Did you know that the red "petals" of the poinsettia are really leaves?

The actual flowers are the tiny yellow parts in the centre of the bloom.

#7 ~ Make Flowers using Sheet Metal

What an amazing idea!

I don't happen to have any sheet metal laying around handy, but I suppose you could try using a drink can...

#5 ~ Mollychicken's Fabric Flowers

Love the shabby look of this fabric flower.

I can use all my favourite scraps too!
