Resin Flowers!


I used resin flowers for the first time yesterday, as a few were included in the August Simon Says Stamp Monthly Kit. I immediately fell in love with them! Now, I can't wait to get my hands on some more. Of course, cost-conscious-me wants to make my own.

I remember that Kelly Marie Alvarez from Lawn Fawn once had a video about making resin flowers, so I went to look for the etsy store she recommended, Mold Muse, and after much debating (there are currently 254 different molds on the store), I have narrowed down my immediate wishlist to three:

1. A small Sakura flower

2. An assortment of roses
