Make yourself some Unique Scrapbook Flowers out of lots of different materials

Making our own embellishments is sometimes the best way to obtain the very thing you want for a special page in your album. At a scrappy day at my house, I got together with a few friends and a Big Shot machine, some felt, some cardstock, some crepe paper, a needle and embroidery cotton and some buttons to make these flowers. They were all inspired by Chelle Bean Designs, yet all of them turned out to be quite different from one another depending on who made them.

The top five flowers were made with crepe paper and buttons with some florist's wire. We folded layers of crepe paper into accordion pleats. Then we threaded buttons onto wire and fixed our crepe paper in the middle. Finally we teased out the different layers of crepe to make a flower.

The round flowers that are more or less in the middle of the picture were made by punching out circles from designer series paper and cardstock. We then distressed the edges of the paper and stitched various sized circles together with buttons and embroidery thread.

The last blossoms pictured were made with die cut Big Shot flower and circle shapes. This time we used felt to make our shapes, then stitched around the circles with embroidery cotton before layering them together with a flower shape and a button.

We could have used many other materials to make our blooms. We thought of using cork, thin metals and foils, tissue paper, coffee filters, thin leather, grungeboard, corrugated cardboard, acrylic, satins...the list was really as endless as our imaginations.

It was a lot of fun to make so many different types of flowers out of so many different materials. The company was good, too! ☺

That's another thing I love about papercrafting. I love the people you meet with similar interest who become your friends.

I hope you get to spend time with crafty friends, trying out new ideas over a cuppa and a chat. It's a great way to spend a morning (or a whole day if you can).

And if you have some more ideas for how to make your own scrapbook flowers, I hope you will share them here. Next time we have a scrappy day, we would love to have some new ideas to try out!

Embossing or Stamping paper flowers Not rated yet
I love embossing paper flowers using my embossing folders. They turn out awesome and also you can use a little extra ink gently over the embossed parts …
