Hey.. ok my friend is leaving this week Sad so I made this for her birthday slash going away present.  Not pictured: some of her favorite snack foods for the trip, two tees and a little panda purse. Just the Kanzashi and jewelry I made her are here.

..... ok this is not real Kanzashi because i just used a glue gun instead of rice glue. This is my first try at Kanzashi. I did it because she is in love with Japanese culture.
 What do you think?Huh?

It's a japanese style of folding fabric to make petals, which you then glue or sew into a flower.
