How to Make a Paper Flower

Easiest paper flower tutorial ever.


  • Craft Paper
  • Glue
  • Heart Punch(or scissors if your some sort of wizard and can cut out a perfect heart)
Step 1: Punch(or cut out) 6 or 12 hearts. Cut out 6 hearts for a flower with a flat side. Cut out 12 hearts to make a 3D flower.
Step 2: Fold all the hearts in half. Glue two halves of two separate hearts together and continue until all the hearts have been glued. If you have 6 hearts don't glue the heats to close. But if you have 12 glue the hearts together to lose your 3D flower.
Step 3: Attach to whatever you want or make a beautiful flower bouquet.


Its beginning to look a lot like're two months late snow..c'mon

My Etsy Shop

               Well really the title should be mine and my sisters Etsy shop. Yeah, that's right we've banded together and are in the midst of making money(and definitely arts and crafts.) She is an extremely talented artist who wood-burns things onto those art mannequin things. So those art mannequin things don't actually have names so we call them Daryll but we spell it differently every single time. You wouldn't believe how many ways there are to spell Darell. Daryl, Derrell, Derrill, Deryl, Dar'rel, Darrel, Darryel, Dariel, Daryol. These are the ones I can find online but I believe there are many more.
               We also sell hats that I make and don't worry we will soon have many things in stock. Like clocks and dresses and bookmarks. It shall be an interesting venture. Oh I almost forgot our Etsy shop name is TicketAndQuill. So check it out man. 
                Also follow us on instagram at @ticketandquill. You know you want to check it out you know it.

How To Create the Perfect Circle Skirt

Supplies needed

  • Fabric(depending on how long you want you skirt how many yards you need will vary)
  • Elastic
  • Scissors
  • Thread
  • Sewing Machine
 First, take your waist measurement. Then, divide your waist measurement by 3. Next, add .5 inches to your answer. This is your circle skirt number.
Now, take your fabric and fold in half like the diagram shows. Then, take your circle skirt number from earlier and mark it on a measuring tape. Now, put the end of your measuring tape on the right most corner ON THE FOLD. Lay it against the fabric vertically and mark on the fabric where your measuring tape is marked. Rotate it, keeping the end in the corner, about every 2 inches marking as you go. 
Now to mark your length. You can make a circle skirt any length from mini to maxi. I usually choose about nineteen inches for my skirts. After you have chosen your length, place your measuring tape where the purple arrow is pointing. Use the measuring tape to mark where you want your skirt to end( adding an inch or so for hemming.) Then, do this again to the other side marking on the fold. And then place the tape in the middle of your skirts waistline and measure the length of your skirt and mark. 
Now, cut on the lines you have created. You should only have one piece of fabric. Now fold the top waistband down about an inch with WRONG sides together. Pin in place and sew. Take your elastic and cut it about 2 inches bigger than your waistband. String your elastic through the waistband using a safety pin. Pin the ends of the elastic to the skirt. Fold skirt with RIGHT sides together and sew the entire length, securing the elastic. Now hem the bottom of your skirt And ta-da the perfect circle skirt.
