I've admired the craft kits listed by thehandmadeflorist on Etsy for some time. A couple of months ago I finally took the plunge and purchased one to make. When it arrived, I was just so busy that looking over the instructions felt a bit overwhelming so I put it aside for a bit and recently got back to it.
The kit itself came very nicely packaged. All within a slim box with a nice labeled wrapper around it. The instructions are in a full color booklet and everything was very neat and organized in the box. It was easy to locate each piece and the booklet helped to identify everything.
I started by cutting out all the pieces. Really appreciate the template page and how the kit suggested laying out the pieces from the felt to ensure you had plenty of felt for everything.
The steps in the booklet laid out tasks nicely too. I was easy to finish a part and then come back to do the next task at a later time. I ended up working on this in small segments over a 2 week period.
I think the hardest piece to put together was the sunflower but it was also the most fun. Since I don't have a glue gun (I always make a mess of them and eventually they stop working for me cuz I'm just not good at taking care of them), I used E6000 adhesive instead. It meant sometimes having to be a little patient when waiting for glue to dry and having to hold pieces together a little longer. To hold the wound up center of the flower while the glue dry, I used a velcro cable tie. I found I could use alligator clips from a tech kit to hold the petals for me as they dried (see image).
The finished project looks so pretty and is going to be a great sunny addition in my home office. I'd definitely recommend any of kits from this Etsy shop.
