Don't you love getting new craft tools?! I spent most of my birthday money this year at the craft stores on some fun stuff........like a 3 1/2 inch scallop flower paper punch. It's awesome and it's inspiring all kinds of crafty projects for spring!
Large flower or scallop paper punch
1. Fold one piece of tissue paper in half, then in half again two more times so that you end up with 8 thicknesses of paper.
2. Along the folded edge, slide the paper into your punch all the way back and press down firmly to cut out some flower shapes.
3. With all 8 tissue flower shapes in a neat pile, staple them together a couple of times in the center.
4. Scrunch each layer of tissue from the center out to create a ruffled flower.
I just happened to have some poppies in a vase that these tissue paper flowers look perfect with. I'm loving these colors together! Happy Spring!
