1)To start just cut 6 strips of paper about 1" wide and 4" long. Of course you can alter the dimensions to get a different size flower.
2)Next just take some scissors and trim both ends of each flower by cutting out a triangular shape as seen on the flower above. I then inked the edges.
3)I prefer using mini glue dots to help hold my paper in place as I make the flower. Now to create the flower I just begin laying one strip down at a time until it makes a full flower. If you use two different pieces of paper, be sure to alternate them.
4)After my base is made I punched two sizes of circles out. I roughed up my edges and inked them. I used glue dots to glue them down to the center of my flower. I will usually curl up my edges a little as well.
5)For the center you can use any cute little embellies. I had some beads laying around so I just strung some silver wire through them and curled the ends around the end of a paint brush.
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you all many Blessings!!
