Home made Paper Flowers :)

Are any of you like me? You get started on something and it seems you just have to do more?LOL Thanks BARB!!!hehe Actually my friend Barb ( Mrs. Miles) ..link in sidebar...got me started on making paper flowers and I am lovin it!! :) She sent us to youtube videos where they will walk you through different processes for different kinds of flowers. I particularly love the ones in the bottom left corner of my pic.The ones that look like carnations.:) The are SOOO easy and it looks like you really had a hard time doing them.LOL I need more practice..don't you think?:)
If you would like to see a birdhouse card I made with one of the paper flowers and leaves..scroll down to my last post.:)

Here's the link to the video for the "carnation" flowers..

    Birdhouse Card :)


    I thought I would try my hand at a new card...and my first attempt at paper flowers.I got the idea from my good friend
  • Barb
  • . She sent us to You tube to see a "how to" video.Just type in "making paper flowers" or something like that.LOL There are soo many different kinds and I know this won't be my last attempt at making them.:) Thank you Barb..for sharing!
    First I folded the card stock in half in preparation of the card.Then I measured the size of the roof.I cut that out ..and then cut a hole in the front of the card.Then decorated the outside of the card. I used my bird on a limb stamp for the inside.I stamped it on white card stock and then cut around it with decorative scissors..so when you look inside the card....it's decorative too.I stamped the stamp and at first it seemed too dark so I just stamped it again to lighten the bird on a limb and I like the way it turned out.:) Oh..for the leaves with the flower... I just folded some green card stock in half and cut the leaves out from that...added a little darker green for the edges and glued them on.
    Wish you could see the card on this side of the camera.It's a lot brighter.:)
