Today I made my first box top paper flower and I'm hooked! I saw this tutorial last night and just had to try it! It's so easy! I didn't have double sided paper that I wanted to use for the flower so I used some single sided paper and sprayed the white side with a mixture of water, alcohol ink and pearl powder, I love how that turned out, and I will be doing this more often.
The paper I used is a collection called "Melody Ross" by GCD Studios This paper is so me! The alcohol ink colors were pink sherbert and watermellon. I cut my scalloped circles at 4" and then 3.5 inches.
A couple of weeks ago I also watched this tutorial on how to make a paper rose, so I gave it a try and loved it as well. Roses are my favorite flower after all! I used some flowers I'd cut from an old book. I didn't ink the flower until it was put together, which I will not do next time. Ink / color your layers first....
Thank you Lasting Memories for the awesome videos!
Have a very blessed day!
