Pretty Paper Flowers

I love finding a great project, especially one where I can dig through my supplies and not have to buy anything to make it.  When I’m finished, I’m so proud of myself…Look what I made, and it was “free”!  It makes a great project somehow even greater!

I fell in love with these paper flowers from Such A Pretty Mess, not only because they fell into the category mentioned above, but look at them…they’re beautiful.  Gabrielle is so talented.  If you’re not familiar with her work or her blog, take a look around.  It is stunning.

Her tutorial for the flowers is so easy to follow.  Hers’ look so much better than mine.  In my pictures, you can’t really see all of the pink ink around the edges of the petals.  In person, it is much more prominent.  I didn’t have a flower punch for the center that I loved, so I just tore more paper and inked the edges.  I also put two layered glue dots behind my center.  I couldn’t really get it to stick to my flower, so the glue dots helped, plus they will keep it from caving in.

Thanks, Gabrielle, for sharing this great tutorial, and for all of the inspiration that can be found on your blog!

    Ohh!! your’s came out beautiful!!….and I did notice the soft pink ink on the edges!! Funny you should mention that! I was making some today for a DT page and I only had a dark fusia pink and that pink you used is exactly what I’m looking for! Is that a colorbox ink? Love the effect! Thanks for the shout out for my blog site too!

      It’s Versa Magic’s Pixie Dust. It looks really nice with the cream paper, and like I said in the post, is much more prominent in person!
