Welcome to Relax and Create 2022.
This is a series of instructional videos for paper florists filmed Live on Instagram. The tone is informal, the learning is fun!
You may notice I speak as if someone asks a question or enters the room. This is me responding to what happened during the Instagram Live.
I will post supplies to go with each project-scroll down to see the free preview of supplies. I will add videos each month to the series.
Thank you for being a patron of the series for 2022
