I want to share another flower tutorial I came across.
I found it in this e-book first and that was taken from this blog. Lisa's blog "What a beautiful mess" is packed with gorgeous inspiration and she has TONS of stunning flower tutorials...and I know you love those,right:)
You have to check it out and make sure to become a follower. I know you don't want to miss anything she posts.
Back to the tutorial...for some reason I struggled more with these flowers than any other flower I've made before. So don't give up if it doesn't look good the first time.
- thin patterned paper
- border punch
- flower centers
- paper crimper
- circle punch (optional)
- cardstock scraps
- paper trimmer
Start to cut out two ( same or different paper) strips 12 inch x 1 inch
Use your border punch for the edges
Run the strips through your paper crimper. If you don't have one, it will still work.
Punch or cut out a circle. I prefer 1 inch, because I don't want my flowers too big.
Take one the strip and start folding it around the outer edge of the circle. You will not need the whole 12 inch so just cut off the remaining when you're finished all around.
Add some more glue on top of the first layer
Take the other strip and do the same thing.
You will need less than 6 inch of the strip for this layer.
Add a flower center and bend up the top layer and you're done!
Isn't it pretty?
