Blossom Paper Punch Flower Tutorial

I have had many requests for a tutorial on how to make the Blossom Paper Punch Flowers that were featured on my February 17th blog post and my February 15th blog post.   I think a few photos would be helpful in showing you how to create these beautiful flowers.

Here are all the pieces punched out.
Blossom Punch Flower:  Punch 3, each a different color.
...... Cut the 2 that will be shadows into 6 piece pieces.
...... Do not cut the 3rd Blossom Flower. I will refer to this as the main flower.
3/4" Paper Punch:  Punch 1, Very Vanilla (or color of your choice)
Modern Label Punch:  Punch 3 of the same color
Build a Blossom Paper Punch:  Punch 3 leaves of same color and style.

Put multi-purpose liquid glue no more than half up the pie shaped very vanilla piece.  Using liquid glue will allow movement for perfect placement of the petal shadow.   Do all 6 shadows.   I find it is easier if I work with the Main Flower facing me.

Repeat shadowing steps with the other pie shaped piece of paper.

The Modern Label Punch pieces (3) are glued and layered across the Main Flower Piece.  Very complimentary to the scalloped edges of the flower.

Now add in the 3/4" circle.   Using a paper piercing tool, pierce a center hole in the flower center circle.  Rotate the piercing tool a bit to enlarge the hole.  Now add in your brad.   If you would prefer a button could be added instead.  Choice is yours.  If you use a button, no paper piercing is needed.

Last step is to glue your petals to the back of the flower.   I placed them at every other petal.  You definitely could add more in if you like more greenery showing.

Flower is now ready to be place on your card or gift item.
