Pretty Vintage Paper Flower Posies.....

By: Colleen ~HappyLittleArt~

Hi Everybody!!! I'm very excited to post here for the first time!!!

I'd like to show you how to make these vintage paper flower posies...


I'm sure you've seen these paper posies around but I wanted to show you how I make them! While they take a little time to create, they are so worth the effort!!

To start...get your supplies ready, you'll need: Glitter and a color spray in a complementary color, scallop punch, vintage paper or print, glue, brads, flower centers and leaves....after that...you're ready to go...

Start by punching out lots of scallops circles....you can use, sheet music, children's stories, dictionary pages...anything really...

Then spray your paper to give it a little color and sparkle and wait until dry!

Then put glue on the edges....I pierce mine and do several at a time....and spoon your yummy glitter over the glue!

Here is another look at the glue all glittered up....pretty huh?!

Then, stack 5 or more of your glittered circles on top of each other and stick a brad in the center....almost done.....

Now crumple each layer towards the center where the brad is...do each layer individually....

Finally, add your decorative centers and leaves, if you want them...and viola...pretty paper posies for your projects!! You can make them in different colors to match your project too!! Fun, Fun, Fun!

Here is a completed flower on my card....

I hope you like my first ever tutorial! Thanks for taking a peek! For a complete list of supplies that I used, you can hop over to my BLOG or just stop by to say Hi!
Have a great day!!
Hugs,

Beautiful! I want to try making these myself, but how big are you making the circles? I have to cut mine on the Silhouette, so I would be very grateful for some measurements :-)
