First, you need to cut up a bunch of squares - the bigger they are, the easier it will be to make the flower. I have a square punch, or you can use a stencil or your cricut shapes.
This would be ok to use in a layout, but to me it felt like it needed some pizzazz... So, I started folding the edges of the squares/now triangles to get more volume and this is the result:
Then I cut up the pointy side through the middle and curled up to fit around the sides of the brad.
And this is the flower that I ended up with:
This is the LO I was working on when I came up with the pointy flower idea... BTW, a lot of the embellies here are part of giftbags my son got for his birthday! The little scrunchy ribbons were part of a giftbag. I used the tissue paper to create the other flowers in this LO. I will be posting more details soon, stay tuned!!
I'm thinking of making this flower in red, white, and blue for my 4th of July LO this year! I'll be posting details soon... TFL!
