How to make Paper Flower Embellishments with Punches

This post contains Amazon affiliate links...

Hello everyone.  This weekend I have been enjoying playing with my new toys.  I just bought myself a set of daisy flower punches and they are so much fun to use.  I bought the Vaessen Creative Flower Set from Amazon but there are many other flower punches out there.  The set comprises of 3 different size daisy style punches which can be layered with all different colours and patterns of paper to make beautiful unique paper flowers.

Paper Flowers




Materials

Flower punches in different sizes
Glue
Designer, coloured paper or light cardstock
Mini gems, puffy paint, (you could also use tiny punched circles for the centres).



To use them you simply choose the paper you would like to use and punch out lots of flowers in the different sizes.  You can then layer them if you wish, sticking them together with a little glue.  I added sticky gems or 3D Pearl Paint to make the centres of the flowers.  For a more 3D effect you can curl up the petals with the edge of some scissors or use dimensional foam stickers to attach them to your projects.


If you have children they will love making these (they may need a little help with the punching...)


This is such a great way to use up your paper scraps.


The flowers can be used to embellish many things. Use them for cards, gift wrapping, decorating notebooks the possibilities are endless...



If you would like to have a go at making these I will leave some links at the end for the materials you will need.  I will also link some Youtube videos for more paper flower ideas...

Have a great day!
