Dimensional flowers are truly all the rage in the scrapbooking world right now. We've had such a great time seeing how our fans have made flowers using different techniques. Today Jessica Laureano has been kind enough to show us a technique to make flowers using paper circles.
Step 1 : Punch eight small circles. I used my 1 inch circle punch.
Step 2 : Take 1 circle and fold in half, then fold in half again for quartered folds. Open and lay flat.
Step 3 : Take the seven remaining circles and fold in adjacent segments as shown, creating a V shape in each.
Step 4 : Adhere the fold circles, one at a time, to the center of the quartered circle, using the folds as guides.
Step 5 : Finish with a button in the center.
I have seen gorgeous flowers like this before, but didn't know how to make them and couldn't wait to try it out! I made this card in minutes.
Thank you Jessica! It's been so great to see inspiration from so many of you. If you have a great idea that you'd like to see featured on How To'sday, please feel free to send photos and directions to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be sure to check in tomorrow at 9am for our next Mid Week Mojo.
Have a happy, scrappy day!
