Here are Keely’s amazingly simple instructions for making that beautiful paper flower:

Paper Carnation Tutorial
by Keely Yowler

These flowers are one of my favorite paper projects.  They make great additions to layouts and gift bags.

Supplies:

8 ½ x 11” sheet of patterned paper
Ink
Brad
Fine-tipped scissors

Instructions:

1     Using stencils, a diecut machine, or drawn freehand, cut eight 2 ½” circles and three 2” circles.  This size works good for me.  You can use any sizes you choose providing that you have eight large circles and three smaller circles.
2    Apply ink around edges of circles.
3    Layer small circles on top of large circles.
4    Punch small hole in center of circles and insert brad.
5    Make cuts approximately ¼ “ apart around entire stack of circles.
6    Separate layers and fluff apart.
7    You did it!
