Paper Flower Tutorial



These are the flowers I used in the corner of this frame:



And this one:

They are really easy to make, and I'll walk you through it.



After you've picked out your paper, draw 3 circles in the back; A small one, a medium one, and a large one. My large one is about 2" wide. Don't worry about drawing them perfectly- you won't be able to tell once we are done.



I edge the circles pretty darkly in ink, so when we put it together the layers stand out from each other.



Now crumple them up. Get lots of nice creases in there.



Then highlight each of those creases with ink.




Stack the layers and secure with a brad in the center. Sorry this is so over exposed- I got frustrated with my camera, and gave up after a few shots.



There's your flower! I think it really finishes off a picture frame. But you can use it on cards, scrapbook pages, and a million other places. Just use some hot glue, and stick it where you want it.

Very cute. Did you see the ones on my ScrapBlog? It'd be fun to combine the two. Totally linking to this, btw.

Who knew you were so stinkin' crafty? Were you hiding this talent the entire time we were roommates, or did Kurt bring out the magic in you? I miss you!
