The camellias are made from a cream coloured paper. The larger petals started off as balloon shapes, and the little ones in the centre started off as daisies. You have to cut apart all the petals, shape them and then poke them individually into a blob of silicon glue. Kept us quiet for a while - well, relatively quiet! Jane tells us that there were 128 of them - I'll take her word as I can't count that high! The leaves for both flowers are made from the same green paper, but those on the camellia have been painted with a varnish to make them glossy. We made an oriental themed card designed by Jane to put the camellias on.
Thanks to Jane for a really enjoyable day, and to the ladies in the class for the great company!
Jane now has a blog - Flower Girl. She has only just started it, so only one card on at the time of writing, but it's definitely a blog to keep an eye on in the future!
