So when I found out the challenge was to make a handmade flower, I sort of panicked! I enjoy making flowers. My biggest challenge is the lack of tools that are needed to make those awesome flowers you see everywhere. I pretty much have a few punches that I can use.
So here is my card creation with a handmade flower:

American Crafts Papers -
Martha Stewart Balloon punch
Fiskars Small Circle punch
Hobby Lobby Ribbon
Basic Grey Button
My Little Shoebox Chipboard Alphas
My attempt was to make a flower that looked like the flowers in the paper. I used a balloon punch for the larger petals and a small circle punch for the smaller petals. I sprayed all the pieces with a little water to make it easier to curl the paper. Once the paper was somewhat dry I adhered the pieces together to form the flower.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Please make sure to check out The Paper Variety! I cannot wait to see the flowers that you all create.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day! I am off to create!
