Flower from paper-Step by Step.

I received an email today asking how I made the flower in my Basic Grey layout.
So I thought I will do a step by step guide.
Step 1.


I have taken a strip of paper. The length and width of the paper is up to you.
Wider the paper, the bigger the flower.
The longer the paper, the denser the flower.

Step 2.

Make a concertina fold with the strip of paper as shown above.

This is how it looks when you finish folding.

Step 3.


Join the ends of the folded paper using double sided tape.

Step 4.

Use a double sided adhesive foam dot and hold the centre in position.

Step 5.

Decorate the centre using a smaller flower or a button. The edges can be inked or sprayed with Glimmer Mist to give shimmer as an added interest.

So now, there is always a matching flower for your layout.

Thanks for stopping by

Pixie…

Whats a Pixie, mom?
Was the question asked by my DD recently. It does not stop there.
Momm…, Whats the difference between Pixie and Fairy?
So we searched on google and found out that Pixies are smaller than faires,
live in garden and have their own territory.
They are delicate and more gentle than fairies. These characteristics were similar to my DD. She loves to spend more time in the garden, she is delicate in structure and gentle in nature.
With this in mind, I decided to make a layout.
Tanyah from Scrapncraft with T had her challenge in Debs which has butterflies, heart felt journaling, wings, which will be perfect for the Pixie idea in my mind.

Here is Tanyah’s challenge:

This Challenge must include
a bracket
Butterflies
Wings
Bling
shapped paper
Heart Felt journalling with at least 5 words highlighted in some way.
Chipboard decorated shape

Thus, this layout was created. I love this layout for another reason too. I love the color combo. Green, Purple and Brown.
I think it goes very well. I like how the layout turned out.
Here are some closeups.
