Recently I showed you a birthday card on which I had put some “Crumpled flowers”. I made them using the “wet” technique. Here is a closeup of one of the flowers (before I put it on the card).
They are great for using on greetings cards and for scrapbooking, because they can actually end up no deeper than the brad you use in the centre, so aren’t too bulky. I will admit that I have added stickles to the edges of the “petals” here for a little bit of extra glitz.
I particularly like the way the paper looks a little like fabric, or even leather when it has been scrunched whilst wet and then dried! You can use a brad to hold the layers together as I have here, or use glue in between and then glue a button in the flower centre, or even just a ball of scrunched paper, as I have dome sometimes.
Anyway, I have made a video tutorial of how to make these scrapbooking flowers… I hope you enjoy it!
