Paper Bag Flowers!

Hello Welcome to
Tutorial Time Challenge from
Mark's Finest Papers a Heinrich Co

 Here is my tutorial for Paper Bag Flowers!

Supplies:  scissors, flower punch, paper bags,
Elmer's glue (or any school glue) buttons, or pearls, walnut ink.
I added powder chalk with water in spray bottle for some extra shine.
You can use any shimmer spritz sprays for added shine.

I first cut my bags so they are easy to punch

I find that if my punch starts to stick a few punches of tin foil sharpens the punch.

Punched flowers

Now time to crinkle the flowers.  I have found the longer they stay crinkled the better. 

Next I spray them with Walnut Ink and then with
the chalk spray.  The chalk spray gives a great shine.  Again, you can use any shimmer mists.

Next I take 6 petals and glue a dot in the middle of each and stack.
See how glue is here, this is done for each layer.

Now for making the flower have more texture.  I squeeze down in the middle and twist to layer the petals. 
Here you can see I have added buttons in the center .
A ton of colors can be made using walnut inks and shimmers.

Now for the card I finished with one of these fun flowers!
Hope you enjoyed this quick and fun project!
Can't wait to see your flowers!
