  1. Those orange peel flowers must smell so good :)
    Love the egg carton flowers - very creative!

  2. Clever uses of unexpected materials.
    I've seen some cute rick-rack flowers, but have not tried that technique yet. I tend to stick with fabric.

  3. The egg carton flowers are very pretty! I saw some fun duct tape flowers when I was at the doctor the other day.

  4. My 11 y/o cousin makes awesome tape flowers. I'll have to get her to teach me sometime!

  5. Neat ideas! I love the egg carton ones so much!

  6. It's crazy what you can do with duct tape these days (and the colors!), love the orange peels idea too! Happy Friday!! ♥

  7. The orange peel ones are wonderful!

  8. They're all cool, wonder what happens to the orange peels.

    The only weird thing I used was beer bottlecaps for magnets or pendants.

  9. We just posted my daughter's duct tape flowers on Monday. =0)
    I want to try those egg carton flowers - so fun! And the orange peel flowers would make a great table centerpiece.
    Thanks, Valerie! Happy Friday to you.

  10. The egg cartons are really cool. And I bet the orange flowers smell great as a center piece!

  11. I will be saving all egg cartons from now on!! Those are beautiful!

  12. What a great mix of materials! I didn't know that you could make roses out of orange peels.

  13. Fabulous flowers! Those orange peel flower are so neat and must smell amazing.
