Paper Flowers!

Paper flowers are popping up everywhere, even at Pineapple Cove!! Kahala Mall had a fashion show last weekend, and we were commissioned to come up with something for the show. Since the fashion show was showcasing a lot of the clothing from the boutiques downstairs, I thought it would be nice to make some paper flowers to help accessorize the outfits walking down the runway. So I came up with these paper flower pins for the girls to accessorize with.

This is a set of chrysanthemum flowers I cut with my Craft Robo. I cut 5 different layers, then glazed them with Ultra Thick Emobssing Enamel (thanks Annie for turning me onto this amazing product!) I simply used the wooden end of a small paint brush to curl the edges. The pink one is my favorite!

Next is a pair of roses. I cut strips of some of my scrap DP, crinckled up the paper by scrunching it up in my hand. Then wrapping it around in a circle. I punched a little circle as the backing to adhere the rosebuds on with hot glue.

Lastly, these may look a little familiar to you. Remember my dress form that I covered with flowers? I simply took 3 flowers to make this bunch and added a Kaisercraft rhinestone in the middle.

All three projects were super easy and I loved the fact that I was able to use up my scraps!! I'll have more paper flower projects to share in the near future.

Happy Crafting!!
