The April technique challenge over at Club Scrap is to create paper flowers. I've had an old thrifted dictionary sitting in my craft closet and I wanted to incorporate that somehow. I searched Pinterest and found a whole bunch of ideas. Sadly none of them worked out for me. The flowers were either too bulky for mailing or the dictionary paper was too thin. So I reached for my handy dandy EK flower punches.
Punch flowers in different sizes.
Run an embossing tool in circles in the center of the flowers for dimension.
Stack and offset flowers. Adhere each layer.
Use a smaller flower cut in half for added interest.
There are so many different, creative ways to create paper flowers. Punches seem to be the easiest. I do have another technique I can't wait to share but you'll just have to wait until the Artist Team Challenge on April 28th. I encourage you to create paper flowers and share your work on the Linky Party. You could win a Club Scrap gift certificate!
