Beautiful Blooms and Tutorials

First off... for those of you that visited my blog earlier today I'm VERY sorry about the late entry. had an emergency this morning do deal with. But I appreciate your patience and understanding!

This is my very first blog hop to be participating in and also my very first flower demo so thank you in advance for sharing in the experience with me!


Start Here -- Monica Edwards - http://scraps2treasure.blogspot.com/

Here are the flowers I will demo today:


Materials Needed
- 1'' circle punch
- hole punch
-mini brad
-water bottle (optional)

Start by punching out 8 circles using your circle punch. I used a 1'' punch for these flowers but any size circle punch will do.

After punching out your circles, crinkle them up in to little balls. A water bottle might be necessary if using thicker type cardstock. If necessary just moisten the paper up before wadding them into balls. After this step gently unfold all of your circles.



After you unfold all of your circles, punch a hold in the centers. You can do this using a hole punch, an eyelet setter or simply using an exact-o knife. After you punch the holes, layer the circles and bind them together using a mini brad. (sold at local craft or scrapbooking
stores)




After attaching all the circles together, start by wadding up the center circle. Continues bunching up the 7 remaining circles.


After all 8 circles have been bunched up together, gently pull the petals apart for a "puff" flower look!



Now add a few leaves and you're ready to go! Here is a card I made using 3 of my puff flowers:




Thanks again for taking a look at my tutorial! If you have any questions I would be more than happy to answer them! Also... If you are interested in winning FREE set of my flowers just leave a comment! I will choose a lucky winner and announce the lucky winner on Monday!
