I have had several requests to show how I made the little flowers on my Soakin' Up The Sun layout and my Kitten Spa layout. They are so fast and simple, so you can make coordinating flowers for any patterned paper.
I am showing an example using the "Umbrellas" paper from the Snorkel Collection by Cosmo Cricket because the circles are already on the paper and it was a great way to get all of those flowers cut for that layout.
1. Cut a circle using scalloped edge scissors. (Sidenote: if you have a scalloped circle punch or a scalloped circle in one of your die cut machines, that will work just great! I didn't want to use my cricut because I wanted each of these "umbrellas")
2. Cut inward from each scallop toward the center using straight edge scissors. Bend the tips of the petals upward. Could it be easier? Have fun!
**I inked the edges of these with black ink for definition and for the Kitten Spa page, I sanded the edges very carefully.
