Hello Everyone! It's Tara and I have a very flowery Crate Paper tutorial for you today! I'm always looking for creative ways to use left over paper scraps from my projects. These layered Paper Posies are one of my favorite handmade flowers to make and when paired together with repurposed gift-wrap (I used pink comic book paper) it becomes a perfectly up-cycled gift! I like to make few flowers in different sizes, cluster them together on the top of a little package and add a little sprinkle of glitter for an extra special and sparkly presentation!
Use the edge distresser and lightly distress the edges of each circle.
With the water bottle set to mist, spray each side of the circle and shake off any excess water. Work with just one circle at a time.
While the paper is wet, fold the edges of the paper circle upward. As the paper dries the paper will harden keeping the folded shape.
Repeat this process until all the paper circles have been shaped. Allow them to dry.
Take the paper piercer and piece through each layer, secure with a brad or button.
Use a small paint brush and paint on the glue in little sections on the flower and along the edges. Sprinkle the glitter onto the glue and let dry.
Everything I used for this project (the Patterned Paper, Accent Cuts and Ribbon, button and brads) are part of the Emma's Shoppe Collection. I hope you enjoy this super simple tutorial and layering all of those paper scraps together to create your own lovely Paper Posies!!
