I love to find new techniques for making one of a kind embellishments from scratch, it makes me feel so crafty!
While surfing the web the other day I found this fabric flower tutorial:
I did make a few out of fabric and then I figured I would try with paper. (instead of using two of the larger flowers as directed on the tutorial, I traced and cut only 1 for the base). Here is my result:
You can "kick it up a bit" by printing the patterns at 50% for smaller flowers or at 100%+ for bigger flowers. You could also try the same effect using premade flowers of the same type (or get funky and use different types!).
Have fun making your own flowers!
