Custom flowers!

Hi Jen from 3catsandabug

Let's learn how to make these flowers for your cards.

I needed to make a Thank you card today and wanted flowers other than what I had on hand. I took some tissue paper and cut and layered them about 12 high and put a brad through them.

The color brad doesn't matter since you won't see it anyway. I started with the top layer and crushed the paper towards the center.

I worked each layer separately until they were all scrunched up.

Then I started opening them up, starting with the top, until I had a flower I liked.

I used a sizzix die and a ms punch for the ferns, branches and border. I added two different ribbons and glued everything together. I inked the entire card face with red ink.
