Last week one of my customers asked me how to make those folded flowers that you can find on pg 123 of the Catalog – from the project supply list I found out that the Scallop Circle #2 Die was used to make them and so I decided to play with paper and made some…I have also made a printable tutorial so that you can make them easily too!
I wanted to make a card today for a very special person and decided to incorporate one of those flowers into it- they are fun and easy to make using just a Scallop Die or Punch, scissors and a brad or button…
I used Always Artichoke for my card base along with my favorites Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler…I made my folded flower using Designer Series Papers from the Deck the Halls pack that you can find on pg 18 of the Holiday Mini Catalog and ran it through my Big Shot using the Scallop Circles #2 Die (pg 207) – the brad in the center is from Antique Brads (pg 187).

The papers beneath my flower? They are also from Deck the Halls – I love that you can use these papers for occasions other than the holidays and they are just beautiful. I used my Eyelet Border Punch to edge the Early Espresso mat and used scissors to distress the sides of it too to give a bit of a vintage touch…
My sentiment is from the Hostess Set Occasional Quotes and I used my Modern Label Punch (pg 203) to punch it out. I punched out two more Modern Label pieces from Early Espresso cardstock and used scissors to trim off the sides and matted my sentiment onto it – which I then adhered to my card using Dimensionals.
I think it turned out great and I am going to be making lots more of these fabulous flowers…you can find the papers I used in the Holiday Mini Catalog which you can view online by clicking HERE – if you would prefer a paper copy please contact me and I will be very happy to drop one in the mail to you.
