The Winter Blues


Well I have to admit that I am now officially sick of winter.  We, here in Michigan, have gotten hit quite seriously with snow this year. It’s like the old days!   I know many other states are also suffering so I definitely sympathize.  To cheer all of us up, I decided to make a few paper flowers.  Flowers are my favorite thing to make out of paper.

To make this style flower I popped onto my Silhouette and designed two sizes of petal layers.  Each flower has 1 large bottom petal layer, 1 medium petal layer (1/2″ smaller than the bottom size) and then 5 mini centers layered into a frilly center.  I also punched out a sepal from green card stock to complete the look.  I really like to see how the flower starts to look real once the layers are assembled.  Now I just wished they smelled as pretty as they look!

Sets of these flowers are available on my Etsy Shop here.

These are the pink flowers I made.  I used a 65 lb. white card stock and then my dye ink.  The centers are patterned paper.
