It's been a while since I have managed to join in with Less Is More on a Saturday morning, but this is the first weekend I have had in a while all to myself, so making the most of the crafting time!
The challenge this week is to feature hand made flowers. It took a bit of pondering before I remebered a tutorial I found on Pinterest for twine tutorials. You can see it here, it is by a very talented lady called Michelle of Lady of Leisure Ink.
Craftwork Cards - Twine
Uniko Studio - Time
