When I opened the kit and came across this piece of paper from Crate paper, I was immediately inspired by the pink rose in the center at the top of the paper.
I love happy accidents.
I wanted to share with you how these pretty little things came about.
1. Trim a circle. I used this 3" punch for this example, but in my layout I used both a 3" and this 2.5" punch from Marvy. This or this scalloped punch might be fun too.
2. Take your scissors and trim a swirl around the perimeter a few times, getting smaller each time.
3. Roll it up.
4. This is where the happines happened. I rolled it up and wasn't really happy with my flower. I thought it was far too tight and was far too dimensional for my page.
And got this:
And then I made several more in different sizes, lol.
When you are adhering, you can adjust it. And you can hide the end with a brad or a button in the middle of your flower, just as I did on my "At Six" layout.
Isn't Morgan beautiful? She's turning into such a sweet little lady.
Have a great day! Davinie
