  9. ~Rebecca Simpson, I have made the cutiest lil flowers out of the Hawaiian Leis (lays) from our local Dollar Tree or Dollar General. they come in many colors and sizes (sometimes). I take them all off the string, I pick and choose the best ones, then glue a few layers together, then put a gem in the middle and add a clip. easy!! Plus I’ve made multi color ones with yellow,blue,orange,purple and red petals- very colorful and can be worn with anything☺. (this is my first time on this site too. many cute cute things I will be making)

  10. We make these too with brads. We also make some with the hot glue. I am curious to know what everyone uses for the flowers. I am looking for ones that I can stack together but not neccesarily ones with stems. I am looking for somewher that sells the loose petals

  11. Just stopping by to let you know that I’ve featured your craft on Family Fun Crafts! You can see it here:

    If you have other kid friendly crafts, I’d love it if you would submit them. 🙂 If you would like to display a
    featured button on your site, you can grab one from the right side bar of your post above.
