3D Paper Flowers
Created by OMC Designer Lindsey

Supplies Used:
My Mind's Eye : India Paper
Tim Holtz : Distress Ink Pad - Walnut Stain
Inkssentials : Ink Blending Tool
Tim Holtz : Tiny Attacher
Glue Dots : Pop Up Glue Dots Roll
Martha Stewart : Fringe Scissors

Instructions:
1. Cut out several 3 ½” circles. The size of flower will determine how many circles you will need to cut. The more circles your cut, the bigger your flower will be. Fold the sides of the flower in and staple at the point.
2. Repeat step 1 for every layer of circles, only drop the size down ½” with every layer (i.e. the second layer would be 3" circles, the third layer 2 ½” circles, etc.).
3. Cut a circle 5” and use the Glue Dots to adhere the stapled circles in place. Securing the circles to the 5” circle will hold together the shape of the flower.

3. To create the flower center, cut a strip of coordinating paper about 8" long. Using the Martha Stewart Fringe Scissors, cut across the top of the strip, only cutting about 2/3 of the way through. Wrap the strip into a circle and use a Glue Dot to hold the strip in place. Bend the cut strips outward. Attach the flower center to the center of the flower with more Glue dots.

4. Once the flower is completed, use the distress ink and the Ink Blending Tool to ink the edges of the flower.


Look how these fabulous dimensional flowers add color and character to this mirror!



Happy crafting!
