This tutorial is is sort of like the one before it, it's teensy tinsy! It's so cute I can't get enough of it! This is a simple flower, so there is always space for making it better.


Materials:
Scissors
Seed bead - I picked a blue tall and thin one for my original flower, in this tutorial, I am using a clear/white one.
Green paper and other colored paper of your choice
Glue

Instructions:

Step 1: Start with the leaves - Cut 3 very, very thin piece of green paper, varying in size, use estimation to approximate how long it'll be. Also make sure to not make it too short.

If it isn't already, slightly curl the leaves with your finger, not much.

Step 2: Set the leaves aside. For your flower, cut out a thin strip of colored paper similar to the one you used for the leaves. roll this up into a ball. If your flower is too big, cut a smaller strip. If your flower is too small - cut a bigger strip. :) You can make them variating in size (recommended)

Step 3: Roll them into a ball

Step 4: Cover the flower with glue, this will keep them from unraveling. (It may look like the same picture above, but that's because you can't see the glue. :)

Step 5: Make the stems by cutting 2 proportionately sized (not too thin, not too thick .... etc. :) pieces of green paper. Again, don't make them the same height. :)

Step 6: Put it together! Glue the flower to the stem

Step 7: While that is drying, glue the leaves into the bead, arranging them the way you like.

Step 8: Glue the flower into the vase as well

Done! Your super duper, teensy tinsy, miniature flower and vase is finished! You could put this in a miniature bottle (like the one here: http://www.joann.com/darice-timeless-miniatures-spice-bottles-with-plug-/2180370.html#q=miniature+bottle&start=2) -and use it as a charm.

I was surfing online more than three hours as of late, yet I never discovered any fascinating article like yours. It is the lovely prize enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet shall be a lot more useful than ever before.
