Sorry the link is so ugly, but here are the most recent printable JoAnn coupons. You can get them by signing up on their email list on their website.

JoAnn's in Santa Monica is a little eehhh...There is a JoAnn Super Center south of LAX...never been there. I kinda felt like a loser b/c I live in LA with it's own fashion district and I don't know where to buy great fabric...well, until I found Mood!! Check it out - LaCienega + Pico.

I saw this yesterday and totally want to try it!! You should try first and then show the results!

Michael's and JoAnn's usually send out coupons in the sunday paper... just about every week.

And organza is so not expensive... one of the cheaper ones you can buy : )

You are in luck. I just attempted to make the organza flower style brooch for some hair clips.

I used this tutorial & it worked wonderfully:

Dern...I just deleted TWO coupons from them this week!!! Definately sign up for them it's well worth having to delete the ones that you aren't interested in to get those 50% off one regular priced item!!!! The last one we got we used to buy foam to make a mattress out of. It makes sleeping in our teardrop soooo much more comfortable!!!!

practicallymarried said...

Ditto on signing up for the Jo-Ann email list...Michael's also regularly emails 40% off coupons. Totally worth a little extra spam. AND Jo-Ann's has organza on sale right now for $2.99/yd. Not sure how many flowers a yard would make, but I bet it's a lot!

Teresa said...

I can't wait to see the finished product!

so so gorgeous! JoAnne's always has coupons for 40% off in the store, usually by the register. I never buy anything there full price. Please show us a sample shot when you've made one!!

tto. jeez.

Ten Thousand Only said...

HAHAHAHAHAHA.

but WHY NOT? please expand.

qasia said...

Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous!!!...but I'd have to agree with East Side Bride when it comes to the boys. These are too dainty and feminine. Don't make the boys suffer!

H-town says, "It looks like prom.... It defies the best-case scenario for wedding apparel, where the guys look cool and tough, and the *ladies* are all dolled up and decorated with flowers."

I did something really similar, or was going to. But then my diy list was at least a mile too long. So I got someone on etsy to do it for a great deal! Totally worth the saved time and frustration. Anyway, I used a big one as part of my diy birdcage veil and wrapped a smaller one with some dried wheat, a feather and ribbon and they were awesome. I also glued some feather on ones w/ a bobby pin for each of my girl's heads. Rad. If you want to see: http://www.seanandalexis.com/2008/12/best-of-wedding-photos-really-short.html
