Kanzashi Flowers

For our class at the crop on Saturday we used a paper that did most of the work for us when it came to making a lovely page, the paper had a title for us as well as a cute banner and some lovely glitter for an added touch of glamour. So the main technique for our class was something a little bit different. We used ribbon to make Kanzashi Flowers. If you want to have a go you can find a video on YouTube showing how to make them here ( although we made 8 petals rather than 5. The ribbon has a gold side and a silver side both of which went beautifully with the paper. Here are some of the lovely layouts the ladies made (I just love the fact that they have made the layouts their own).

Here is my layout with a photo of my middle son celebrating his 11th birthday (sorry the photograph of him didn't come out too well!)
 This is Bobby's page and as you can see she used an oval cutter to shape her photo. Don't the wedding photos go really well on the page?
 Here is Carols page. She cut a scalloped circle with her Nestabilities which addes a lovely effect to the edge of the photo.
 Here is Glendas page and another oval to emphasise her granddaughter on her 18th birthday.
 Joy has made her own little red roses and used a red photo mount to go with her photo and has left a much larger section of the ribbon showing under her photo which really helps balance her page as she had a much smaller photo to use.
 Sue has grouped 3 photos together to tell the story of her father-in-laws 70th birthday
If any of the other ladies who did the class want to e-mail through photos of their pages I will happily add them to the blog :)
