      Well, the savages snagged all the flower add ons for the June kit so I had to make my own!

      Here’s a look at them.

      I used to sew my daughter’s Easter and Christmas dresses when she was younger and I have a lot of sewing patterns that I no longer use. But, now I do have a use for them! I made these flowers out of sewing pattern tissue paper. Very simple. Even if you don’t sew, you can pick up old patterns at garage sales.
      Keep the sewing pattern folded so you get many die cut layers all at once. I used the TH Tattered Florals die.

      Then, pull out about half of the layers that have been cut. Here’s a quick look at how many I pulled out to create the flowers.

      Next, you will need to use a hole punch to make a hole through the center of all the layers.

      Now, put a metal brad through the hole to secure all the layers together. Then, you can begin gathering up the layers around the brad.

      Continue scrunching up layers of tissue around the brad, like so.

      After I pulled and scrunched about 15-20 layers, the flower looked like this.

      Now, once the center is created it’s okay to begin pulling up multiple layers and scrunching them to fill out the flower.

      There you have it! I used two different sizes on the sketch challenge and they worked perfect. The tissue flowers are perfect for heritage pages.

      Give it a whirl! I’d love to see what you create!
