Here's One I made Earlier...

There are so many beautiful tutorials about making flowers, many of them using punches in a variety of sizes which my wee crafting budget can not stretch to. So today, I've had a go at making my own using some chipboard flowers by Scenic Route as stencils that I got from Scrap Revolution that cost 99p!
I used 3 different sizes & cut them out from some 200gsm white card. I then ran them through my beloved Cuttlebug using the Victoria folder (all purchased from Scrap Revolution), splodged different shades of  Whispers stamps with darker shades on the edges. I then curled the petals back with scissors, screwed them up into a tiny ball & then opened them up again. Stuck the 3 different sizes together, added a pearl centre et voila!! Can't believe the card stock still looks so white coz my fingers sure aint! Entering it at -

If you dont have a border punch use decorative scissors and if you dont have a paper crimper just fold it :)
