New 52: Week 4: Paper Swirl Flowers

For this week's New52 I decided to learn to make those adorable paper swirled flowers that up until now I've only used on digital layouts! For the longest time I have been looking at these beautiful handmade flowers on paper layouts and projects and thinking..."they look simple enough!" However I have yet to try making them. So this week I decided to finally give it a try!

My first few attempts on my own were fairly unsuccessful....but before giving up I decided to turn to YouTube for some guided instruction and found the following video to be very helpful!


If you have been wanting to learn to make these adorable flowers to add to all of your papercrafting projects I say go for it! After a little bit of practice they will be a piece of cake and you'll be adorning all of your pages with these little beauties!

That's awesome! I looked up how to make them once, too, but after I saw it involved cutting and gluing I was like "No way .." I always get myself into trouble when glue and scissors are involved. LOL

Thanks for sharing your NEW52, I always wanted to learn how to do this. I thought that was a great video. I can't wait to try this out, who knows it may show up on my blog next week.

help!!! can't figure out where to pause the music!

Pretty! I've done them a few times and they are surprisingly easy to make once you get the hang of it.

Amy Kingsford said...

Sorry Debbie! To pause the music, press the pause key on the music player at the bottom of the blog. I've now clarified for future readers...Thanks!

Very cute! I stick with digital. I'm too messy for all that fabric and glue and stuff. :)

These are just darling! It's been years since I did "real" paper crafting ... this may just inspire me to get my stash back out from the storage boxes!
