DIY: Flower Ring Pipe Cleaners

{picture via Bakerella}
As I was reading Bakerella's new post here, what caught my eye was this flower ring made out PIPE CLEANERS! It was given to her by a fan. I knew I had to try this since I have so many pipe cleaners laying around. So I was in search for a tutorial! I came across the Martha Stewart Wedding site! It shows a video of how to! Such an easy project and FUN! I made a picture tutorial in case you wanted to see it step-by-step =)
You need 1 pipe cleaner for the stem and 6 pipe cleaners of your desired color for the flower
bunch all 6 pipe cleaners together, then twist 5-7 times in the middle
this part will be your ring part
put the part you just twisted under the finger you want to wear it on
(I like wearing my rings on this finger)
then twist
the scatter like this
take each end and curl here
(this is so the ends doesn't "poke" you)
then curl all the way to the ring part
repeat to all
now take your "petals" and fix and arrange to your desired look
it should look something like this =)
You are done with the flower part!
Now to add the stem...
put the middle of the pipe cleaner "stem" under the flower
then twist to secure it
just like earlier steps, roll the stem leaves
almost done!
pinch at end to give a leaf look
Ta-Da! you are done! Wasn't that easy?!?!
My son made a Halloween one for his teacher! She was suprised something so cute came out of pipe cleaners! Hehe!

I was sooooo excited when I heard Angie of Bakerella was coming to Walnut Creek, CA for her book signing!!! I FINALLY met the cake pop QUEEN last Friday!!! I almost didn't go because I had no babysitter! Luckily my mom was off on vacation last week! Whew! It was meant to be! LOL! 
For those of you who haven't heard about her (but I'm sure EVERYONE does!) she came out with her first book of cake pops. There's a bunch of how-to's for cake pops including the BASIC cake balls. Her blog is AMAZING! Wonderful pictures that show each steps! 
I was the 11th in line! I went by myself...the fans in line were GREAT, we all chatted and shared some tips while waiting! =) The William Sonoma staffs were great too, they came out and served us some FRESH pumpkin treats!
Isn't she cute! She took the time to answer Q&A! I was so busy taking pictures that I didn't even hear all the questions! =P 
I caught her doing her famous "hand in the air"! HEHE! 
got a picture of Julie too! =) 
I was so nervous! My heart was first book signing with my idol! She inspired ALL the cake pops that I make, I mean ALL!!! 
I said "I love your page!" I really meant to say "I love your blog, love all your work, you're so amazing!" I was so nervous that that was all I said to her! I'm thinking to myself after..."OMG..really...that's all I could say!?" hehe!
Since I was there, I got my daughter a book signed too. Jaela is only 1, almost 2 years old...Hopefully when she gets older, she'll enjoy this book. Maybe she will be one of the only girl in her generation to have an autograph book from Bakerella's FIRST book =) I know by that time Bakerella would have a 100 books! =P

It was nice to meet you Angie! =)
