Hello.......... Todays post is going to be all about paper flowers I do love them and have quite a stash of the little beauties.
Here at the Summerhouse there seems to have been so many Birthdays in January, so I decided to make Paper Flower cards for two of my crafty friends who happen to share the same birthday.
First up I had a 50th Birthday card to make and decided I would make a celebration wreath of lovely paper flowers. So I started off by sticking a cardboard wreath onto my card blank.
Then it was time for the fun bit layering up my flowers and adding buttons and beads, whats not to love.
Then using glue dots I stuck them onto the cardboard wreath, so simple but effective.
Then added a cute little ribbon
The tricky part was making the teeny tiny '50' to sit in the wreath which I cut by hand with decoupage scissor, before covering in a layer of glitter glue.
For the next card I made a couple of two layer flowers and also a four layer flower then added crystals
I've not really done any card making in a while and really enjoyed playing around with paper flowers, buttons, beads and glitter, a nice change from all the crochet.
Never fear though I'm still in blanket making mode too.
