I saw this project on a blog recently and fell in love with the flower! You won’t believe how EASY this flower is to make! I folded a piece of tissue paper so that I had 8 layers. I punched through with the Extra Large Fancy Flower from Stampin‘ Up Occasions Mini Catalog. It punched through like butter! Push a brad (any color because it won’t show) through and begin to bunch up the tissue paper, one layer at a time. Fluff it up and this is what you get! I wish I had some colored tissue when I made this but I did it on a whim. I did use the Color Spritzer Tool on it but you can’t really see it very well. Next time, I will wheel on the tissue (I’m thinking the new Very Vintage wheel from the Occasions Mini) to add some color and texture.
The leaves and petals are made with the Extra Large Tow-Step Bird punch. I really THOUGHT I could live without the Jewelry Tag punch . SO glad I convinced myself that I couldn’t because I am in LOVE with that little tag punch!!! It’s so dainty and PERFECT on so many things!
