It can be tiresome sorting through jars and packages of flowers, only to find that you don’t have any that are the perfect color for your project. Why not make your own? It’s not as hard as it looks. You will always need some sort of flower die cuts for the petals, and then something for the center, and perhaps a few leaves. The flower I’m showing you this week has 3 plain daisy shaped die cuts for the petals, and then 4 spiky sun shapes for the middle — you could also substitute a smaller flower for the center. Ready to do this? You’ll be amazed how easy it is!
The past few weeks, I’ve been using plain shapes to make other embellishments. This week is no different. I want to show you how you can use a heart punch to make flowers. And these flowers are dimensional and look great with plain or double-sided papers. These are great for cards, scrapbook covers, package toppers and lots of other projects. Of course you can vary the side and make teensy tiny flowers or great big ones like I did this week. My heart punch was about 1.5″, so the flower is approximately 3″. I also added a doily, a small flower for a center, and adhesive gems to finish off the card. Enjoy!
