Barbara here with another Sunday Inspiration. The technique I am sharing with you today is a great flower maker and can be used with scrapbook paper and also works great with vellum. These flowers will look great on a layout as well as a card. I used vellum on the instructional pictures and on the 1st card.
Start out with squares, I cut 2 -3" vellum squares and 2 - 2 1/2" vellum squares.
Next fold in half on the first side , turn your square and fold in half on the 2nd side. Next, mark a dot 1/2" out from center on each of the two fold lines. (You will have 4 dots)
Now cut on the fold line from edge, up to the pencil mark. Do this on all 4 sides.
Next attach insert C in the punch, and punch all 4 corners. I used punch 305 for this flower.
Fold in each side of the 4 corners.
You will cut, punch and fold all 4 squares in the same manner.
Stack and attach all 4 folded squares in the center. I used a decorative brad to attach.
See the other decorative squares on this card, I used punch 923 with insert B. These are 2 1/2" squares and I punched all four corners but made no cuts. I was able to slide the corners together to make this stair step effect. Those pretty butterflies were made using punch 604 and I punched them out of vellum, too. I colored the butterflies with Copic markers.
On my 2nd card, I used punch 307 to make this flower and this time I used scrapbook paper. The petal edges on this flower are jagged but look spectacular. I love how the different punches give you a different flower petal look.
So, now, get out your punches and make some flowers. Don't have any of these punches?? Click here to go to our shop on the web to place your order, and let us mail them out to you.
Hope you have a great week!
