How to Make a Simple Paper Flower Embellie

Hey there ladies! I'm sorry I delayed this one..Here's the how-to on making a very very simple flower embellie. Hope you will like it as much as I do ;)

First, punch out one scallop circle using any cardstock or PP of your choice. The scallop circle has to be 3". You can use any other puncher size but a 3" one will give you some really pretty petals :) . There's the punched out piece.

Next, punch out a 3 petalled flower using the Carla Craft punch.

And lastly, using the Circle punch, punch out one circle.

Once you have all three shapes, put a little bit of glue on the 6 petalled flower & glue it to the scallop circle.

Using your scissors, cut from the dip (yes dip & not tip *lol*) of the Scallop circle till you reach the dip of the petalled flower. If you're using a 3" scallop circle, you will need to cut a every four scallop. Once that's done, affix the small circle to the middle. (You can also use foam dots to layer the flower to give it dimension)

Using your fingers, give a gentle bend at both ends for each cluster that's been cut, inwards, to give a curve look

Tada!!! The final product!!
