Faces of Love ~ Crinkled Posy Tutorial

I am so excited

that I finally have time to focus on finishing up this custom 20-page album I've been working on and wanted to share some progress pics. You might remember this little BEAUTY from some earlier layouts, my friend's darling little Grace! I just have to add a few finishing touches like some more bUtTeRfLiEs and the JoUrNaLiNg.

I love the way the posies turned out, they are so easy to make! I use circle and scallop punches, or you can use your Cricut, in varying sizes. I spritz them with water (not too much or the paper will tear); crumple them up and then uncrumple them to dry. Once they are dry, you can ink the edges and the creases if you like. Stack them up and secure with a brad or stitch a button to hold them together. Add stems or leave them as they are!

I love your posies! And you make it sound way too simple... I don't have a green thumb when it comes to paper flowers :)

I'm excited by my metal smithing classes and before the end of the month will be buying my own torch to use at home.
