Monday morning fun: How to make your own flower soft! And of course more links : )

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend. We didn't do a whole lot this weekend, attended a baby shower (my best friends son is having a little girl in less then a month), did some stamping, wrote a tutorial for Paper Craft Planet and watched a few movies.

We love to watch movies here, at the theater or at home, and this weekend we watched "The Proposal," a cute movie with Sandra Bullock, if you want something lighthearted make sure to rent or buy this cute movie. Speaking of movies I can't WAIT for the movie "2012" to come out. I absolutely LOVE disaster movies, and "2012" is made by the same person who made "Independence Day" and "The Day After Tomorrow," two of my favorite movies : ) 

Ok, on to some links.

Make your own flower soft:  As promised, here is an amazingly EASY tutorial on making your own flower soft, and yes, it does work.  I made some this weekend, have white and a peach, and am going to make some red, blue and green as well.  For glue I used Aleene's Tacky Glue.  To dye the home made flower soft I used a reinker, put my white flower soft in a zip lock bag, added a few drops of reinker and let the flower soft dry (kept the bad open) and was ready to go.

Here are some of my pictures, first is an image I stamped and then added my home made fluff:

This is how I am storing what I make, the large glass container is for the white and the smaller one was an empty clear embossing powder container:
