Tut: Spiral Paper Flower

Jovie’s laying on my lap sleeping and here’s me bloggin’. I can use a nap but I think I’m ok. I did get a card put together and I even did something extra… followed a tutorial on how to make this pretty paper flower (very fun blog! You should give it a few minutes of your time!!). It took a bit to get it right but once I got the hang of it it’s easy.

If you want to try this flower out, follow the instructions and once you get to the end, let go of the flower and let it expand naturally. If you use a nice heavy cardstock the flower will keep its form. I did though super glued the last two petals together and before the flower was glued on to the card I did push the center of the flower in so that it adhered to the super glue on the last petal. It just holds the shape better for card purposes.

Paper Flower Card

For this card I used Caardvark’s sketch, PTI stamps and paper, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, Fiskar border punch, SU cardstock and ink, and you can see it because I didn’t take a side photo but the flower was created on pattern paper… more Dani Mogstad digital paper from Sweet Shoppe. The part you see is the white part.

I’ll be making cornbread this evening. My first time. Wish me luck!!
