I am guest designing again this week for Tuesday Morning Sketches, and our challenge this week is to make homemade flowers and use them in a project! HOW FUN!!!!! I love this kind of challenge, and have created a quick tutorial for you for the flowers I used on my project. Be sure to hope over to Tuesday Morning Sketches to see our fabulous giveaway, and participate in the challenge this week!!
punch out scalloped circle from whatever paper you want to work with.
2. Using your paper scissors, make a cut into the scalloped circle,
that looks like this!
4. Using a mini-mister or spray bottle, spritz your scalloped circle with
some water to make the paper a bit more pliable.
paper piercer because the very inside is a bit hard to work with at first.
6. Once I have the beginning of the flower formed, I continue forming
the flower with my fingers.
9. Using some Scotch Quick Dry glue I adhered the bottom flat piece of my scalloped circle to the base of my flower.
I ended up making three of these little guys for my card.
After they dried a bit, I spritzed them with some Silver Smooch Spritz to give them a bit more 'something-something' (haha).
