Paper Flower Video

You may remember an Easter card I made with a tiny paper flower  HERE  

I'd like to share a Stampin' Up! video that takes you step by step on how to make a similar, larger Paper flower found on page 25 of the 2013-2014 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  

1. Using Fun Flowers Bigz L Die, cut Creped Filter Paper (six layers for Tangerine Tango petals, and two layers for Daffodil Delight petals)
2. Load Brayer with ink from ink pad, roll color onto smooth side of creped paper. Repeat this step until desired color saturation is reached. May need to ink both sides of filter paper.
3. Layer flowers in staggered order.
4. Attach together with stapler or pierce center and use a brad.
5. Scrunch flowers from top down to get desired look.
6. Punch 3/4″ circle from Old Olive Cardstock. Pierce center.
7. Prepare floral wire and thread through Old Olive Circle.
8. Attach to back of flower using hot glue.

   Now go ahead and make yourself a paper flower to embellish a card, a book, a favor, a frame or what ever you can come up with! 

(NOTE: you can use any flower die or any Flower Punch for your flowers.  When using a punch, make sure you cover the creped paper with a post it note to cut the creped paper easily)  

Make it a CREATIVE day!
