My May Whimseybox: Making Paper Flowers

Hey y'all! Hope you had a great weekend!! A few months ago I signed up for Whimseybox, a monthly craft subscription. Basically, each month you get a box of craft supplies to create that months project. So far I received a kit to make hand scrub and lotion, a calligraphy kit and this month was a paper flower making kit. I got my mom a subscription for Mother's Day so it was exciting when we both got this month's box. My mom and I attempted to make our project on Friday.

This project was rated Beginner/Intermediate and let me tell you it wasn't that easy. It was actually quite tedious and took both of us several times reading the directions for us to grasp the concept of making some of these flowers. We were working on it for at least two hours and only managed to complete two flowers each. Yikes! And we are both pretty avid crafters. Something about this particular craft wasn't that easy for us. We had a good time trying to figure out what the heck we were doing but still need to go back and make some more flowers to have a completed project. Here'r a little photo reel of our valiant attempt at making paper flowers.

All in all we had a blast but my ideas of grandeur and making a paper flower company that makes  party favors is definitely in the gutter after how long it took me to make two mediocre looking flowers. But it's all about the experience and Whimseybox gave me and my mom some laughs to last a lifetime.

My subscription is actually up but I am going to sign back up in hopes of getting some jewelry making kits soon. That's definitely my strength!! Fingers crossed!! If you are interested in signing up for Whimseybox or making your own attempt at these paper flowers you can do both on their website here. xoxo

  1. Thanks for sharing your experience! This one is definitely time consuming, but I promise you'll find next month's project to be a bit faster + easier (but just as pretty)!
