A few week ago I posted these flowers on my blog. I made them for my invitations. Well, since then I had a few requests to post a how-to on my blog. Well, this is the flower how to. In part 2 I will show you how to make it into a sweet little project.
I am using the Girly-girl collection from Scrap in Style and I love the pinks and the mayaroad sheer albums (also included in this collection).
For the flowers, I used mainly Making Memories blossoms. For years, Making Memories have been making flowers in all shapes and sizes. If you are a determined scrapbooker, I am sure you have a few in your stash somewhere! I took out ALL the flowers I had and started to layer them on top of one another. I would add some ribbons/ net/ texture to make it as interesting as I could. Next, I took a needle and some yarn and I adhered the flower and all it's pieces together using a button... threading it through and binding it at the back. That's how easy it is to make the flowers.
The next thing I am going to do, is make the cards. Add some pictures and journaling, and post it here with a step by step.
Start on the flowers... and I will be back in an hour or 2 to post the rest!
