Technique Tuesday- Flower Power

I wanted to give you a little tutorial on how to make a dimensional flower. You can use it as embellishment for a gift, or even to put it on a scrapbook page! I used my example for a gift that I will be giving to my niece this Halloween.

You will need to cut some strips approximately 1 inch wide by 12 inches.

Pleat the strips. Then cut the strips depending on to what size you want the flower to be. Then place the cut strips on top of each other and staple together.

I then used a circle punch to cut out the polka dot paper as the center, and added an alphabet sticker. Happy flower making!
