Hand cutting and shaping the flowers

I quickly discover that to get the size flowers that I want for my explosion boxes, I will have to hand cut the larger blooms. Thankfully I am still a child at heart as I absolutely love cutting (and colouring) and so this does not present a hassle to me.

I am so lucky in that I am able to cut, colour, shape and glue the flowers whilst on the long drives between places as I do not get car sick at all. So while I chat and listen to my hubby and watch the scenery past, my fingers are busy if I want to craft.
