Simple punched flowers Tutorial #1

 Okay here is a simple punched flower tutorial to get you started
Materials needed: Scrap paper, flower punch(any medium to large flower punch will work), pop dots or foam tape and a tooth pick or skewer for rolling edges



 Punch flower out of scrap paper
 Use tooth pick to roll edges (you can scrunch flower first if you like them more shabby looking)
 Flower should look like the one above
Punch a second flower and roll the petals, not quite as tight as the first flower
 Together both flowers should look like these below
 Use one pop dot or piece of foam tape in center of the not so curled flower
 Then place tightly curled up flower on top of and in the center of first flower
 You can spray with glimmer mist, use stickles or kindy glitz for a blingy look or maybe add a large rhinestone in the center
 These flowers are great for use on cards or LO's and grouping several together in different contrasting colours can add a touch of elegance to your page!!  Any flower punch can be used....have fun creating...next tutorial on flowers will be how to create dimensional flowers!!
