I have such a treat for you today. It's P.J's turn to wow us with her paper projects - and if you look at her blog you'll see that it is one of her absolute specialities. I think that I will be stealing this idea for my wedding.....because ANOTHER hand-crafted item is exactly what I definitely need. I could also use another 8 months extra to be ready in time with all of the new projects I'll be adding - although as these are described as 'easy' I might just get away with squeezing them in! Any ideas where?!? Read on and let me know your thoughts in the comment below.
You need four different patterns of paper, mine all came from the same book so it all kind of ties together. I cut three circles in each pattern, six large circles and six smaller circles. I did 3" and 2" but it's up to you!
Fold all the circles the same way. It takes no time at all. If you wanted to make a bunch of flowers I would just sit down in front of a good show and fold for an hour or two.
I used hot glue to secure all the larger "petals" to a piece of scrap card stock.
Nothing fancy, just a piece I rough cut.
See how it doesn't lay perfectly flat?
Do the same for the second layer.
I used a cute picture of my Lady, because she's real jealous of the new puppy!
I love this project and the use of the different papers. I will be sorting through all of my craft supplies today and then packing them...so 'sniff' I am not sure when (apart from later today) I will be crafting again until I move. I just hope I can get the October, November and December projects finished in time. Well...I am off to pack more things, prepare more lessons and clean stuff. I WILL be writing more again in the future - but you guys know how it gets when those big life changes happen. I think we can agree that moving to a new country, planning a wedding and holding down a full time job is enough for most people. I WISH I had time to even write about it for you. Soon my friends....soon.
