Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing a flower tutorial that I posted over at The Aviary last week. I thought it would be fun to share it here. See the pink flower on my card above, that's the flower I will show you how to make today. You can see the six steps below!
Step1. Die cut or punch five circles out of colored cardstock or patterned paper.
Step 2. Stamp all five circles with a background stamp. I used a background stamp from Paper Wings Productions Text Cling Stamp Set.
Step 3. Fold and wrinkle each layer and then carefully unfold each layer.
Step 4. Take a large paper piercer or anything else that is sharp and make a hole in the middle of all five layers for a brad.
Step 5. Add a brad to the center and then layer by layer fold and wrinkle the paper around the brad. This is what will give the flower a fuller look when finished.
Step 6. Unfold the five layers as desired until you are happy with the finished flower.
Its really as easy as that. There are many things you can do with this flower technique like adding more layers for a fuller flower, you could just use patterned paper instead of stamping, you could distress the edges, emboss the layers, or you could make a smaller or larger flower. I hope you enjoyed my tutorial today and Thanks for visiting!.
