On a recent trip to Joann's, I found a new toy. It's called the Kanzashi Flower Maker, by Clover. I wasn't sure how it would work, but figured for $6 plus my 40% off coupon making it $3.60, it was worth a shot.
There are several sizes and types, but I chose the 3" pointed flower. I figured it out pretty quickly, as it comes with really good instructions. I found it a lot easier to use than Clover's Yo Yo maker. Just follow the pictures, especially when forming petals. I messed it up the first time, but then I caught on.
How cute are these? Made from bits in my scrap box. Took about 10 min. per flower. I think they'll look great as an accent on a pillow, or even as a coat pin. A good craft for while watching TV, too.
What do you think? Has anyone else tried this?
