Paper Flowers

I tried to find the link where I found how to make these and I failed! The lady was using 3 different sizes of paper flower shape punches. Since I don't even have one flower shape paper punch I bought these flowers at the dollar store. In each package there is 8 different colors in 4 sizes. For the bigger flower I don't use the smaller ones. You'll need a spray bottle filled with water, a paint brush and a stylus.

You'll need 4 large flowers, 3 medium and 3 small. Punch holes in the middle of each flower and attached with a brad. The color doesn't mind, you won't see it anyway.

Spray with water and fold the first layer, I think it works well with the stylus, maybe you can work with a tooth pick if you don't have a stylus. I spray water between each layers before to fold the petals.

This is what it should look like when the 3 first layers are done.

I also use my fingers to help squeeze the bigger petals

After all 3 medium layers are squeezed, it should look like this. Don't forget to spray water, enough but not too much!

It is done now and the fun begins...

With the tip of the paint brush or a small dowel roll down each petals during the flower is still wet

I don't touch the middle Voilà! Here is the result. Leave it alone to dry.

Of course if you want to make smaller flowers, use smaller brads too!

Have fun!
