Crumpled Flower Tutorial

Materials I used: EK Success large & medium retro flower punch, pattern paper, pearl glimmer mist and glue.

Tips: If you don't have these punches you could use a flower die or scissors to cut out your own flowers. You can also use plain water instead of glimmer mist.

Step 1: Punch out 3 large flowers and 3 smaller flowers. You can use pattern paper or solid card stock depending on the look you want.

Step 2: Spray a light mist on to both sides of all the flowers. I used pearl glimmer mist but you can use any color. If you don't have any glimmer sprays you can use water.

Step 3: After you spray the flower carefully crumple them up into balls.

Step 4: Carefully unfold all the flowers except for 1 of the smaller ones. Make sure to leave the edges slightly crumpled. You can also ink the edges of the petals to give a more defined look.

Step 5: Place a small dot of your favorite glue in center of flowers. Make sure you alternate the petals when you stack them.

Step 6: Then place the small flower that is still in a ball into the center of the flowers. If you want a more distressed look take your fingers and scrunch or twist the petals.

Its that simple!! Now you can make flowers to coordinate with any project. They're very similar to some Prima flowers that I bought but much cheaper to make. I learned this from Gabrielle Pollacco and I thought I'd share it with you, thanks Gabrielle.

Thanks for stoppin' by!!
