Scrunched Scalloped Circle Flower

I had several questions about how I made my scrunched scalloped circle flowers in my last post.  I thought I would give you a little step by step on how to make this cute and VERY EASY 3D flowers.

You will need:
Enough cardstock or dsp to punch out 6 scallop circles
1 brad
Paper piercer and mat
Scallop Circle Punch

***Shocking image***
Look away if you can't stand the sight of scrunched cardstock.  :) 

Scrunch up all 6 scallop circles like you would a gum wrapper --being careful not to rip them.

Carefully flatten out your circles.  See all the crinkles and wrinkles--that's perfect!

Stack up all 6 circles and poke a hole down through the center of them w/ your paper piercer.  Bore out the hole a little to make it a little bigger.

Using a brad attach the 6 circles together.

One layer at a time, scrunch up the circles again.  I like to REALLY scrunch the center circle so it is tight and you can't see the brad.

Continue Scrunching....

Then I take the flower in my hand and I scrunch it some more...

Here's what it look like after all the that....

Shape your flower by pulling down some of the petals a bit.  No worries--it you don't like the shape or something isn't just so--scrunch it again.  :)

  4. Hi Wendy!
    Just wanted to say this is exactly how I make my flowers, with one added step. Before I scrunch the first time I mist with water, then scrunch and unwrap. While they are still damp I complete all the rest of the steps. When the finished flower is completely dry, it will be very firm (because of misting)and keep a nice shape. Try it and see what you think. P.S. - I love your picture tutorial, very helpful for first-timers.

  5. Yeah! I think I can finally make one of these flowers I've seen. Thanks for helping a "flower-challenged" stamper.
