Circle Flower


I'm not sure if you all had seen this kind of flowers but recently, I've had a chance to play and try to create my own. I've managed to take some step pictures to share with you all.

Here are the steps.
1) First, you need to cut out circles of various different sizes. Use a decorative scissors for a more interesting edge. You could also use different sizes of circle punchers for this. Then ink it's edges with distress ink for some depth.
2) Then, create a snip into the circle. Start rolling and twirling it from the snip. Create a tighter twirl in the beginning. When you've finished with the whole circle, simply just down with a fast drying glue. To create a bigger flower, take another bigger circle from the first circle piece and create a snip on it too. Continue the twirl of the first circle piece with this second circle piece. The more circles you add, the bigger the flower.

Hope you all like this simple flower tutorial and try creating a circle flower. Have fun! Do check back tomorrow for Clear Scraps New Release blog hop!

Thank you for the tutorial! I am trying this technique and failing badly. Could you show a picture of your "snipped" circle before you roll it up? I want to see how far in your are snipping the circle.

I just love this little tutorial. I made these for a dress years ago, but I'd completely forgotten about it until I read your blog today. Aren't you clever!

Hi Kathy,
Take a look at the top far right circle in the picture in step 1. I've snip that circle. Simply just snip it right to the middle of the circle.
