Your Flowers are Stepping on My Heads

I don't have any new finished dolls to show you all today. I have heads so far... which is amusing to me. That makes it all okay. The reason behind no new dolls is due to flower folding. My friend had a baby shower thrown for her on Saturday and me and a bunch of gals did the decorating.

I decided that we were going to fold flowers (Origami Kusadama Flowers... but with regular paper) to make a pretty garland and then have the centerpieces match kind of... but with real "flowers" in them. I ended up with hens and chicks. I have a collection of them, so I figured I would share. They turned out cute. The lotus flower design was from Fold Something... and easy once Andrea figured out the flower popping up the leaves part. I also added some freehand flower shapes to hang in between the folded flowers... just to break it up a little. Not too shabby.

So anyway... here are the three heads waiting for bodies... and eyeballs, fangs, pouches and hair. They need a few days worth of work. It'll be less if I really push. I might just do that to keep myself busy.

On a very sad note, my dear Grandma Jane passed away on Saturday night. She was awesome.
