Paper Flowers

A quick tutorial for today! MAKING PAPER FLOWERS.

I would love to say this is an original idea, but it's not. It an idea from the Kaisercraft website.


Lets gets started. Here's the supplies you will need, 2 punched/cut out circles (I have used 2 Scallop Circles), some scissors, and a brad.


The first thing you will want to do is mark the centre of the circle with a pencil, it doesnt need to be exact, but close enough. Then you will need to make equal cuts around the circle, not quite to the centre. The scallops make it REALY easy to know where to cut. Do this to both of the circles.


Next take one of the cut sections between your fingers and 'fold' them in half. Continue to do this for all sections on both circles. (sorry the pictures are small) Put a small hole in each of the circles to put a brad through, place the circles on top of each other and place the brad in.

And thats IT. Here is a card I made with the flowers. (I plan on using them on a scrapbook page SOON. They are very quick and simple, and so effective. They give a ncie amount of texture to any project.

I just found your blog today by way of a link to these flowers. I liked them enough that I scrolled down to some of your previous posts, where I found the tutorial for the origami boxes. I'm sitting here at my desk feeling like I'm on the verge of a stomach flu, but you inspired me to whip out some paper and actually make two of those goodies ~ with lids! I never do this stuff in the morning, especially if I'm feeling lousy, so that tells you how much fun the tutorial was. I'd like to try some different papers and sizes, but thank you so much for the inspiration!
