Use a punch to punch out circles

Hi! Today I am going to show you a fun and quick way to make these great flowers from your two side patterned paper!
Step 1: Use a punch to punch out circle - choose any size depending on how big you would like your flower to be.
Step 2: Fold up one third.
Step 3. Fold up the other side, overlapping the first fold.
Step 4: Repeat with 5 more circles.
Step 5: Adhere them all together to make the flower. Add a brad or other embellishment to the middle.
For the card, I decided to use only three circles to make a different shaped flower. I used the Homespun Chic and Smoothie Shoppe Collection.
I love the look of the whole flower on my gift box and what a quick and pretty way to decorate a gift!
I hope you try this! Have a wonderful day!

  12. You are correct Kerri!!! Just repeat the steps with five more circles and then adhere them next to each other on your project to make your flower:-)
