Creating paper flowers sounds intimidating....but trust me, it's not! Scrappers of any level can make paper flowers for cards, layouts and even altered projects. The two secret tools are the CCS Circle Patterns and a Corner Maker. Yep, that's it!
Want to know how? It's this easy.
Use the inside of each circle pattern by using each blade to get three different size circles from each pattern, except only one from the smallest pattern. Use various papers for each circle as desired.
Fold each circle in half. Using the Corner Maker, punch each side where the fold meets. Open and fold again the opposite direction. Punch again.
Repeat this step several times until you have a flower. Do this to each circle.
Using the Brown Dual-Tip Pen and a tissue, distress the edges of each petal. Take all of the petals and crush in your hand. Flatten out slightly.
Layer them together adhering in the center, curling various petals upward.
Using a Foam Square, adhere the orange epoxy to the flower and then adhere to your layout.
Easy, isn't it? Who would've thought you could make something so beautiful with circles and Corner Makers? Another tip: The more circles you cut, the fuller your flower will be!
