I have a simple yet very effective technique for making your own Tissue Paper flowers.... I've used Collections Tissue Paper to create a heap for this layout.
Made in just 3 easy steps:
Step 1 - Cut off a strip of the tissue paper, for the larger flowers I've cut off 1 inch; the smaller ones are 1/2 inch or less.
Step 2 - Gather the strip up - scrunching as you go along one side. Naturally it will want to form a circle.
Step 3 - Wrap the strip around onto itself and add a centre. For some I've used new Prima and others I've used My Minds Eye brads
Below is a picture of the 3 steps...
I've also used on this layout....
Satin Seam Binding
Butterfly Ribbon - black
Black Elastic frill ribbon
Kaiser Clear Stamp
AND once you have the knack, you can take this a step further by adding paint or glimmer mist, kindy glitz etc.... oh soo many options!!
