wreath and new picture editing site

I'm finished with my wreath from the flowers I showed you a few posts back...

AND I even turned it into a hair clip :)

The original siteI found it on was one of my favorites...Becoming Martha. HERE is her post on the wreath she made, that inspired me to do mine.
HER site took me to the original owner of the flower posts....HERE at Infarrantly Creative.
I took the liberty of copying her directions and pictures here for you :)




Fabri-Tac glue

pin backs

cardboard (I used a recycled cereal box)


embroidery floss

1. Cut a piece of felt 1 1/2” wide by any length (depending on how big you want your flower).  Fold it in half and glue just the edge closed.

2.  Cut little slits into the folded part of the felt.

Now here is where you can get creative with how you cut your felt which will give you variations in the flowers.  All of the ones pictured below are cut the same way.  The only different is how wide I cut the slits.how to make felt flowers (12)
This larger flower is done simply by adding another strip of the felt to make it larger.  Next to it the the size comparison of one strip versus two.

This one is done by cutting the slits on a diagonal rather than a straight cut.

This last one which looks more curvy is done simply by skipping the gluing part in Step 1 and just holding the felt closed while you cut it.  Somehow when you go to roll it up it gives it this look.
3.  Roll your flower up gluing it along the way.  Once the glue is dry fluff it in place.

NOW....onto my NEW picture addiction...

You all know how much I take pictures...whether it's of my classroom, or my children, or the beach (hehe)...well, you know that App that Iphone users around the world use?? The instagram one?? Yeah...us Android users can't use that.
But have no fear!!
I have come across my NEW favorite picture editing site!! And, it's actually pretty easy to use!!

It's pixlr.com

There are two options when you log in....the photo editor (please pay no mind to my tabs at the top of the pic...I forgot to crop those out..lol. oh...p.s. Did you miss my post on how PC users can take a snapshot of their screen??? Go check it out {HERE} - that's how I got these next two pictures!)

Or you can go "into the dark room" and play around with the effects of  your picture. SUPER FUN!!! The two pictures at the top (of the flowers), I did that in the effects part...actually on the app on my phone, but same thing.

Tomorrow (Thursday) is our school's 100th day...I think...lol. I'm excited to see what my sub does with them!! She emailed me the other day and told me that my kids keep asking her "where's your camera so you can take pictures for Mrs. Ross?!"  Awww....I love my kiddos this year. :)
