Handmade Flowers

This week over at Come and Get It Challenges, our challenge is to MAKE YOUR OWN FLOWER(S). This flower is one I have made a few of in the past ( I tried a 2 inch paper rose, but it was just TOO big for a card) so thought I would go with it. I did the flower using printer paper and cut 10 layers with my scalloped circle Nesties. Crumpled it all up, then laid them out and brayered each piece with Pink Passion. When they were dry, punched a hole in the center, added a brad to keep them together, then just puffed if up. This card was SUPER easy, as it is just a Hot Pink base card with a sheet of DP from DCWV's Blossoms and Butterflies Stack. I added Stickles to the flourishes and some MS Butterfly punches, and it was done.
I hope you will come join us at Come and Get It this week so we can see your beautiful creations, too...and to get more great ideas on handmade flowers, of course! Have a WONDERFUL day!

Rubber Hugs,
Julie
