Pretty Paper Posies

Hello, Ann here today from the AG Blog Design Team and the blog: Annmakes.blogspot.com.  I have more flower power love to share with you today!  Here is my latest project:



To make this I used two sheets and a scrap (I keep the little bits left over)  of some handmade paper I made.  Of course these were made following the Original Arnold Grummer Pour Mould method (link to video).  I like to use my handmade papers just like any store bought paper, and I dare to treat it the same way in the art making process.  For this project I wanted to play with some new tools I got.



1.  I cut strips of paper according to the measurements as suggested by the makers of the "Flower Punch Board" and then I proceeded to punch and score according to that manufacturer's instructions.  It was easy and quick to do.




2,  Once I had the strips prepared I then folded, accordion style, the flowers.  I used some double sided adhesive to keep the petals down.  I stacked aa extra small flower on top of a larger flower and glued.




3.  To make the centre of the flower I used a Paper Punch and made the flower burst shape.  I glued that to the centre too.  (See first picture)

4.  I added a vintage button from my collection and some sparkling glitter glue.




5.  To add some dimension to this "Posie" I inked the edges with some chalk ink.  Now my flower is done and is ready to be used in another project or even as a gift topper instead of a bow!


I hope that you are inspired to make some handmade papers and go play with your scrapbooking tools in new ways.

Supplies:
Handmade paper (mine)
Chalk Ink in "coral"
Aleene's Tacky Glue
Double sided tape  3m
Button (my stash)
We R Memory Keepers "Flower Punch Board"
Fiskars hand punch "Burst"
Glitter Glue in pink (Dollarama)

Thank you for stopping by, and please go over to my blog where I share lots and lots of how to's!
