pretty little thing...

Here today, sharing what I should have shared yesterday...oops!  What a house full of boys and a long weekend will do to my brain.  So, celebrating Epiphany Crafts this week with The Twinery!  Worked on a few ideas and found that crocheting the flower was the one I liked the best.  A fun mix with this adorable girl sticker from My Little Shoebox.
For a tutorial, easy to follow video for creating this flower check out YouTube HERE.  This is what I used for the basic steps, although I altered the length and scallops a bit on mine.  Don't be afraid of trying to crochet.  Once you learn the basics the rest is easy...and thanks to the pause option on the videos!
Just a little something I have been working on using a few dies that have been ignored lately.  This little mug and leaves from Quickutz.
