Artificial white Hibiscus flowers

from Clover is easy to use and makes Kanzashi flower making a fun and easy task.

At a trade show I attended, I stopped by the Clover Mfg. booth to see what was new and found out that Clover had released some new Kanzashi Pointed Petal Extra Small Flower Maker templates in January 2012. These are significantly smaller (extra small flowers are 1 1/2") than the ones they had previously released (regular size flower 3") and are perfect to use for making jewelry and hair pins like the one in the photo below.

I decided to see how easy these really are to use, so I picked up a Kanzashi Pointed Petal Extra Small Flower Maker to test out.

Step 1:

Pick your fabric and cut a 2 3/8” x 2 3/8” square and set it face down into the template. Fold the template at the center to sandwich the fabric and make sure it is snapped shut. (The back side of the fabric should be facing out.)

Step 2: Trim excess fabric from around the template.

Step 3: Take a needle that has been threaded with quilters thread (it is stronger and easier to work with)and tie a knot at the end. Look at the template and locate the number one marker on the template. You will begin your stitches from first hole that is labeled number 1. The template has numbers 1 through 8 marked on the template and lets you know if you are putting the stitches in the correct spots.

For the best possible results, you should stitch according to the markings on the template.

Step 3: Once you finish stitching petal, remove the petal from the template. Do not remove the needle or cut the thread at this point.

Step 4: In order to finish the petal, you need to fold the petal in half.

Step 5: Then you need to gently pull on the thread to gather the fabric and form the pleats.
Note: I found that the petals needed an extra stitch to improve their stability and shape, so I added a stitch to each one.
Step 6: You can leave the needle and thread attach to the petal and repeat steps 1-3 to make the next petal.

Step 7: Repeat the process

until you have five petals attached to the needle and thread. Then pull the thread until the petals
form a flower and stitch it closed.

Step 8: Add an embellishment and you are done.
Each petal template comes with a set of written instructions that make it very easy to begin making your own Kanzashi Flowers.Tips:
1. The type of fabric you use will affect how the petals come out. Some of the heavier fabrics require you to work on the bias to get a good petal result. Some fabrics (like the one I used) require an extra stitch to maintain the shape.
2. You can use pins to hold the petal in shape if you do not want to keep it attached to the needle and thread while you work on other petals.
3. It may take some practice to make the petals come out right. As I mentioned before, each fabric will work differently with the template and you will have to make adjustments accordingly.

The Kanzashi Flowers are great to use for decorating hair clips, sweaters, pillows, art journals,

and so much more. If you make the flowers out of rich white satin fabric, they are great to use for wedding décor purposes. You can also use the flowers to make some fun wall decor, like in the example below.

I've got to try white tea and rooibus this week if possible. Antioxidents are always welcome by me.
In the hibiscus tea blend from Peet's they have hibiscus leaves, rosehips,lemon grass, chamomile flowers and cinnamon stick. I'm thinking about trying to duplicate it because I can get big bags of dried hibiscus leaves at Smart and Final and the rest should be fairly easy to come by. I'm making it for a friend who shouldn't have sugared drinks so I'll use stevia or another artificial sweetener in the lemonade part.
