Flowers Anyone?

Hey there ladies! It is Tuesday...Technique Tuesday at Mosh Posh. And today I am going to share how I created the paper flowers on my November layout, "Tiny Princess." First, here is a look at the paper flower that I created on my layout...
So versatile, don't ya think? I can see them on a fall layout, like I designed here, spring, or summer layout. Here are the steps I take to create my paper flowers...

Step 1: Gather supplies: double-sided patterned paper, paper trimmer, crop-a-dile, brad, and cutsie center embellishment.

Step 2: Cut paper to desired length depending on the size appropriate for placement on your layout. The thickness is also optional, but I usually cut the strips to 1/2 an inch thick. I also tend to use 5 strips to make a flower.

Step 3: Punch a hole in both sides of each strip.
Step 4: Loop the strips to where both holes meet and insert a brad to hold the strips together.
Step 5: Add an embellishment to give a finished look and to cover the overlapping paper.
Ok...there ya have it...S-I-M-P-L-E! These really are easy and I just love how the paper you choose can be the perfect complement to your layout. Nothing upsets me more than to be in the "scrappy groove," and not be able to find a flower or other embellishment to match what I have going. If you use a paper flower like this, there would be no worries! Hope everyone is having a wonderful day and Happy Early Thanksgiving!

I already tried to make one of the flowers like you made, but it didn't come out so great! Thanks for the tutorial. Hopefully next time it'll come out better!
