Paper Craft Wednesday


Paper Craft Wednesday is hosted by Kelli, pop over and see her lovely creations and there are many other people joining in.

I have to admit I am struggling recently to get crafty, my MS is really playing havoc with my body, but I pop over to my friends blogs and get some inspiration from them so thankyou bloggy friends.

I have had a go at making paper flowers, they are about the size of my palm. I used various papers and inked the edges and leaves to give a little extra dimension. I think more practice will help but here are my first attempts.
You have three different size squares, fold them into quarters and fold once more and cut out a petal shape. I Then unfolded them inked petals and joined them together with a brad. Largest at back then smaller ontop. I think they will look quite good on cards.





And yes more cards lol.


The pictures are not brilliant and they look shiny because they are in plastic envelopes for storage.

I really like your mum card and those flowers you made. Did you use a paper punch to make them?

I just cut them out by hand. I folded paper into quarters then once more then snipped away.
