Here's my second take on today's SCS sketch challenge. I've wanted to make these tissue flowers for some time and boy were they easy!! I definitely will throw more together to top gift boxes!!
To make the flowers, I used two sizes of flower punches (Whale of a Punch & Medium by EK Success) and tissue paper. I folded the tissue paper a couple of times and then punched out some flowers (that way I got a bunch cut with one punch). After that I crumpled the flowers a bit and distressed them with ink (Rose Red). I used a little glue from my Zig 2-way glue pen and attached 4 large flowers atop each other, making sure to stagger the petals with each overlapping flower. Then, I added 2 medium flowers (staggered again). Finally, I glued on the button & ribbon and scrunched the petals a bit. You could stitch the buttons on, but I was being lazy :)
