Trilliums and Morning Glories

My mother and I finally finished some of the itty bitty flowers we have been working on...phew...they are a bit of a challenge to work on since they are so very small. I have to wear magnifying glasses, lol. They are technically made to decorate eggs, but are the perfect size for inchies too.

Here are our first 2 Morning Glories. As you can see from the dime, they really are very tiny. We actually made 5 vines, but I took pictures of the first 2. The one on the left still has some glue to dry, but when it is dry, you can not see it.
These are the Trillium's we made. A dear friend that we met at the egg shows asked us to make them for her.  We never heard of them before so had to look them up on Google Images. There are a few varieties, so we ended up making 3 different sizes. It took us quite a while to figure out how to make them, which sizes, which punches to use and which paper worked best. She wanted white ones, so that is what we made for her.

Smallest size.
Medium size. 
Largest size is on the left.

Funny that my mother likes the smallest ones, while I like the biggest. We ended up making 110 of them.

You can see more of my itty bitty flowers by clicking the flower link in the left column. I made Lilly of the Valley and Dogwoods. The are smaller than these, lol, but I loved making them. They are my very favorite flowers after all ;o)

This is quite a different paper craft, I hope you like them.
