This workshop kit from VaRIAatjes has been laying around in my house for almost two years. When I first opened the box I thought I could never do it, and so I put it away! But this holiday all of a sudden I had all the inspiration I needed to take it out of the closet, blow of the dust and start making it!

I've been working on this for many hours! But I'm very happy with the result. My desk turned into a mess and I've been trying to decide between many vases, but finally I finished all the flowers and leaves, and I arranged it in the vase I least expected to be right for the job!

  1. Oh! How beautiful! They are just perfect. Yes I can see that it would take hours and maybe days with all of those tiny pieces. Thank you for sharing them with us.

  4. Thank you very much for the compliments! It makes me glad you like them so much and that my time and effort shows! ;)

    Catherine, thank you! I hope you do get around to making them, they are worth the effort! And when you've gathered the courage to pick it up you'll see very soon that it really isn't to difficult!

    Patty, thank you for the compliment! That is florist tape indeed but a special kind I think.. The kit is very very complete and the tape was in the kit. I have some regular floral tape but it is very different from this one... This one is more fine and way nicer to work with. I can really recommend this kit!
