Basic Training
 Scrap Flowers 101 

Hello All ! Lanette here I thought I would share a quick tip that will help you save a few bucks!

How you might ask? By making your own flowers from your layout scraps! Yes it can be done here is a layout that I created with some homemade scrap flowers.

So as you can see I used 12 flowers that could caused you over $10 easy! So do I have you attention now? Okay then lets get started.

For the red flowers I used a spellbinders die and
a punch to make the three layers I needed.

Need I creased each petal of the spellbinders flowers.

Layered them,
 I used glossy accents

Next I added a bit of pop to the punched
 flower with my embossing tool. Then add it to the stack.

I used three punched flowers
to make the yellow flowers

With the first flower
I folded all of the petals up.

Layered it on the second and attached
with glossy accents and repeat.

 After I added a bit of bling these are the flowers that
I ended up with, made from my scraps
with tools that have been hanging around forever!

I hope you have fun saving some bucks and making your won flowers from scraps!
