Paper Flowers

It's still Thursday - barely I know, but I wanted to share this today and my list of 13 is below. I created this ATC for a "love flowers" swap. I wanted to be able to participate in the paper flower challenge at the PAMC blog as well. I did veer a bit from her tutorial as I used my SU Scallop Circle Punch and some scallop=y, flower=y Cuttlebug die to create this instead of cutting out my own circles. I used some old dictionary pages, some buttons and twine to create them.

Isn't that just magnificently fluffy?? I love it all fluffed out like that!! I just cut at all the little divets and layered and fluffed. I know they will flatten out some in mailing, but they should easily fluff out again should the recipient wish to do so. I will be making more of these I know it!


Here you can see all the different colors that I used. I hope everyone enjoys them!!


I hope your day was lovely! Tomorrow is Friday and I'm looking forward to it!
