Designed 2 Delight Embellishment Tutorial

Designed 2 Delight is happy to present several tutorials to show how you make your own embellishments. My embellishment is to make your own paper flower. Our Design Team is participating in the digital challenge over at Crafter's Digital Art Center. Also, I wanted to mention that over at Designed 2 Delight there will be 5 images this month so be sure to participate each week so that Faith will email you the next image that we will be using.

For this I used my Cuttlebug machine and some Spellbinder cutting plates. I used the smallest ones of two different sets but you can use any machine and die cut that you want. I cut out several of each one using two sided paper.

Then I arranged them flipping every other one to show the other side of the paper.
I stacked them and then punched a hole in the middle.
Then add a brad of your choice.
Then starting with the top one I squeeze and fold in each layer -separately so that they fold in different.
Then done! Just add to your card or page.
