Scrapbook How-To: Make Torn Flowers
Put torn edges to work by creating cute, inexpensive accents for your layouts like Kim Watson did on her page in Scrapbooking Tips & Tricks: Texture, making pretty flowers from strips torn from patterned paper.
Create the look:
Step 1: Tear 1 1/2″ and 1″ wide strips of patterned paper against a metal ruler or metal die.
Step 2: Loosely pleat each strip, adhering the ends together to form a circle.
Step 3: Adhere both pleated circles to cardstock circle with hot glue. Press button into center. Let dry.
- Try this technique to use up your long patterned paper strips. Save your torn paper flowers in a cute container and use them on layouts and cards or to dress up wrapped gifts.
- Create a fair-ribbon accent using this technique. Add two cardstock tails to the bottom of the accent and replace the center brad with a cardstock circle. Add words or journaling to finish the badge.
