Arlene here to show you how to make some pretty flowers quickly and easily with materials you have in hand.You’ll need:
Tissue paper, Brad, Hole punch, Scissors, Deco scissors, Mist/ink.
Ready to get started?
First you take 2 sheets of tissue paper
and start folding.
First fold in half and then fold into fourths.
I then took a circular lid and traced it unto the paper. The size of the lid you want to use depends on the size you want the flower. I cut the circle out.
Remember buying those deco scissors when you first started scrapping? Come on, admit it…you have a few. I have about 13…and I don’t have the heart to get rid of them. Well, I used them to cut the edge of the circle. It left a pretty “frill” to it.
Now use the hole punch to make a hole in the center for the brad.
Put the brad through and then gently pinch each layer. If you’re too rough, the tissue paper will tear.
This is how it looks when you’re done.
It looks so pretty like this, but to add more I like to spritz it.
When you spritz it, make sure you’re gentle…and try not to spray too heavily. I try to keep the paper layers separate a bit afterwards.
Now for whole other look: follow all of the steps above, but don’t use the deco scissors. Instead, punch the hole and then cut from the edge to almost the center. Make sure not to over cut or the flower will fall apart.
Now gently fluff and separate the layers.
Again, I inked the flower for that extra oomph.
Here’s the finished product!
These flowers are fast and easy to make! Hope you’ve been inspired to make them!
