As a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator each month I receive a mini magazine called Impressions and it has lots of hints and tips about building our businesses and some great ideas for demonstrations. This month one of the ideas was to use the Tag punch to create flowers, a very simple technique but very effective.
To make the flowers you fold a tag in half vertically, taking the right side over on top of the left side ( which ever pattern of paper is inside will be the one shown) and then keeping the fold on the right hand side you fold the top half back making a diagonal crease going from the bottom left corner to the centre fold. Layer the petals onto a 1 3/8″ circle overlapping them slightly, like teabag folding to make your flower.
As always actually folding the paper is much easier than reading the instructions………..
My card is pretty much the same as the one shown in the magazine, I have used Tea Party designer paper from the mini catalogue, the patterns showing are 2 sides of the same paper. Almost Amethyst is the main card blank and So Saffron as the sentiment layer scalloped with the edge punch they also make up the centre of the flower where I have punched out using the Boho Blossoms punch. All finished off with a Rhinestone brad and some wonderful Button Latte from the Mini.
