Tutorial for Making Paper Flowers For Cardmakers

Just a quick tutorial on making some paper flowers. I found an easy way to make some if you have any of those craft scissors with the scalloped edges.

Cut a piece of paper in a 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 inch square.   Use the scissors to cut out a spiral.

Use a pair of narrow tweezers to roll the spiral starting at the outer edge. Slip the tweezers out of your flower while holding it securely.

 Keeping the flower between your fingers, allow it to uncurl up a bit into a pretty flower shape.

Twist he last bit under (and up the side if necessary) the flower.  Add glue to the bottom piece and wait for it to dry while still holding the flower.

Use the tweezers to curl the edges.
Finally, admire your lovely flowers. Add some shimmer or bling. I used some Silks paint on the edges of the black flower.
