Klutz Books: Fabulous Flowers Giveaway!!

Hip hip hooray, summer is officially here!  How many of you need fun crafty ideas to share with your kids?  Me!  Me!  Me!  


Well today I have an amazing giveaway for y'all!  The newest crafty installment from Klutz books is out this summer and it's called Fabulous Flowers!  

This book is amazing!  Like all their great products this one comes with easy to read instructions as well as everything you need to start making any paper flower in the book!  I just love that about this book...no setting up and realizing that I have no glue in the house...a momma's dream come true!



The book begins with lots of 'Blossom Basics' which teach you the fundamentals of making each flower.   



There are so many flower choices in the book (roses, zinnias, cosmos, hibiscus just to name a few!) it was hard to decide which one to start with...so I let the kids do the hard part :-)



Can I just say once again how I love, love, love that this book includes everything you need to get started!  All parts of the flowers are ready to punch out, as well as the book includes the stems, a custom winding tool, rhinestones and even the glue!!  



This was a super fun afternoon activity for Noah and Penny...they loved punching out the flower shapes and designing the way they wanted each of their flowers to be!



Um, can you tell that little sisters like to be just like their big brothers?  Their flowers are almost identical!!

Klutz Books is giving away TWO Fabulous Flowers books so that means TWO winners will be chosen...Hooray!!

  8. One craft we plan to do: I am planning on buying some plain t-shirts and having the girls draw on them with Fabric Markers for my husband for Father's Day. In the summer, what dad wouldn't be proud to show off their daughters' artwork? It'll be one of a kind...

I work at a museum and we're doing a series of day camps next month - We're going to make some homemade shrinky dinks, all kinds of fun science experiments, paper lanterns, puzzles, and paper beads. Just to name a few! This book would be a fantastic resource.

    ReplyDelete
  42. and one of our summer craft ideas - floating lanterns like in Tangled!

    ReplyDelete
  43. A better question would be what craft am I NOT doing this summer? Heh. Okay here's one: I'm experimenting with gummy this week. Posted the results of the first test last night: http://www.eat-the-evidence.com/2011/06/15/advanced-gummy-experiments-orange/ It's awesome because the basics are easy enough for little kids (my five year old is the model/demonstrator for my tutorial here: http://kimberlychapman.com/crafts/cakes/gummytutorial.html ) but versatile enough for advanced cake decorators, which is why I'm teaching classes in it all summer.

    And that's the tip of the iceberg for my crafts!

  44. We have several crafts planned this summer. I am refinishing a large fish tank stand. The kids and I are working on a quilt (maybe more), scrapbooking and other paper crafts and anything else that might strike us as a must do.
