What a blessed morning it is!! It is cold and snowy and gray outside, but my dear hubby is home all day long and that makes me very warm and happy inside!! I hope you have a ray of sunshine in your day wherever you may be!!!
I am excited to share this tutorial with you because it is very easy and cost effective and the results are fantastic!!! I just love making embellishments out of supplies I have around the house! I have collected a few vintage books over the years and I love using them in as many projects as I can!! Next time you are at a garage sale...check and see if you can find some old books...they will come in handy many times over!!!!
Vintage book Paper or book paper that has been inked to appear vintage
Scallop Circle Punch
Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher
Punch 16 circles out of the book paper.
Layer them together.
Staple with the tiny attacher as shown.
Begin crinkling the flower layers to the center one petal at a time.
Continue crinkling the layers until you get to the last 4 layers. Those layers can be crinkled slightly to the back side of the flower to give it fullness.
Add color to your flower with Distress Inks. I used Scattered Straw and Walnut Stain, but any colors will make this flower absolutely awesome!!!
Here is the finished product. You may even want to add a button or other embellishment to the center for fun!!!If you have any questions, leave me a note or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will answer any questions you may have!!!
