“Avoid being impatient. Remember time brings roses.”

This weekend I had an obsession with making paper roses. So obsessed that I made over 20 of them. It was fun and I used up some scraps that I've had *FOREVER*. It's a bit time consuming because I had to cut my flowers by hand because I don't have a cricut or a punch yet, but it was still fun. It's been a while since I did anything like that. I have absolutely no idea what I'm going to end up doing with all of them, I was just making them to make them, they'll eventually go on a layout or something.

They turned out really pretty, once I have a cricut again I have several ideas rolling around for projects that will need a bunch of pretty roses.

These two are my favorites, zebra and hot pink imagine that lol. I do know these will be used real soon!
