Tissue Paper Flowers - Tutorial

Hi everyone! 

Spring is just around the corner and the flowers are up here on the lovely West Coast of Canada! To get readyfor the season of flowers, today I have a little tutorial on making tissue paper flowers, using some wonderful brads from Upsy Daisy!  Let's get started:

Begin with some plain white tissue paper.  You will layer 5 or six pieces together and cut a small ( about 1.5 inches) circle out of the layered paper:
Next, you will crumple up the layers, making sure each one is very crumply!  Add a brad through the middle ( I used Upsy Daisy #BRD311- Blossom):


Spray the tissue flower with your choice of spray ink or mist - allow some to settle on the brad.  Heat set with heating tool.  Fluff again when dry, add a pearl to the centre of the brad if desired, and you are done!
These are great for adding interest and texture to any layout or card and are quick and easy to make in any size.  Here I have used them in a layout featuring the lovely Blossom line:
(#BLO011-Awakening; #BLO013-Orchard; #BLO016-Spring is in the Air)

I hope you enjoy making some tissue paper flowers for your layouts and cards!

Happy Day, everyone!

Super idea, the flowers add just the right touch of 'softness' to that layout.

And isn't your daughter growing up into a lovely girl.

Keep up the great work - although I have no idea when you sleep.!!!
