Making My Own Flowers

There are tonnes of utube clips out there on how to make flowers. Thought I would take some time to try it out myself. I pulled out some Prima pattern papers I had stored away for ages and rang them through the Big Shot Sizzix machine using the Tim Holtz Tattered Floral Die.

I diecut seven large flowers and 4 small flowers. Once they were diecut I rubbed a little water over the back off them and scrunched then carefully unfolded each piece and kept going like this layering all the pieces until they were all done. Then I put a brad through the centre and zhushed it up being careful not to tear the paper.

Once dry (usually take an hour or two) they are crinkly and hard and look fabulous. You could bling them up with glimmer glam or mist, sray on adhesive and glitter, add sparkly brads and novelty centres!! the mind boggles!! Here are a couple of experimental ones.
