Add Dimension With Folded Circle Flowers

Hello everyone! here are some instructions of making some easy circle flowers that can really add a lot to a card or other project. With Valentine’s Day coming up I thought it might be fun to make one of these flowers with the Cheerful Valentine’s Day Addition and add it to a cute V-Day card.

To start making the flowers you will need your Circle Maker (or you could use your Custom Cutting System) to make two circles.

Take each circle and fold it into eights.

Cut inward on each of the fold lines towards, but not quite all the way, to the center.

Take each petal and fold it downwards in half.

Using a Foam Square layer the flowers so the the colors of the petals alternate.

Punch a scalloped circle with the Scalloped Circle Maker and cut inward almost to the center of each scallop to make petals.

Layer the flowers together with Foam Squares and add a cardstock sticker from the Cheerful Valentine’s Addition to the center of the flower.

Add the flower to a card with Foam Squares and you have a perfect accent!

Want to make the whole card? Here’s how you do it!

Supplies:

Cheerful Valentines Addition

Circle Maker

Scalloped Circle Maker

All Purpose Scissors

Postage Stamp Blade

Platinum Shimmer Cardstock

White Cardstock

Foam Squares

Steps:

Cut a piece of White Cardstock to be 11″ x 5 1/2″ and fold in half to form the card base.

Cut a piece of pink paper to be 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and add to the font of the card. Cut a piece of red paper to be 5″ x 5″ and add to the center of the card. Cut a piece of “love” patterned paper to be 5″ x 3″ and add to the bottom of the red paper. Cut a piece of Platinum Shimmer Cardstock to be 5 1/2″ x 3/4″ and add it across the card front.

Cut a piece of White Cardstock with the Postage Stamp Blade to be 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ and add to the card front with Foam Squares. Cut a piece of grey paper to be 2 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ and add it to the White Cardstock. Add flower with Foam Squares to the center of the grey paper.

Add Title Sticker and Icon Sticker to White Cardstock and trim to fit. Mat on red paper and trim to fit again. Add to card bottom with Foam Squares.

Enjoy!
