I know lots of people are creating their own flowers and some are just as nice and even prettier than the store bought versions. This helps me some as I have been able to recreate some very nice flowers and will be doing a class on them soon. You can see those ones here. I, however, like to create my own flowers. Things I can says "yes" that is my creation. So, today the flower you see here is one of my creations. It is fairly simple to make. My son even loves them and thinks they are real flowers, he tries to smell them and says they are pretty. I used some retired Designer Paper to make them. The one above uses Bella Rose paper from SU.
I can't remember of the top of my head the name of this Designer Paper, but it is also from SU. This is the smaller version of the flower.
Here you can compare the size of each relative to each other. The smaller one is about 2" across and the larger about 4".
I would love to know what you think. If you like them let me know and I will do a tutorial for them.
