Every Tuesday I post the Tuesday Tutorial over at The Everyday Scrapper. This year I've been thinking alot about being frugal, using my scraps and using my stash. It's abig topic of discussion on message boards and at a crops. With a few scraps (and copying the flowers from manufacturers like Prima) you can create gorgeous flowers in a snap! Here's a super easy tutorial to create a handmade flower from paper scraps:
- Scrap paper, about half a 12×12 sheet
- Gem or flower center
- Edge Distressor
- Needle and thread
1. Cut about 5 circles, each larger than the next, from some scrap paper. I like double sided paper, like this paper from Prima, because you can use both sides of the same scrap. The circles should nest inside one another, the smallest being about 1″ in diameter.
2. Using an edge distressor, rough up the edges of all the circles.
