flower tutorial

I don't know about you but I love being able to create my own embellishments for my scrapbook pages. Lou has made this stunning page using Fancy Pants Like Father Like Son papers and has embellished the page with three handmade flowers.

I have had a go at creating the flowers and put together a step by step guide for you.
You will need....
Silicone glue or foam pads

Punch out your largest circle, this will form the base of your flower.

You will need 7 circles using the middle sized punch.
The smallest circle will form the centre of your flower, you could use the middle sized circle if you prefer.

I have inked all the edges of the circles both front and back but for an alternative look you could distress them.
Fold both sides of each circle in to create the shape below. Glue the bottom section together.
Add some glue to the centre of your base circle and start adding your folded circles leaving a small gap between them.
When you have added all the circles it should look something like this.
To finish add the smallest circle to the centre of the flower using silicone glue or a foam pad. Lou has also added a button.
Don't forget this months challenge, all you have to do is create a summery page and include distressing somewhere on your layout. You could be in with the chance to win a £10 e-voucher and the opportunity to join the design team in creating an example layout for the October challenge. All the details can be found here.
