Paper Flowers

I just discovered all the scrap booking tutorials on you tube....Great another source to feed my addiction. I looked up how to make paper flowers and up popped hundreds of videos.....Most of them were intricate and time consuming and needed a ton of special equipment and honestly I couldn't be bothered.....But I did find this one that was super simple and didn't require anything special.....
 All you need is scrap paper, water and brads......They said to use a spray bottle and punches but I couldn't find a spray bottle and refuse to invest in punches. So dampened fingers and plastic cups worked fine....
You need three graduating circles,  mine are approximately 3", 2" and 1" but nothing has to be exact anything will work...

With fingers dipped in water dampen each circle, doesn't take much water.
Crumple paper into a wad....

Uncrumple and stack....

While still damp put brad through the centre, Lay flat and allow to dry

I hot glued three on top of a gift...super simple and looks great. Any body can be crafty if they just know how to google :)


  1. I see next year's Relief Society Birthday table centers!!

  2. Super cute! I still think I could manage to screw it up, though! :)

  3. Cute idea.....I still think it is vastly unfair that you are both crafty and can cook. I don't do either things all that well.

  4. Don't be fooled. The kids do 90% of the baking and cooking in this house!!
