Flower Clip #1

    I found a tutorial on how to make this flower from Patty Bennett.  Go HERE to download her tutorial.


     I will give you a quick tutorial on how I made this one in particular.

1.  Using two different colors of Designer Series Paper and the XL Fancy Flower Punch (found in the Occasions Mini catalog), punch out 3 in one color and 2 in the other color, for 5 total.
2.  Take each flower and place them in your palm.  Place your index finger in the center, while you close your hand around the flower, shaping it to look like an actual flower.
3.  Using the paper piercing mat from the mat pack and the paper piercing tool, pierce a whole in the middle of all 5 flowers.
4.  Using a 5/8" brad, place a brad through all 5 flowers, opening the prongs on the back.
5.  Crumble each layer around the brad, really tights.
6.  Open each layer as much as you would like them open.

     For the clothes pin clip:

1.  Cut a strip of DSP (matching the paper from the flower), the length and width of your clip.
2.  Using Tombo Glue, glue the strip of paper to one side of the clip.
OPTIONAL: Ink the edge of the paper on the clip.
3.  Using a glue dot on the back of the flower, attach the flower to the clip.


CARD STOCK:  Designer Series Paper (Welcome Neighbor “free” SAB pack used)

INK:  Regal Rose

TOOLS:  XL Fancy Flower Punch, Mat Pack, Paper Piercing Tool, 5/8" brad-Whisper White, Tombo Glue, clothes pin (not SU!)

     These flowers can be used for so many uses.  They can be made in any color you choose, with any paper of your choice.  They are beautiful and very easy to make.

Happy Wednesday!
