Artist postcards: how to make torn paper flowers

Making cards

We continue Flower Week with another super easy flower. Paper flowers make sweet embellishments for cards, scrapbook pages, and other paper crafting projects. This is probably the easiest flower you can imagine. Oh, and if you want to see more of my work with the cute October Afternoon paper above, check out the projects I’ve posted on the Lasting Memories blog. There are tons of great ideas there!

Simple Torn Flower Tutorial

What you’ll need:
*Paper or card stock
*Brad or button (optional)
*Hole punch (optional)
*Ink for distressing (optional)

1. Start by ripping four circles out of your paper. The should get progressively bigger. I actually drew loose circles on my card stock so I could make sure they were not all the same size.

2. The fun part: crumple them up into little balls!

3. Flatten them out again and arrange on top of each other from biggest to smallest. If you want the distressed look (like my red flower above), ink the edges with an ink pad first.

4. If you want to use a brad for the center, punch a hole with a hold punch and put the brad in. You could also sew a button on or create another center.

5. Attach to your card, page, or project! This really must be the easiest project we’ve EVER posted.
