1. Begin by picking out your Halloween Paper (BEWARE: there are so many stinkin’ cute ones at the Scrapbook stores right now!!), and cut TWO 12 inch strips that are 1 inch – 2.5 inches wide (per accordion flower).

2. Put two strips together and fold back and forth until you are all the way through. Then, hot glue the two ends together as well as the other ends so it makes a circle.

3. Push edges of strips IN to make an accordion flower. Hot glue center and hold, and do the same on back. For another tutorial on these flowers, I used one HERE.

4. Paint skewers the desired color you’d like and let dry. I stuck mine into the floral foam to dry.

5. I wanted to add a little something to the skewers, so I cut out .2 inch white strips of vinyl and twisted them along the skewer.

My hubby is super smart and suggested I stick them in his drill, turn it on, and let the drill do the twisting. It takes seconds (isn’t he smart?).

Its such as you learn my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the ebook in it or something.
I think that you simply could do with some % to power
the message home a little bit, however other than that, this is magnificent
blog. A great read. I’ll definitely be back.

jenny's mom

Hi,
