Paperback flowers




I came across this tutorial ( thanks for sharing Dawn!) on making flowers out of old paperback books a while ago. I've seen version of these flowers on several blogs. I decided to give them a try and just couldn't stop playing. Our super jumbo and extra jumbo flower punches work perfectly with this technique. I colored the various flowers with different palette inks. They all are held together with brads-some also have an added button in the middle. I've got one drying now that I added stickles to- turned out so pretty. I plan on using it on a card I have in the works and will share it with you soon.
