How To Make A Paper Carnation

Oh this is so super easy!  Wait til you see this!



Here is the card I created using some of these flowers.  I made this card for The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blog challenge.  The challenge this month is to use hand made flowers with butterflies.

I used an image from The Stamping Boutique.  The butterfly, circles, and flourish were all cut using dies.  The sentiment is from Skipping Stones Designs.


Thanks for looking!
