Friendzy Friday Wedding Flowers

Remember those kleenex flowers you used to make for weddings? I saw a video for these a while ago and thought I would try to make them myself for this week's Two Scrapbook Friends Friendzy Friday.

You will need medium weight cardstock (I used white), a scalloped circle punch or die (mine is the one inch Cuttlebug die), ink, a brad, piercing tool, and spritz bottle of water.

Cut 8 scalloped circles.

Ink the edges. Be generous with the ink, it will look great in the finished flower!

Spritz the scalloped circles with water. Then scrunch up the circles into tiny balls.

Immediately unfold the circles.

Stack the circles and secure in the centre with a small brad, using your piercing tool to get through all 8 layers. You won't see the brad in the final flower so it doesn't matter what colour it is.

Beginning with the top layer, scrunch up the circle around the brad. Repeat for each of the layers.

Carefully unfold each layer, spreading the circles into a nice round flower. Here is my finished flower. I spritzed it with clear sparkly Maya Mist when it was finished.

And here is my flower on a finished layout.

These are easy and fun. Experiment with different kinds of paper, inks and sizes.

Thanks for looking!
