Here is a video I made a few years back on how to make a simple Paper Flower (a crumple flower). These are great for embellishing Cards, Scrapbook Pages and other paper crafting projects.
You can use almost any type of paper, and be creative. The water mist I am using in the video is a mister with water and a small amount of metalic pint. It adds a sheen to the paper flowers once dried. Inking the edges gives your flower more depth and an aged look. I used these in the album below, and on some scrapbook pages.
I hope you find this easy and useful!
