I made these cute flower favors for my March Card Club!
|Start with a 6"x 6" double sided piece of designer paper and score |
at 2" and 4". Turn 1/4 turn and score again at 2" and 4".
|Score the outside corner squares diagonally.|
|Fold inward on all score lines except on the diagonal lines fold |
backwards. It will look something like this.
|Folding on the diagonal corners, punch a hole through both |
layers of each corner.
|.I will look like this.|
|Thread bakers twine through holes ...|
|pulling tight, tie a knot. This will ensure your flower pick |
will be held up write.
|I used a die for my flowers, a flower punch would also work. |
Use a bone folder and your thumb to curl the petals of the flowers.
|Using dimensional adhesive dots attach flowers back to back |
onto skewers off setting the petals.
|Continue layering with dimensionals - the flower centers and |
buttons on both sides. Tie a bow with baker's twine and attach
to button with a glue dot - this will look like you threaded the
button without all the work.
|Tie green ribbon on the skewer for leaves, place the skewer |
in your paper basket and fill with candy. Wouldn't these
be great favors for a girls birthday party?
The skewers can also be
used as cupcake flags or a cake toppers.
|They also make a great centerpiece.|
