Wanna know how?

Today's post is a tutorial for layered paper flowers?? I love using them on my L.O's in some manner or form. So I thought I'd share it with you.
This is especially for Jo x

Cut 3 or more shapes in descending sizes....I used circles for speed. The more layers you use the fuller the flower.

Ink the edges, distress too if preferred & crumple for texture.

Layer on top of each other, hold tight & pierce in the middle.

Secure using thread, a brad~upside down works better, or stitch a button right through all layers (no piercing needed then.)

Tie or stitch your button, then adhere to the stack with mono or double sided tape.

Voila!! A lovely paper flower in a jiffy!! Hope it was helpful??
