Flower Power

Flowers are big right now. I made a flower for my purse, (posted on Dec 19th). It was then that I remembered how I had covered my kitchen table with paper mache flowers back in late 1960s, or possibly early 1970s. I put pin backs on them, and had one in every color. I had saved a green one and a black one, and I wanted to reproduce these once again, so I have been up to my elbows in flour and water. It is not as easy this time, as I am having limited success. There must be one magic step I have forgotten about!! I have not decided on what to use for the centers yet, so they are not put together. I have to finish these soon because I have some other ideas simmering in my head.
