Tuesday Tutorials - Dictionary/Music Paper Flowers

There are a ton of tutorials out there on how to make paper flowers. I'm going to show you one of my own combining a couple of tutorials I've seen.

Supplies:

music or dictionary paper (you can really use any paper)
scissors
mists, I used lime and olive
adhesive
a button or gem for the centre



To start, hand cut a few circles out of your paper. They don't have to be perfect as it adds to the charm. The more circles you cut the fuller your flower will be.


Next spray your circles with your mist. I started with lime first. Partly dry them with a heat gun (until they are slightly damp). Now wrinkle them into a ball, then open them up again. Finish drying them.
Your flower should start looking like this.

Spray with your second colour on each circle. I sprayed olive (a darker green) on the edges. Your flower should now have more depth to it.

Finally use your adhesive and attach each piece together in the middle. Add your button or gem.
I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial. I would love to see your flowers, link them up! :)
