I have some cute little flowers for you today on my card front. These flowers are hand-made using my brand new "Fringe Scissors":
Although they look quite complicated, they are quite simple to create:
All you need is a strip of cardstock, the longer the cardstock the larger the flower. My cardstock is 1" wide for the widest flower and 3/4" wide for the two skinnier flowers. All I did was add a piece of Sticky Strip on the very edge of one long side and then I used my scissors to cut the snips all along the edge up to the Sticky Strip. Once all your snips are cut, remove the backing from your Sticky Strip and then start rolling your cardstock piece until it is rolled to the very end. Stand up the flower on the glued end and push down from the top to disperse the snips to form your flower. I trimmed a few of the snips towards the center a little shorter and then added a Large Pearl Jewel to the center using a hot glue gun!
My layers were cut using the Scallop Border Punch and layered and I added a bow at the bottom of my flowers!
