What's my project you ask?!?!?!?! Well what is spring without flowers??? I'm going to show you how to make 3 different types of homemade flowers for your pages. Here are all of the directions and the pictures will be posted down below. Hope you enjoy and I can't wait to see all of your lovely homemade flowers on your layouts!!
Flower #1 - Ribbon Flower (1st & 2nd picture)
First you'll need an 8 inch piece of ribbon, needle and some thread. All you have to do for this flower is do a gathering stitch across the top of the entire length of the ribbon. Next simply gather the ribbon up with the thread and sew the ends together. Then place a brad or pearl in the center and you will be able to place it on your card or page with a glue dot. Simply right!!! (I can do it and I can't sew!!!!)
Flower #2 - Rose (3rd & 4th pictures)
You will need a scallop circle punch for this one, pattern paper, and a brad. Punch out 8 scallop circles and crumble them up tight. Then un-crumble them and stack them one on top of another. Now punch a hole through the center of all of them and place a brad through them. You will want to scrunch one layer up around your brad at a time. Once you have done this with all 8 layers, simply spread the layers out slightly and you will have a flower that looks like a rose.
Flower #3 - Simple Circles (5th picture)
You need 3 different size circle punches for this one and 3 small pieces of pattern paper. You will want to punch out 1 shape with each punch. Now crubmle them up and unfold. Next layer starting with the biggest on the bottom and the smallest on top. Now punch a hole and place a brad through the center.
Well ladies happy hopping. Next you'll need to stop by and see what Susan has in store for you!! I'm sure it's simply fabulous!!
