This is my second card for this month's PTI blog hop. I came across a You Tube video by Neen for making twine flowers - you can watch the video here. Neen shows a simple way to create flowers by wrapping string/twine around your hand. I took that same method but used my Bow-Easy instead which allowed me to make flowers of different sizes. As my flowers went down in size I wrapped my string less times - for example the flower on my card was wrapped about 22 times instead of the 42 that Neen used for a larger flower.
For my flower I used some household string that I had lying around. These flowers are fun and easy to make. Below are a few samples of different sized flowers, including some black crochet cotton. You can use a variety of items for your flower centers - buttons, beads - I used a wood shape that I coloured with a gold Krylon pen.
