Project Details

  • Level:intermediate
  • Time:2 hours

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Punch 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.
  • 2
    Fold in each cut as shown, folding from the center up to the first scallop. Repeat for all cuts.
  • 3
    Once folded, turn over. The folded pieces add the dimension. Snip off the middle scallop from each petal with scissors.
  • 4
    Repeat 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.)
  • 6
    Cut 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.
