blooming blossoms on the brain











seeing I have
blossoms on the brain
{see previous post}
and none are blooming outside my window
I decided to make some.......
because I cut multiples of flowers at once
this project took me minutes to do
every time I walk pass my blooms
I can't help but
smile
xox
"blooming blossoms on the brain"
trying saying that fast - 10x's

Such a neat and pretty idea! :-)

I tried to do something similar a few years ago but I must say, they did not turn out this pretty. Perhaps I'll give it another go with your instructions to guide me this time. :)

i.ikeda said...

Wahhhh, these are great! I'm going to make some with my little girl after work today and then share the results later. Thank you for the idea and the instructions! xoxoxo

A Vintage Chic said...

These are so wonderful, Koralee! I think the girls and I will have to get out the scissors and have some fun today!

I actually DO have blossoms here...my little espaliered apple tree is blooming already, and my kitchen window is framed by the soft, pink beauties! Spring is definitely on it's way!

I hope your day is filled with beauty, dear friend...thank-you for always sharing such lovely things with us...

GOOD MORNING BEAUTIFUL ONE! This is divine in the art sense of the word....your pinks and blues are my absolute favorite, Koralee. I just came in (I am on Presidents' Day holiday) from shoveling 13 inches of new snow from yesterday's news breaking storm. Ruben is painting and I have had my work out. I LOVE TO MOVE!!! We do however, need a snowblower since we are both in our mid-fifties, so whenever we have this heavy snow, it is not good to tax the heart so!!! LOVING YOUR WORLD today, like always.....grosses bises à ma chère et jolie Koralee! Anita

{kara} said...

oh those are so fabulous Koralee!

Shelley in SC said...

Snappy Di said...

Good Morning Koralee Sweetie...
What a beautiful share this morning. I love this little tutorial and I will be giving it a try. How gorgeous they would be when someone first comes in my door. Now if I can just find a branch that will work. Palm tree branch? Nope that one is out. Lemon tree branch? Maybe, I will go check that one out.

A beautiful share from a beautiful friend. Have a glorious week sweet one. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Madelief said...

What a fun project, blooming blossoms. Running to make some. A very cheery way to help the winter move along.

Maria said...

These delicate blossoms are so pretty Koralee! I made one of these two years ago... and still have it! It was a really fun project. I thought I wrote a post about it, but can't find it! It might have just been a sidebar picture. Your color combination is really Bluebird perfect!

I'm just loving my days off! It's great to have the WHOLE day to enjoy!
Have a sweet Monday, dear ♥
love,

delia hornbook said...

awwww such a beautiful idea, they look really lovely, dee x

Amanda said...

This take me back. I remember making tissue blossoms seemingly all the time when I was little. I'm sure they weren't as beautifully cut as yours, more scrumpled up bits of tissue, but I adored them. Such a happy memory. Thanks Koralee!

Michaja said...

Love your blossom!!!
Have a great week with lost of fun.

The Garden Bell said...

Snap, girlfriend. Are you sure those tissue will last on the branches? Too cute for words and I'm thinking this gal could even do a few. Fingers crossed it's not the "kid" flu.

Enjoy your Monday off,
Kate

Your pretty little black and white kitchen is COMPLETELY charming! So give me an update on the house hunt.Did you find anything yet?
Wishing you a HAPPY week dear one...love R

Precious little bluebird,

Somewhere over the rainbow, there is eternal health and perfection, and thank God for His gift of the wings of grace to promise us there! I am here at school, having made it in 18 inches of new fallen snow. Yesterday was a lovely day, although consumed with shoveling. I still believe we are ON THE SHORES OF SPRING!!! And I send you, from my school desk, wishes for the best rest and repose, sweet, sweet bluebird....Anita

what a sweet idea! love how they turned out. xoxo malia

Jennifer said...

I love this idea and have started my own blossom tree which will become my Easter Egg tree this year! Can't you see darling little eggs hanging amongst the delicate blossoms? I am also using pale yellow tissue for a tree for one of my dear friends going through some tough trials right now. She loves yellows and coral.
I think I nest a couple of fairies in her tree.
Thank you for sharing this sweet craft.

What a beautiful part of this morning. I love this little tutorial and I'll be giving it a try. How wonderful it would be when someone first comes to my door. Now if I can find a branch that will work. Palm branch of a tree? No one is out. Lemon tree branch? Maybe I'll go see that one.
