Circle Flower Tutorial

Hello everyone. Waleska here with a flower tutorial.

When I posted this layout to the gallery I got a lot of questions on how to make this flower so here it is (finally)!

  • Slightly bend the circle in half and punch a small hole at the top

  • String the twine through all the circles (note: if you don't want to use a flower center the smaller the whole and string the better- i'll show you an example at the end :))

  • Tie the string tightly (This part is tricky. The circles will try to go all over the place so you'll have to be patient)
  • Open and arrange the circles to look like a flower
  • Add a flower center (optional). You can also make your own brad using fabrips + itop tool ;)

  • Play around and have fun!

You can make these many different ways by using a variety of material (fabRips, paper, cardstock), different size punches (small, big, scallop), add a flower center or not... it's up to you.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Please let me know if you have any questions.
