Thursday's Tutorial from Kim

Welcome to Papercraft Star's Thursday Tutorial.  If you want to enter our current challenge, please click here. 

I (Beth) would like to extend a special thank you to our talented Design Team member Kim for putting together this sweet flower tutorial for you on short notice...yep, I was late getting out the tutuorial schedule for 2011 and Kim covered for me...yeah Kim!... in fact, I want to extend a special thank you to ALL of our Designers, Jan, Tracy, Regan, Liz, Angi, Kim, Jennifer and C... not to mention my sweet Kristina and co-founder of PCS, who all so willingly take on last minute projects, and just generally help to make my part of running PCS easier and Papercraft Star look so darn good (oh, and who all put up with me too)! :-) Thank you so much, I am so honored to be a part of such a great organization and team! 

Okay... now enough babble, here's that fabulous tutorial from Kim... visit Kim's blog, Paper Loves Glue to see more of her fantastic work!

  • Your favorite paper (double-sided is best)
  • Glue
  • Scalloped circle punch
Step 1. Punch out nine circles using a scalloped shaped circle punch. 

Step 2. Set aside one of the scalloped circles. Fold each of the remaining eight circles in half, three times each. Each piece will look like a small triangle wedge. 

Step 3. Apply a generous amount of glue to the scalloped circle that you had set aside in step 2.

Step 4. Adhere each folded piece to the glue, starting in the center and working your way around the edge. It should come together and look similar to a sliced piece of pie. Let it dry.

Step 5. Once the glue has dried, you can add buttons, brads, small flowers, or any other embellishments you want. Just have fun and get creative!

Beth, thank you for you sweet comment about my tutorial. And to everyone, yes, these are so simple to make and make a great addition to almost any project!

I have used them on cards, layouts and even little gift boxes. It would be fun to see some of you use them to creat a project and post them here on Papercraft Star!
