Tutorial: Folded Flower by Suzanne! :)

Happy Saturday morning! Suzanne here with a flower tutorial :) You'll need 5 (and a few extras just in case) 1 1/2" circles. I used a lightweight double-sided patterned paper from Echo Park's Victoria collection.

Visualize your circle scored in thirds. Fold two "thirds" towards the center creating a petal looking shape. This is why you'll want to use a double sided paper.

Use your bone folder to give a nice crease as you go. This will help your flower lay flat. Start laying your pieces together, aligning your folded edges. Adjust as necessary.

Use one of your extra circles as a base for adhering the flower together. 

Embellish the center of your flower with a brad, button, charm, etc. I used a pearl brad.

I layered my flower embellishment on this die cut shape from My Favorite Things called "Decorative Doily".

Use your flower to embellish a card, layout, or other project :)

I adhered mine to a white card base (embossed with the Script cuttlebug folder). Sentiment embossed in white by Paper Smooches "Sentiment Sampler".

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial! I would love to see your project if you try one of these flowers. Leave a link in the comments so I can check it out :)
