Paper Flower Tutorial

blogged by me domestic goddess On 1/12/2010 11:19:00 PM
As you may have already noticed, I am a sucker for flowers and most, not all my layouts have a smattering of flowers on them. I am always looking for new flowers and new ways to make flowers using my basic stash supply.

Please note :I am not claiming originality on this at all, I am sure these have been done before, but here is my way of making them.

Firstly go gather that circle scallop punch, some light weight pattern paper, I used Jenni Bowlin, some brads, buttons, adhesive and some twine of embroidery floss!

Punch 5 circles

Layer them and make a hole

and add a brad.

Now start scrunching each layer

until all the layers are scrunched up like this.

Now unravel each layer
dah dahhh, you have a cute ruffled paper flower.

Add a button or just leave with a brad

I have been making lots for upcoming projects, so easy to do sat infront of the TV of a night!

You can now jazz up your flower with glitter and ink if you wish, and why not try old newspapers and book pages.

Here is a layout I did of Lilly, using my paper flowers, how pretty do these flowers looked grouped on a page;

Supplies :
Bazzill cardstock
Jenni Bowlin Papers
Creative Imaginations paper
Vintage lace
Mellisa Frances buttons
Tim Holtz ticket
Metal photo corner
JB journaling tag
Hambly overlay
AC Thickers
Maya Road flower and velvet leaves
Blue flowers Crafty Stash

Please post a link to your paper flowers, would love to see.

Thanks for stopping by
