Here I have used tin cans, pasted paper around them, painted them with some cute colours and added a 3D paper flower and leaves around for decoration.
Next time I am going to line the insides, too. Can’t wait to make more.



Christmas Crafting in July

That’s right! I have started my Christmas crafting early. I usually forget to start my Christmas handmade pieces and before I know it, it’s late November and I’ve missed my chance. This year I have started really early to get some Christmas products in my Etsy shop.

Making 3D Paper Flowers

Last night I made all of these Paper Flowers… I must admit they are addictive to make and I will be using this technique on many creations in the future!

To make these 3D paper flowers I cut various sized circles out of different cards and papers and scrunch them up so they look ruffled. The paper I have used musical note paper, textured paper, colourful card and pages from Shakespeare’s Macbeth, but you could use any paper/card you wish!

After scrunching them up, I place all the ruffled circles together, and make a hole in the middle either with a crafting knife or a pair of scissors. I then use split pins (which you can buy at any stationary shop) to push through the middle and hold them together!

Simple but effective way of making beautiful flowers for your creations. I will be using these on many things such as canvas paintings, cards and making them into magnets!
