~Handmade Wedding gift~

Last Saturday, I went to my ex-schoolmates wedding.. Buat dekat Dewan Sri Melati, Putrajaya. Betul2 depan Istana Kehakiman. The bride was in the same batch as me while the groom is a year senior. The wedding then turned into a mini reunion for us Jiwarians :) Met a teacher there too :) The ever lovely Cikgu Jimah :) Since I didn't have time (and transport) to buy a gift for the couple, I decided to give them my handmade gift. A pot of flowers!

My wedding gift to them

Nylon stocking flowers arrangement
It took me about 4 hours to complete it. The white pot is from IKEA and the nylon stockings are whatever left lying around in my stock.
I hope their love will bloom always, like the flowers! :)

~Thumbs down for MYFASHIONSTYLE.COM!!~

Ok, I purchased 2 winter coats and a shirt from the website on 17 December 2010.
I got the confirmation order that the items are available, and paid a sum of RM174.
Then, after they received the payment, they said 2 of the items are not available. Asked me to change. Pulak.
Aku pun tukarlah..2 kali jugakla tukar. Last2 change to another coat and shirt which is RM9 cheaper.
They told me that I'll received the items in 2 weeks. Penipu betul. Sebulan lebih baru sampai! Penat la aku email tanya. Dahla sampai pun tak cukup 1 item. With a note asking me to change it again. Berapa kali nak tukar ni???
I've emailed them to cancel the order ( before CNY).3 kali ok.Tup2 lepas CNY diorang hantar jugak baju tu. BUT, wrong colour!!!
Buta warna agaknya. Order hitam, dapat biru. If ada notification bolehla gak. Ni main hentam je.
Ini boleh menimbulkan amarah. Bangang betul. Da isi complain form, email berjuta kali pun, tapi tak dilayan.. WOI..macamana korang buat business ni???!@#%^&
I just want my refund!!! Balance RM9 tu boleh je korang buat senyap..Sengal.

Marahnya aku..
Marahnya aku..
Marahnya aku..

~Tutorial-Making A Simple Nylon Stocking Flower, Part 2~

~Continuation from previous post PART 1~
Now that we have 5 petals ready, it is time to assemble it.

Divide the white stamens into 2 by using a floral wire. The amount of stamens used are according to your liking (and budget of course! :P)

Hold the stamens and proceed by adding a petal to it. Tie the petal and the stamens together with thread.

 Continue adding all petals, one at a time. Arrange it nicely.

Then , tidy up the joining point with the floral tape.

There you go, a simple nylon stocking flower which can be turn into bunga telur or bunga dulang :)

*Tips : You still can shape up the petals by pinching the wires eventhough it's already done.. However, be extra careful as the stocking are easy to be torn. You don't want to redo the whole process again rite.

Below are example of a single tone flower. I pinched the outer frame slightly and used crepe paper to substitute the stamens :)

Do try this ya :)

~Tutorial-Making A Simple Nylon Stocking Flower, Part 1~

Hey ya! :) Let's us try to make nylon stocking flower together.This tutorial is a very basic one. No intricate design whatsover :) 

Simple Nylon stocking flower
You will need nylon stocking (exclusive for flower making,not to wear!) Either single or dual tone. The single tone is cheaper, around RM1.50 per piece. The price for the dual tone is higher, RM2.++ (sorry can't remember the exact price :( )
I used purple stockings, white stamens, green floral tape and silver wires in this tutorial. The colour can be changed accordingly to your liking.
*Tips : Buy brightly coloured stocking or darker colour. As it will be stretched, the stocking colour will be softer/pale. Unless you don't mind. Haha
The materials
*Ensure that the wires are not too soft as it cannot retain the shape of the flowers. Most crafts shop sells two type. The softer one is for making dip flowers while the harder one is for stocking flowers. Make sure you buy the correct one! The wires come in gold and silver along with few other colours.

1) First of all, cut the silver wires into 4. Then, make a loop by twisting the end together by using a plier.

*You will need to twist 5 wires to make 5 petals flower

2) Next, carefully wrap the loop with stocking, starting at one end.

The back and front of the petal must be fully covered and stretched before tying it with thread. Do not overstretch it as the stocking can be torn easily.

Repeat the step until all 5 petals are nicely wrapped. Snip off the excess stockings with a pair of sharp scissor.
*Tips : Hold the petal as the picture below. Using your left thumb and ring finger, stretch the excess stocking while cutting it. This way, you'll get a clean cut, and save the stocking a lot. 

 There you go, 5 petals ready to be assembled. Bravo! :)

*If you wish to make flowers with more petals, like roses, you need to make around 14 petals or more.

That's all for now. To be continue in part 2. Stay tuned :)

Ok, I know bunga bukan exactly purple colour :P Plum colour kan. Argued with my sis at the flower shop.. Banyak sgt purple nanti tak naik pulak seri hantaran..Plus, I think this colour is rich, nampak expensive. The other purple looks cheap, tak cantik. Bunga letak 4 ja coz my sis budget.hehe :P
