Ok so for mothers day my idea was to make a dozen different kinds of flowers - like one of duct tape or w/e, some different types of fabric ones, maybe tissue paper or sculpey clay or crochet (I can sortof crochet) etc. and then stick them in a vase or soemthing that she could put..somewhere. Is that a dumb idea? also, does anyone have any links for flower tutorials / ideas that I could use? I have a few:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=25125.0

I don't even know if I'll end up doing this - do you think theyd all look tacky together? And how would I attach stems / what would I make the stems out of? I guess I could use those long toothpick type thingies for shish kabobs..anyways any advice or input would be great

There are tons of flower tutorials on Craftster: tissue paper, duct tape, fabric flowers, flower pens, and I even think I remember seeing a flower-shaped cookie on a popsicle stick. You can probably just search and you'll get tons of ideas.

I'm new at this so I hope I do OK.  I love the idea of making flowers to give as a gift and  can recommend instructions to two such projects.  The first is to make a set of flowers that are actually pens and therefore are very useful as well as beautiful http://www.craftelf.com/Craft_elf_general_Pot_of_Flower_pens.htm The other is for tissue paper flowers http://www.craftelf.com/Craft_elf_general_Tissue%20Flowers.htm which look quite nice on a table in a vase and can be made in a variety of colors.  Check them out and let me know what you think.
