DIY Fabric and Paper Flowers
I love having flowers in the garden to cut and place in a vase! They always brighten up a corner. But in the winter I have to get resourceful and craft my own flowers!
First, I began by sticking fabric onto the backside of decorative paper with spray adhesive. I had a picture of this but mistakenly deleted it as I was clearing photos of my camera! :(
Then a traced three-inch circles onto the paper and cut them out.
After that I punched holes into the center of the circles with my handy Martha Stewart Crafts screw punch (love this tool!).
Using scissors I cut four lines towards, but not all the way, to the center holes. Then I rounded the corners to make petals.
With floral tape I wrapped a small piece around the top, creating a knob. I strung four to five of the petal circles up to the top. Lastly I finished it by completely wrapping the stem in tape. I also fluffed the petals by bending some up and down and giving a bit of curve to others.
With Valentines Day coming up they would be a pretty and thoughtful gift for a friend!
