Kanzashi Flower Pin

I was putsing around the fabric store the other day and ran across some samples of Kanzashi flowers.  They were stunning and oh so fun!  Mind you, I am all thumbs when it comes to hand sewing, and even more so when it comes to Origami, but I thought I would give it a try.  I proceeded to cut some 3" x 3" square fabric swatches and fold away.  Here is my first attempt.  I made this one into a pin to wear on my label.  I am already trying to come up with little ideas for Christmas presents-wouldn't these be festive in pretty Christmas print fabrics?  How about vintage dark green organza with gold pearls in the center?  I would describe how to make these but you would be better off googling Kanzashi flowers for directions!  I'm off to the swimming pool with the kiddies.  Enjoy your day~!  Elle
