This flower technique is a really fun way to use up some of your leftover scraps! All you need are a few items – a piece of double-sided patterned paper, a circle punch (I used a 2″ punch but any size will do),a larger circle punch (for the base – or you can just freehand cut this),a large brad or button, and some adhesive.
First you need to punch out 8 circles with the smaller circle punch and one with the larger circle punch (I used a 2 1/2″ punch for the base circle).
Next, fold all of the smaller circles in half, and then in half again so that they are bent into four quarters.
Fold back two of the edges of all of the smaller circles so that they form a point.
Now, turn the circles over and fold the edges back so that they meet in the middle.
After you finish folding all of the smaller circles, apply adhesive all over the large circle and start applying the small folded circles as shown
This is what the completed flower should look like
I used a large brad for the center - you can use whatever you'd like - a jewel or button would look great too!! - and I used my flower on this card
That’s it! Have fun using your leftover paper to make some awesome embellishments!
