Just playing with some more paper flowers!

I was looking at Gabrielle P's blog at http://gabriellepollacco.blogspot.com and saw these flowers and thought I would like to make some. It was a lot easier than I thought! Here is what I came up with...not bad for my first try with this technique. This is the link to her blog tutorial. It is NOT a video but works pretty well. http://gabriellepollacco.blogspot.com/2011/10/paper-flower-tutorial-websters-pages.html
This is the inspiration from her blog!


This is what I came up with! I still need to work on it a bit but not bad for just playing around, if I do say so myself! lol Next time I won't color tip the ends and see how that does for me.

INSTRUCTIONS
Supplies:

4 sheets of 12X12 Cardstock (double-sided)

adhesive

bone folder

paper cutter

Instructions:

  • First sheet of cardstock is 12x12 (outside layer of box), score cardstock at 4” on all 4 sides. Cut out 4 corners and fold at scoreline.
  • Second sheet of cardstock, cut to 11x11, score at 3 ¾” on all 4 sides and again cut out 4 corners. You may want to decorate or embellish each section before gluing together. Glue center only to the inside center of first piece.
  • Third sheet of cardstock, cut to 10x10 score at 3 ½” on all 4 sides and cut out those 4 corners. You may want to decorate or embellish each section before gluing together. Glue center only to the inside top of second piece of cardstock.

Tips:

  • Fold all fold/score lines for box and pages back and forth
  • You can embellish box before assembling (makes it easier to add pockets and other design features)
