Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.


I really liked the look of Jillibeans Bean Blossoms, and dug out my fibre collection (much neglected as you can imaging) to have a play. With two sizes of round punch to cut scraps of cardstock for the background, a pritt stick and a button for the centre, they are a simple, highly satisfying, quick and cheap alternative, and can be made in whatever colour you want. Not to mention the fact that the real thing, gorgeous though they are, cost £3.99 for 3. Cheapskate? Definitely, sometimes!!
