paper poppy pomanders procreate

the proud parents of a flower ball
The happy couple, plus flower baby #1, plus cat, plus clean living room.

aw.... so cute

And then there were three... (after 4 short hours of glue gun slinging).
Time passes...............
And now there are seven! Woah. That was a lot of glue. Karen (the FSIL) and I totally rocked the flower balls today. I have no less than 4 visible blisters from the hot glue. It's tricky stuff. It just kind of wants to touch you, even when you don't want it to. Kind of like that creepy guy who stands too close in the subway... just like him. Only hotter.
Tomorrow will be a piece of cake compared to today, only 2 more balls left. Then we get to hang them in the tent!
*By the way: The living room? No longer clean.

Wow! I love those! Where did you get the flowers? We were thinking of doing something similar to that with tissue paper flowers (a la Martha Stewart Weddings), but I like yours much better!

That looks so cool. I don't think I have the patience at all for doing that though.
