Paper Flowers


Paper flowers are quite easy to make, cost very little and are a lot of fun to make. I made these while camping. Making them is the ideal use of left over scraps and you can make them any color that you want to.

Supplies: Large, medium and small Circle templates and or circle punches, Brads, acid free patterned papers, solid colored card-stock in coordinating colors, Ink Pads in coordinating colors, corner rounder punch or nail-clippers, pencil, eraser, ruler, disposable makeup applicators, small scissors, small hole punch or thumb tack , etc.

Instructions: Cut or punch large, medium and small circles using Circle templates, circle punches or a saucer using solid and patterned papers.

Roughly divide backs of circles into petals using pencil.

Using small scissors, snip the edges of the petals. Erase the lines at the back of the circles. Round the edges using a corner rounder punch or nail-clippers. Ink the edges using disposable makeup applicators or small stamp-pads. Slightly curl the edges of the petals by pinching them with your fingers. Punch a small hole in the centers of the flowers with a small hole punch or thumb tack and attach together with brads. You can use the same brad to attach them to your scrapbook pages.

Hints:
Make your own patterned papers by rubber-stamping, printing text, music scores or clip-art on card-stock.
Apply Ink to large rubber-stamps with a
Brayer.
I use a dry Sticky Lint Roller as a Brayer.

      Good grief, I haven’t blogged for more than a month, I’m sorry, time sure does fly!

      I got some new family photos, which I have been scanning and I made contact with helpful family members who have given me lots of new information, so I have been working on our family trees.

      I’ve also been trying to finish a scrapbook layout.

      How are you, I hope well?
      Miss you ♥
