Celebrating SUPER Saturday

I love all kinds of crafts and today I'm going to share what we did yesterday afternoon. We made flower print bandanas to wear.

These are a few blooms that I picked at home and then brought here to the camper with me

We put a piece of waxed paper Under the blossoms then laid a handkerchief over top of them
Then put another piece of waxed paper over the handkerchief

After that we smashed them with a hammer

Here is a picture of the finished product

I even did a tank top just to see how it'll look.

I think this is my new favorite craft. I can imagine smashing flowers on napkins and table cloths too.

There is no end to what could be decorated with them.

We are off the the baby shower today for DS#5 and his wife. I hope to share pictures with you all tomorrow.

Have a SUPER Saturday everyone.

Oh my gosh MA! They're beautiful! What a GREAT idea! Wow, I would love to use my hibiscus to make placemats! Oh yea, I'm getting some ideas now!! Thanks for the inspiration MA! I can't believe how pretty they are, and how well they transferred.
Congratulations on a new baby! When is this precious one due?
How do you keep up with all of these bundles of joy? Hugs and Love, Sharon

Where DO you get all these ideas from? Quite sure if I tried it, it would end up looking like bits of cloth that I'd been mopping up squashed flowers with!
