Handmade Flowers

This week it's all about Handmade Flowers at ScrapTiffany. I love making flowers!! The first flowers I ever made were by following a tutorial by the amazingly talented Tracy. I caught the flower bug and haven't looked back. I have tried lots of different techniques and I have loved them all. The best part about making your own flowers is that it doesn't have to be complicated to look fantastic.


For these flowers I used the Peony die by Spellbinders, the swiss dots Cuttlebug embossing folder, Distress Ink in Barn Door and Weathered Wood, some basic grid paper (the kind my son uses for math), tiny brads, a little water, and Mod Podge Sparkle. They are very glossy and sparkly, the mod podge sparkle almost makes it look like you used UTE on them.
If you have never made your own flowers, you should really give it a try. I think they are better than anything that can be purchased in the stores and much cheaper too.
Be sure to head on over to ScrapTiffany and see what kinds of flowers the other designers made.
I hope you have a fabulous day!
