Good morning scrappy-happy friends!   I wanted to share with you all the tutorial to make the flowers that you may have seen on several of my layouts lately.  They are super easy and take less than 10 minutes to create.

Supplies needed:

  • 2 3/8″ scalloped circle punch
  • scissors
  • brads
  • colorful scrapbook paper

First, punch a scalloped circle (or two!)

How To Make Flowers 1

Cut “petals” into the circle…all the way around.

How To Make Flowers 2

Begin bending the petal edges back.  This is what it looks like when they are all bent.

How To Make Flowers 3

Turn the flower over and press a brad through the center and “pinch the flower to conform to your desired look.

Ta-dah!  Check them out on a project too!
