*~*Flowers, Flowers Everywhere~*~ Blog Hop

Thanks for joining us on the Flowers, Flowers Everywhere Blog Hop! 

You should have arrived from Monica's blog.  The hop begins on Kathryn's blog if you'd like to start at the top.  



We have 22 fabulous designers all ready to showcase some of their favorite FLOWER creations with you today!  This is a two-day hop. so most of us will have a second project posted tomorrow, so be sure to stop by again!

Today I'm featuring a Birthday card with a large folded flower.  A few months ago I learned how to make this super easy flower through Close to My Heart.
First I punched 8 circles (1 1/4") from my patterned paper, Mayberry.  I made sure that the reverse side of my paper was all the same shade (of honey).
Next I folded up one side, about 1/3.  Then I folded the second side up, forming a point at the bottom, like a cone shape.

I did this for all 8 "flower petals".  I took a 9th punched circle and put lots of adhesive on it.  I then added my "petals" on until it formed a full circle, forming my flower.  I added two buttons to the center to complete it.

Finally, I stamped my stem (Dreams come true) and my sentiment (Card Chatter- Happy Birthday).  I could have even put Happy Mother's Day on this card (but I already made those cards).

Supplies
CTMH- Mayberry Level 2 papers
CTMH- Card Chatter- Happy Birthday
CTMH- Dreams come True
CTMH- 1 1/4" Circle Punch
