Jacqueline sent in a short tutorial for today. Enjoy!

Make Flowers from Paper

I love to make flowers from paper. Its a great way to make sure your flowers match your papers and it's lots of fun. The first time I did it I traced around a chipboard flower onto the wrong side of my patterned paper and then cut it out. Then I went around the edges and middle of the petals with my embossing stylus to give it some shape. I then layered this with a real flower and a button.

Recently I did the same thing by tracing around chipboard and prima flowers of different sizes and styles and then I layered them.

You can also make your own flowers by using a stamp. Stamp on to the wrongs sides of different papers, cut out and layer. You could use different sized and styled stamps or you could use one stamp that has what appears to be layers within the stamp. I did that a while ago and loved the effect.
