For Mother's Day this year I decided to make flowers instead of buying them. Truthfully, two hours into cutting petals, 80 to exact, I was thinking buying flowers would have been a less painful experience. These paper crepe flowers are from a handy kit from the Martha Stewart craft line. However, don't be fooled, although it is a kit from Martha, it doesn't mean it is going to be easy. It took me about 6 hours or so to complete these 6 roses. It was worth every second when I gave it to my mom. She couldn't believe it was paper at first, also it will last throughout the year.
