Scrapbook How-to: Make a Synthetic Flower
These bright, cheerful peonies are easier to make than you might think and are the perfect way to give your page a textile touch. Cluster together with sweet scallops and other fabric like lace trim to draw the eye toward a focal point on your layout or balance out a heavy title on the opposite page. Stacy Cohen created a cluster of flowers on her You Had Me at Meow layout for 101+ Creative Ways to Use Your Scrapbook Supplies.
Create the look:
Step 1: Hand cut or punch petal shapes using synthetic fabric. Note: For a fuller flower add more layers.
Step 2: Briefly hold petals near flame to singe and curl edges. Note: Always use extreme caution when working with fire; some fabrics are more flammable than others.
Step 3: Layer petals and embellish with a button.
