I am someone who likes to go looking at time to time at online scrapbook stores. You never know when you can find a good deal or two. So I am looking at all the beautiful Prima flowers wanting them all but for some reason I have not been able to pick the right lottery numbers to achieve this goal. I thought maybe I can find some new flowers to make by watching videos on you tube. Well I found one I wanted to try, and I am sorry I can't even remember the name because I looked at so many. Here is my try at some handmade paper flowers. For the colors I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink pads. Green is peeled paint, Blue is broken china, and the bigger off white one I used antique linen, and the 2 smaller brownish ones I used vintage photo.
They were fairly easy to make. I just took 8 2inch paper scalloped circles for the bigger flower. I used the Ranger's blending tool and did each edge of the scalloped circle making sure to get it well covered. Spray each circle with a squirt of water. Crumple each circle up and then uncrumple it. You take a paper piercer in the middle through all the circles and then insert a brad in that hole. After that you crunch up each layer one at time. Then open it up till you get the desired shape you want. I also sprayed some tattered angels to give them a bit of glitter. The little ones I used a Martha Stewart 1inch scalloped circle punch and only 6 of them not 8.
