  • Tissue Paper
  • Brayer
  • Ink or Large Inkpad
  • Scissors
  • (Optional) Shaped Punches or Spellbinders


  1. Grab your brayer, some ink (a large inkpad works much better) and your tissue paper. If you have some shaped punches or spellbinders, it will make your life much easier ;)

  2. Using your brayer, ink up the whole sheet of tissue paper. Make sure you roll the ink into various directions to get a lovely distressy type look. I'm not worried about covering every single inch in colour, but if you want a more solid look add a good slather of ink!

  3. Next use your dies (I have used 3 different sized scallop circles) as your template to cut out squares. Each layer of flower should have about 8-12 layers. Once you have them all cut and sorted, pop them through your die-cutting machine, I'm a cuttlebug girl ;) If you are a punch girl, make sure you back your tissue paper with a bit of cardstock to give your punch something as a base.

  4. The die-cutting machine will compress your layers together, so pull them apart again.

  5. Next gather up each pile again and then scrunch them up really well. Scrunch - unfold - scrunch - unfold - scrunch ;)

  6. Next simply place the layers one on top of the other.

  7. Top it off with a big brad, a button or other embellishment of your choice.

  8. You can either leave it at this stage or go further and ruffle up the layers again, I just kinda squeeze my layers all up and around the brad.

    And then lightly unruffle them till I'm happy with the look.
