Eyelet Border Paper Flower

I have come home from Leadership Convention and the Phoenix Regional with sooooo many ideas!  This is one I had to share with you.  It was presented by Jan McClurg and I was amazed with what she could do with paper!  Thanks Jan!  Here's how you can make these beautiful eyelet border paper flowers (I was able to do it on the first try which means it's easy peasy!!!)!!!!  Give it a try!

Step 1:  Cut a strip of whisper white card stock 11" long and 3/4" wide.  Use your eyelet border punch to punch the length of the strip of whisper white card stock.

Step 2:  Run the eyelet border strip of whisper white card stock through your crimper 4 times to soften the paper and make it pliable.

Step 3:  Punch a 1 1/2" circle and cover the circle with mono adhesive (strong white glue).  You will now begin the create your flower by gluing one end of the strip of crimped card stock to the outside rim of the circle and working your way around the circle, folding the crimped card stock as you go.  You will keep working your way toward the center of the circle.  Don't worry if you run out of crimped card stock, we'll be covering up the blank hole in the middle!

Step 4:  Punch a 3/4" circle in a color of your choice (I used barely banana) and adhere it to the center of the flower using a dimensional.  Finish embellishing as you desire and then use the flower on a card, scrapbook page or 3-D item!  Have fun!!!!
