FUN PHRASE FRIDAY - 3-dimensional Flower Card with instructions

Welcome to another week of FUN PHRASE FRIDAY!  Today I chose to feature a card using the "Best Yet" stamp set from Stampin' Up! along with a do it yourself 3-dimensional rose.  Want to learn more about this cool on =)

Instructions for 3-dimensional Flower
STEP 1:  Grab any large flower punch or even scallop circle punch and double sided pattern paper.

STEP 2:  Punch 8 flowers from the same punch

STEP 3:  Crumple all 8 punched out flowers into tiny pieces

STEP 4:  Unwrap all 8 punched out flowers

STEP 5:  Stack your flowers on top of each other, alternating the front and back sides of the paper.  Pierce a hole in the center of all your flowers with a paper piercing tool.

STEP 6:  Insert a brad in the hole and fold the brad prongs on the backside of your flower stack - although this is a thick stack, there is enough room to secure it.

STEP 7:  Begin folding each flower towards the center of the brad as tight as you can

STEP 8:  Keep folding all those petals in towards the center.  You're almost done, it's looking amazing isn't it!
STEP 9:  Once you've folded all the petals into the center, start unfolding some petals starting from the bottom of your stack of will really look nice.  Try different types of patterened papers - I think the patterened papers tend to look the best and give a very dramatic appeal!
