I should not be allowed in craft stores alone!

I'm sure I'm not alone in this, but I should not be allowed in craft store unsupervised...ok maybe I should.  Anyway I had to go find some bobby pins to finish an order for an amazing friend at work.  
I went into Michaels and showed great restraint, at least I thought so.  They had so many of their jewelry supplies ON SALE!!! 50% OFF!!!  and I walked away because they didn't have what I needed.  So sad, really.  So then I went to JoAnnes and found these!

While I was there (and here comes the unsupervised part) I found these cute kits!

Not on sale!  However they looked so fun!  Now I've made the flower bracelets/watchbands, but I wanted to try this one and it had everything in one spot.  My box was open and the instructions were missing so I had to wing it, but check out everything it had with it.

and this is how my Non instruction version turned out.
Not to bad right!

Now for the zipper flowers! The kit includes enough stuff to make 6 different flowers, 3 small and 3 large.  You can make them pins or clips.  If you can't tell I'm a little excited about this one.  Check out everything that comes with it!  Sooo much stuff to play with!

By the time I got done playing (and realizing that I am way to old to sit on the floor that long) I finished Three  of my flowers!  So far these are all pins, I'm sure I will make the others very soon. (once my back forgives me haha)

I think they are pretty cute.  How about all of you?

So if you ever think that you want to give something a try....but don't want to buy ALL the stuff to find out you just don't like it...look for some of these little kits! You might just find a new obsession, at least until the next one pops up.

Thanks for looking!
