New bling flower centres Ive made....and more flowers ...of course!


Ohhh look at the pretty flower centres Ive made

I really hope you are not sick of seeing my flowers.......but its what I enjoy making and do best.  Ive made these flowers....some you will recognise like the large Whipped creams and large floating meringues and some you may not have seen.  But they all have new flower centres that Ive come up with.  Arent they just so blingy and scrumptious?  I love them.  And they are so easy to make.

I bought some bling mesh which you'll have already seen from my previous post.  Remember?  I bought it from Fiona Jennings, heres her Etsy store....click here.  I just love her store.  I was on the other night and bought her out of dolly pegs and a few other bits and pieces, heehee.  I was on earlier and she has some amazing flowers on for sale....they put mine to shame!!

Anyway, I cut a little strip off the mesh.  Took one of my large 15mm flat back pearls and hot glued it to a piece of cardstock.  I then hot glued the mesh strip around the pearl and voila.....a bling flower centre.  I just trimmed the card afterwards so you wouldnt see the card stock.

So here are the flowers with the centres.

I havent given these wee bambino's a name yet
but theyre made from white satin and black/white tulle

With the white satin and black tulle these flowers look
almost grey or charcoal in colour

I love the flower centres

Profile view....look at the puffed up loveliness on that

White satin and white tulle

Can you tell Im chuffed with these flowers and centres??
Heres some of the Large Floating Meringues and the large Whipped Creams with my new flower centres.


The centres look so pretty on the large Whipped creams

Large floating meringue





Thanks again folks for having a look.  I hope you like them.  I may be adding some of these flowers to my blog candy also........so watch this space.

Once again thanks to everyone who has become a follower and leaves comments.  I really appreciate it.

  34. Oh Lee.... get tired of your flowers??????? NEVER!! Each one is a stunning creation and you should be so proud of them.... they are absolutely FAB!! I love each and every one you make, and file away all your tutorials... but I never seem to be able to find the lovely material you make them out of! And, i missed out on the diamante mesh from Fi... I dithered, then she didn't have any left! Hope she gets more in. I did order the pearls from china though and got them.. so I WILL be having a go, just don't think mine will turn out anywhere as nice as yours.. Can't wait to see your next creations.... keep it up girl!

  52. Lee: It's a blessing to know someone else who has "been there" and can sympathize with Rebecca. Her Mom hasn't told her yet that the paralysis is permanent. She will not walk again because her spine was completely severed in two. It protruded out her back in two places. She fell from a second story, and is so lucky to be alive. She found out that she WILL be able to have children, and will most likely have feeling in her chest area. She has complete use of her arms - praise God! Thanks for caring, she has MANY more surgeries ahead. You are a blessing and encouragement, Lee. God bless you in your struggle, as well. Hugs!
