Revisiting an old technique…

 

I have to admit I don’t use a lot of flowers on my layouts, especially 3 dimensional ones.  But the theme of my page was about a tea party, which of course brings to mind flowers, doilies, and everything frilly and fancy.  So I went back to my flower making technique arsenal and decided to do some accordion fold flowers.

I simply cut strips of patterned paper and then punched one long edge with a punch.  Then I folded back and forth the create the pleats and secured with a big glue dot.  I topped each with another punched shape and a brad. I used patterned paper that had an ombre print on it, and I love how the pattern turned out once the flowers were folded.

I used a large doily on the background (from my stash) and a few punched circles of other patterns.  The title I cut with my Cameo using a font called The Lost Paintings.
