I ran across this awesome tutorial over at Patty's Stamping Spot where she shows how to create this awesome paper flower using a paper crimper.
For my flower, I used a corner rounder without the guard and scalloped the edges. For the leaves, I used my 1 1/4 inch punch as shown below.....
The center flower is about 3 inches around. So, I made the card a 6x6 and used a card pattern from Originals. The flowers up the left side, corner flourish, word bloom and words on the stem are all from the CTMH Primavera Rub-Ons. Talk about easy! I added a few sparkles in the centers of the flowers for a little bling.
I followed the leaf instructions up until Patty cuts them out by hand. I used my 1 1/4 inch punch instead and then inked them in Sweet Leaf for a bit more dimension.
You can make the leaves different sizes depending on where you put them into the punch.....
Supplies used for this project are all CTMH (unless noted):
Paper: Cherry-O stripe, Crystal Blue CS, Tulip CS, Colonial White CS and Chocolate CS
Inks: Chocolate, Tulip
Embellishments: Sweet Leaf ribbon, Bitty Sparkles, Primavera Rub-Ons
Tools used: Paper Crimper (non ctmh) and 1 1/4 inch punch available now from CTMH!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
I hope this inspires you to check out the flower/leaf tutorial and give it a try! I really had fun creating this flower and will be making many more! Maybe in different sizes too!
Happy Scrappin' and Stampin'
