Handmade Crumple Flowers

Handmade cuteness perfect for all paper crafts, but just to name a few...
  • Card Making
  • Scrapbooking
  • Special Event Invitations/Decor
  • Gift Embellishments 

 I make these little goodies out of any and all paper I can get my hands on, including my very own paper designs and old wrapping paper. I love unique crafts- I'm not into cranking out a billion identical items. And, this was my first go- I actually embellished some further with fancy brads, buttons, and sequins. I also have plans to laminate some paper to work with! So stay tuned, there are {better} pics and {a proper} tutorial in the works!

All of these simple paper blooms are 2''by2'' with various metal brad closures in the center, but the prints/textures/colors can endlessly vary. I used my handy dandy 2'' scalloped punch to make the petals. (which made it suuuuuper easy peasy to crank out a lot quickly.) Each of my blooms have 3 layers, but seriously, go crazy with the amount of layers if you want!

Customize your unique blooms with a handsewn & vintage button closure instead of metal brads. Or find yourself cute button brads on clearance and snag 'em like this girl did!

This craft is particularly well-suited for customization! Any print/style/color paper and brad options that tickle your fancy. Seriously, the style possibilities are endless- use ombre-tinted watercolor paper to achieve a trendy sophisticated look...OR, you know, Superman comic books.

Oh yes- these little babies are quite addicting to play around with. Can't wait to show off my fancy ones soon. Hint: there is glitter involved.
