ROUND PAPER FLOWERS
Long before I even started this blog, I liked collecting craft punches. They are just so awesome to use and give your projects clean cuts. For this craft, I utilized three circle punches, but if you don't own any, no sweat. Perhaps your cutting skills are far better than mine. I used circles sized at 1", 1 1/2", and 2". See this template. You can also use your Silhouette to make them if you have one, or buy one today at this amazing price!
TOOLS & MATERIALS:
Card stock: two shades each of green, pink, purple, yellow, and blue
Craft punches (Recollections; at Michaels stores)
1. For each flower, you'll need two sheets of tone-on-tone paper for the flower, and green paper for the stem and leaves. Use your punches to cut three circles for the flowers, one of each size, and two for the leaves at 1". Trim the stem to about 1/4" by 5" or longer if you wish. I varied the lengths of my flowers.
2. Glue the flower together first, off centering the circles.
3. Use the same punch used to cut the green circles to cut them into leaves by inserting them back into the punch and cutting quarter moons. Toss aside the quarter moons and use the ones shaped like leaves.
4. Glue the leaves to the stem, and the stem to the flower.
You can use these pretty paper flowers as gift toppers, to decorate a wall, and so on!
Thanks for taking a look today, friends :)
