Secret Sister Easter Gifts Day #1

Wednesday, April 15, 2009

This is Day 1 of the gifts I gave my Secret Sister. I covered 3 tins in the colors of her craft room - Rose Red and Cameo Coral. I included a punch she hadn't yet bought and her favorite candy. Among the flowers she likes is the gardenia and the rose. I tried to make a gardenia out of paper and it was a big flop! But I found several tutorials on folding a Kawasaki Rose. It took me several days and enormous mounds of paper to finally get it down - but now I can fold one on the spot!
