Easy Peasy Dimensional flowers!!!

This is so simple you can make dozens in less than an hour!!!  You only need limited supplies!  I first want to give credit where I saw this..I saw Erika H. on club ck blog.. She posted it in the tips and tricks section. I fell in love immediately and had to try. Since then I have played with many other techniques.. 

(You will notice that some of the flowers have wording on them..I used old dictionary pages)... I also used various punches..some that looked like a sunburst..If you have a shape cutting machine you can probably cut any circular shape you desire. I have the original sizzix with several big flower shapes I have yet to try.. So many possibilities to try!!! 
1st you need paper...it can me solid or pattern. If you use pattern that has a white back then you might want to color it with paint, ink or misting, watercolors, chalk..whatever you have to color with. 
Next: you need to cut the shape..I happen to have a round scallop punch about 1-1/2 in across. If you only have circles thats fine.. you can take scallop scissors or just tear circles. The torn look will be irregular and will lend a softer look to the flower.  Next mist them and dampen them slightly. Crumple them a little. Let dry. 
Now we are going to gather a stack of four, punch a hole in the center and use a old brad that wont be seen. Fasten them together then draw the petals upward curling, crunching and pleating. Do each layer...Then fluff it out.. I like to add glitter glue to the edges with paint brush.. Let dry... and enjoy using them on scrapbook pages, cards and more.. 
Thank You for Stopping by,
