A Scrunched Flower…


Good morning everyone.  Did you get all those errands, shopping and household duties done yesterday so you can sit back relax and enjoy your families and do some blog surfing today. *smile*  I sure did.

I tried my luck at one of those scrunched up flowers the other day.
Here’s the result:

  and the inside…

I can’t remember who’s blog I saw the tutorial on for the flower; but, it’s really easy, just crunch it up and pull apart. I just remembered how she did it and thought I needed to give it a try.  If anyone out there knows, email me…I would love to give her the credit.  I really liked how this card turned out.  I hope you do to.

TIP:  You need to scrunch the paper up really well, the more the better.  Look for the paper to begin to separate, you’ll be able to see it.  Then pull it apart.

Supplies needed:

  • Cardstock – E. Espresso, Pretty in Pink, W. White, A. Artichoke
  • Stamps – Teeny Tiny Wishes
  • Ink – White, Clear EB
  • Punches – Modern Label, Scalloped Trim and Eyelet border punches, Scalloped Circle, Little leaves, McGills Pine and small flower punches and Two Step Bird punch
  • Misc – Victoria Lace, gold half pearls and satin ribbon (from my stash) Cuttlebug folder


Enjoy your day, thanks a bunch for stopping by and as always email me for questions.
