The Scrapper's Toolbox--Geometric Flowers!

Good morning fellow crafters and bloggers!

I hope you have been enjoying going through your stash of crafting goodies with Kristine. What I love about Kristine's crafting tips and techniques is that she helps us to  think outside of the box. A once beloved punch gets a second chance at making us smile. Or, the negative space from a border punch now becomes a focal point. Well this week's toolbox tip utilizes what you already have on hand...scraps of paper, a trimmer, brads and your imagination =) And the best part, it is really simple to make!

Geometric Flowers...

1. Cut three square pieces of paper and one circle (cut sizes depend on how large you want your flower). However, the cuts here are 1 1/2", 1 1/4", 1" and a 3/4" circle.

2. Layer square pieces with the largest square on the bottom and so on. Then add circle on top and place a brad or button in the center. Crinkle and scrunch individual pieces. Voila, a geometric flower! 

Also try this: For added texture and depth ink the edges of your squares. To add additional dimension use small pop dots between each layer when assembling the flower and crinkle and scrunch accordingly.

Happy Scrappin',
