Today I got stuck in to some flowersoft.. well to be exact it got stuck to me! Its definately a messy process, it is for me anyway:-)
First you dip the end of your flower wire into thick white glue ( I use Aileens ) then twirl the gluey end into the flower soft. Its best to press the flower soft into the gluey stick to get a nice thick bloom. This is where you end up wearing the stuff, believe me , it sticks to fingers much easier than the wire! Then the blooms have to be kept upright to dry, I stuck them in a sponge. Once dry, you can use them like mini flowers and they do look quite sweet.
My photo of the ATC I made is a bit dark and doesnt do it justice, it really looks like a little bouquet of lavender.
I dont think it will be one of those often used things in my craft room!
