday! I've had the day off today, and while the weather has been a bit cool, I've not let it stop me from adventuring about today and taking pictures of everything that's blooming around here.

Speaking of blooming, the majority of today's picks have to do with flowers, mostly the DIY type. Let's get started, shall we?


From left to right:
  • Cosmo Cricket posted a tutorial on their blog showing how to make this cute accordion album.
  • Also from Cosmo Cricket, a video tutorial on making your own "box flower" from paper. So cute!
  • Learn how to make these tissue-paper covered balls (that look like big flowers) on SEI's blog. These would make great party decorations.
  • Paper Crave links to a tutorial from Martha Stewart with instructions to DIY your own paper dahlia favors.
  • 100 Layer Cake shows how to make beautiful burned-edge fabric flowers.
  • Check out Once Wed for instructions on making these fabric-covered flower poms. Another awesome party decor idea!
  • If you've been admiring the $45 flower-adorned t-shirts from J.Crew (like, ahem, I have), then you have to check out Hey, Jen Renee for a tutorial on how to make your own. The best part? Yeah, she puts them on a $10 (or less?) Old Navy t-shirt. 
  • Young House Love (you just have to see what they've done with their house!) shows how they DIY's an airy flower mobile for their daughter's nursery.
  • Giver's Log shows how to make your own fancy tiered dessert stands. I'm sooooo going to have to make a couple of these!
Mow I'm off to organize the bits of my Friday that are scattered around my office, including my race packet for tomorrow's 5K and lots of goodies from Tuesday Morning!
