Hello, and Happy International Scrapbook Day!!!  One of my favourite things to incorporate into scrapbook layouts, and cards too, are flowers! There are so many wonderful premade embellishment ones on the market…paper flowers, chipboard flowers, sticker form, fabric flowers, and so on…

Sometimes, it’s fun though, to create your own…especially when it only takes a few simple supplies, and about a minute’s worth of time. A single minute was all it took to create this fun tissue paper flower that I used as an embellishment on my layout.



(Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics; Patterned Paper: Crate Paper; Paper Doily: Dooddlebug Designs; Enamel Dots: My Mind’s Eye; Flower and Leaf Die: Sizzix; Sentiment Die: Paper Smooches; Decorative Brad: Basic Grey; Washi Tape: Bella Blvd; Premade Die Cuts: Crate Paper, Pink Paislee; Star Sticker: Crate Paper)

You too, could make one in just these few simple steps!

1. Gather supplies: flower die, tissue paper, decorative brad, manual die cutting machine.


2. Fold and cut tissue paper to create 7 layers, and run through die cutting machine.



3. Insert a decorative brad into the center of the stacked layers.


4. Gently fold up the top layer, followed by the second, third, and so on…


5. Voila! It really is as simple as that! A quick and easy flower to incorporate into your next layout.



Thank you so much for joining me today!!! Wishing you a happy and inspiring day!!!
