ME? Well, My name is Yvonne and I am a SAHM to FOUR beautiful, energetic, wild, lovable, crazy and amazing children. I am married to my best friend and the Love of my life. And I have a creative side that needed an outlet so I started this blog to share my creations with all of you. One day my oldest daughter, all of 6 years old, looked at me while I was crafting and said "you sure are One Creative Momma" and the name for my blog was born.

Cre8tiveGirls Blogoversary!!!

DAY 2

Welcome to the second day of my Wombmates blogoversary!!! ( I can call her that because she's my twin!) If you have been hopping along, you should have come here via Giselle's blog; however, if you are just joining the Blog Hop please start at Yvette's Blog so you don't miss out on any of the fun! 

Here is the complete Blog Hop line up: 

*** Emma www.creativetimeforme.com - Go here next! ***

Continuing with the theme of Firsts, I have a fun project for you today. While surfing my favorite blogs yesterday I came across Sarah @ www.pinkcricut.com and her fantastic Kusudama origami flowers. She has an amazing video tutorial that is a must watch.  
See it HERE.

Well, as soon as I saw these flowers I knew I had to try them right away.

These are the colors and patterns I decided to use...


Project Recipe:
Technique: Kusudama Flower Fold
Paper: Best Of K&Company Too Designer paper
2 sheets each of 5 different papers
Zots Glue Dots in Medium and Large
Martha Stewart Pink Bone Folder
Brown and Pink wire edge ribbon from Costco
Large Clear Buttons, Smaller Green Buttons
and Rhinestones


To make this decorative ball I made 12 Kusudama flowers


I hope you have enjoyed my project today and that it inspires you to try something new. Your next stop on the Blog Hop is my very Creative friend EMMA!  Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
