Yes, I saw all the cute kanzashis floating around craftster, and just had to try my hand at it. IT took my quite a bit of googling and youtubeing tutorials on how to make the different kinds of petals. and after discovering all the videos were to fuzzy to understand and the text tutes were to confusing, I just fiddled around for a while.

I really like this one. I stole the vintage button from grandmother.
Fabric is salvaged from one of her skirts that ripped.


My first one didn't turn out too well, in my opinion. but the button I found makes it slightly more acceptable.  Wink
The fabric is from and old purse lining.

Lovely!

I am particularly fond of the tweed-looking one.

I've been wanting to try my hand at Kanzashi-making, as well.

Thank you for the inspiration. Any suggestions for a rank n00b?

What's your next project?

Yay! I'm glad I've inspired. Cheesy

First thing I learned - Cut your squares BIG. I tried to make a small flower first, but it was too hard to figure out the folds and whatnot. once you get practice with folding the big squares you can move on to little ones. Once you have practice and you understand what the heck you are doing, it gets easier. lol.

I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do with them... maybe turn them into hairclips or a brooch? but i do know I'm definitely going to be making more of these little cuties!

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
