How to Make Paper Flowers

Paper flowers are so popular.  This flower starts out wet but when hardened, takes on a Prima flower appearance.   Previously, I did another flower tutorial which you can view here.  You can also read about making paper flowers from designer paper.

My card is for a couple of challenges:

Crazy 4 Challenges – Pink, Kraft, Turquoise, Brown

Challenge Up Your Life – Flip Flop Card

(Flip Flop card tutorial can be found on the Technique Junkie Newsletter’s  Emboss or Die CD)

This card shape is unique and will showcase your shortest stamp beautifully.  My stamp is a new release from Susana’s Custom Art & Card Design and are coloured with Copic markers.

Supplies: Cutting machine (Big Shot in this photo), flower die cut, brad piercer not in photo), water mister (not in photo), cardstock, Stazon ink is optional.

Use 1 or more dies (here I used two). Cut out each shape three times. If you want to add colour to the tips of your flowers, use a permanent ink such as StazOn.

Evenly stack flower pieces and pierce, then insert a brad

Spritz with water.  Be generous with the water.

Scrunch flower up into a ball.

Gently unfold flower.  Separate all the layers.    This will harden when dry.
