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

  • Paper trimmer

  • Craft punches (Recollections; at Michaels stores)

  • Glue stick

  • Scissors

DIRECTIONS:

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.
