Simple Scrunch Flower Tutorial

Hello Homeketeers!

Are you ready for a tutorial today?

I’m going to share with you a tutorial on how to make one of my all time favorite flowers.  I use this flower for all kinds of projects like scrapbooking, cardmaking, gift wrapping and even for some of my party decorations too.  Below I’ll share a  “step by step” tutorial along with some  examples on how to make this fun 3-dimensional flower.  It’ll sure to make your crafting projects look “Scrap”tastic!

 

A fun corsette I created and used my

simple scrunch flower as the corsage for the dress.

Supplies you’ll need.

  • 6 punched circles (1 1/2″ in size and it looks better if the paper double sided)
  • 1 pencil
  • glue dots
  • your favorite distressing ink

Step 1:  scrunch 5 of the 6 circles so they become

more pliable and aged looking. (the sixth circle

will serve as your base.)  Then grab

your distressing ink and ink the edges.

Step 2:  Using your pencil (eraser end), grab one

of your scrunched circles and place the pencil

in the center of the circle and wrap the circle around

it.

Step 3:  Place a glue dot at the bottom of the circle

as it’s still wrapped around the pencil.

Step 4:  Then begin placing each circle on the your

sixth circle which is your base, glue dot side down

so it adheres onto the base.  I usually begin in the

center of the circle and then begin filling in the circle

so it’s even and starts to form the petals for my flower.

Here’s what it should look like once you’ve filled

it in with all your distressed circles.

Step 6:  I take sometime to fluff and work the circles

so it makes the flower fuller.

And Voila, here’s your finished product.

Step 7: You want to take it a step further?

Push down your circles to flatten them from the

center.

 

Step 8: Then cutting another smaller circle, use that as

the middle base and adhere on top of the flattened

circles.

Step 9: Top it off with a fun brad or button.

 

And there you go, a fun 3 dimensional flower sure to

add some scrap flare to your paper crafting projects.

Here’s a few pictures of examples that I created

using my Simple Scrunch Flower.
