Yo Yo Flower Tutorial

Do remember these flowers I saw at the Basic Grey booth at CHA?
I had mentioned that I could show you how to make these... and here you go.



Or you can view it over on YouTube here.

And here's a card I made with the two I made in the video:
That card so does not look like I made it, but I did. I think with all of the You're Dandy spring wishing I'm starting to make nothing but fun spring cards.

The stems for these flowers are from the dandelion stem, which is really easy to move into any angle. The flowers are hand drawn, and they look a little funky because I decided to paper piece them after I originally drew them! Lastly the pink American Crafts paper, is cut so that I could pop up the top layer with foam tape! Fun right? Hope you enjoy the video!

If you missed the release of You're Dandy this weekend... you can find it here!

Those yo-yo's are so crazy cute!! And your card is AMAZING! Loved the video showing how you made yours. I have a yo-yo templete thingy, but the way you made yours is so much easier than my template. Thanks!
