Thanks for visiting oh, what a pretty thing! My name is Emily and I'm a lover of all things pretty, crafty, and joyful.
I just want to start by saying that I made this blog about two months ago and didn't know how to get it started. So, I decided that I would just get right into it, starting with a tutorial on my new favorite little craft, paper flowers!
Please forgive me for a few things...
1. my newbie blogging skills
2. my nasty nails - we had family game night on Sunday and I was getting into it and bit all my nails off (gross and a bad habit, I know).
Paper Flowers are a lot of fun to make, and you can make a really beautiful arrangement when you're done!
1. Start with scrapbook paper of your choice. I like cardstock that has a pattern, the thicker paper is easier to work with. Also, a plus if you can find paper that has color on both sides.
|2. Start cutting your spiral. You can use a pencil and then trace your lines OR use freehand with your scissors! Try to cut making the edges scalloped to add a little dimension. It doesn't have to be perfect!|
|This is what your spiral should look like!|
|3. Start rolling your spiral in. Starting with the outside edge, roll the pattern IN so you only see the back of the paper.|
|Your rolled up spiral should look like this.|
NOW LET IT GO!
|4. Hold the flower in the palm of your hand and gently adjust it to the size and shape that you are happy with.|
|5. With a glue gun, put glue all over the bottom part of the flower and then set the rest of it on top of the glue. Adjust the paper how you desire.|
