I love these paper flowers and think they add a great dimension to many craft projects.
They are pretty simple to put together,
Here is a step-by-step picture tutorial.
Punch 8 Scallop Circles out.
Lightly Mist the card stock with water,
I don't wet Whisper White because it is a bit thinner than our colored card stock. You can try without water, I just like the the texture and look of the flower after it dries.
Experiment and see what you come up with.
Crumple each scallop circle.
Un-crumple each scallop circle.
Stack each circle on top of each other.
Use your Paper Piercer and Mat Pack and pierce a hole in the middle of the stack and place a brad in the middle to hold the scallop circles together.
Crumple the scallop circles upwards towards the brad.
If they are a little damp let dry and lightly separate and move outwards.
Voila! A cute paper flower.
Now add to your Project
|I hope you can see that all 3 flowers have a bit different texture. The blue had more water than the red and the white had no water.|
This tutorial is based on using Stampin' Up! Card Stock
I have used lighter weight paper and card stock the only difference is you will need more than 8 circles to get the fullness you desire. If you are using thin paper no need to lightly mist,
Thinner paper will fall apart or tear when you try to un-crumple.
So it's best if you just crumple the paper.

Hope this helps
I would love to see what you come up with.
