This weekend I was very happy to attend my friend Kylie’s bridal shower. I wanted to make something special for her for her big day, so I sent her a text a few weeks ago to find out what flowers and colors she liked.
She told me she likes green and lilies. Lilies aren’t a traditional kanzashi design, from what I can see, and the examples I’ve found tend to be made with inside out petals. I tried the inside out petals, but didn’t like how it looked. So, instead I went with regular pointed petals that I’d dyed two tone green on the inside and white on the outside.
I made two smaller pins with a little bit of my favorite bright green glitter mizuhiki. They were simple enough to make; the hardest part was cutting away the excess backing board after the petals dried.
