- Time:2 hours
1Punch a scalloped square and mark the center (just eyeball it) with a pencil. Cut from the center of each side toward the center, stopping shy of the center mark.
2Fold in each cut as shown, folding from the center up to the first scallop. Repeat for all cuts.
3Once folded, turn over. The folded pieces add the dimension. Snip off the middle scallop from each petal with scissors.
4Repeat steps 1 through 3 to create second flower. Fan and adhere at centers. Top with brad or button. Use the Seal of Approval squeeze punch in a spiral cut and roll up to adhere to create a spiral center.
5(Optional: if you like, once you get this technique down, you can try a fun variation using decorative corner punches and colors of cardstock listed under supplies. Simply cut out a 2 inch square of cardstock and deco-punch all corners. Fold the same way as above, but first snip off the corners from each cut. This avoids these corners showing through your decorative punched design. Repeat with a second flower and layer for dimension.)
6Cut out a base of chipboard by tracing and cutting circles onto chipboard using the super sized circles template and wrapped with jute. Hot glue the flowers to the wreath to secure.
