Have you noticed on all the blogs that everyone is making paper flowers... all kinds of paper flowers? Well, I have to and here is one of mine.The paper on this card is from one of last year's designer paper sets called Taste of Texture. I always loved this paper and luckily hoarded most of it, so I could make this very simple card that I absolutely love. I added some Black Grosgrain Ribbon around the card and the greeting from Whimsical Words was stamped in Basic Black
The flower is made from old dictionary pages. I punched out 6 scallop circles punches of the dictionary page and scrunched them all up, one at a time in my hand. Then I flatted them out and layered them so they weren't all aligned and put a brad right in the middle to keep them together. Next I took one layer at a time and wrinkled it up towards the middle until all but the bottom layer was scrunched up. Then I just played with it, pulling pieces down or re-scrunching until I got it to look the way I liked it. I removed the black brad and put it through the holes of the of the small red buttons from the Playground set and used a glue dot to adhere the button to the center of the flower. The flower was adhered to the card using glue dots as well.
That's it. I hope the flower instructions are clear enough. I'm sorry, I don't do tutorials. I've seen several on people's blogs, but I cannot remember where. If you do a quick search you can probably find a visual.
