On the 1st Day of Christmas....

♪♫ how does that song go again???  I'm sure it given enough brain power and eggnog, I could belt out every verse, but since we are about the business of scrappin' here (and I've been requested more than once by my children to never sing...never), I've decided to replace the lords a'leaping with lots o' flowers!!!  And we aren't going to wait until Christmas to kick start the fun!!!

Starting today, through the 12th, I am going to do a flower tutorial every single day.  Not all of the ideas are uniquely my own.  Some are flowers I've found on layouts that I just had to figure out how to recreate, some are tutorials that have been floating around blogdom.  Either way, if you check back here daily....or better yet click that little follow button to the will find a fun new flower you can make to pretty up your paper crafting.

If you have any questions on this tutorial or any future ones I post, please ask me a question in the comments and I will come back and add the answer.  Or you can email me (see the 'about me' page above) and I'll respond directly.  Up first is a fantastic flower if you are looking for something with lots of dimension yet very little added height.  PERFECT for scrapbook pages.  The video shares lots of detail, but I will tell you this will work with ANY 5-6 petal flower that you can get 3 various sizes of blooms cut.  Diecuts, punches, machine cut, etc.  I chose to use the flower on the George and Basic shapes Cricut cart, because it's a resource available to lots of my readers.  You will need 2 of each size (3 sizes means six blooms total), but all of that is detailed after just hit the play button below:
