Scrap Paper Flowers

Use up paper scraps to create these adorable Scrap Paper Flowers, perfect for adding to gift bags, cards, journals, and more.  This is a great way to clean out your paper stash...and a fun project for the kids to do, too!  You could even make a large assortment of these paper flowers and put them on display for all to see and enjoy.  Best of all, these flowers may have plenty to say, but they don't need sun or water...just some colorful button embellishments!

Materials:

  • Scrap paper
  • Stickers
  • Laura Kelly Buttons
  • Mod Podge and foam brush
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun/adhesive

 

Instructions:

  1. The first step is to make the flowers.  They are super easy and fun.  Cut a circle out of a scrap of cardboard and add petals cut from scraps of decorative paper using Mod Podge, applying liberally before and after every piece gets added.  When the flower is complete, add another layer of Mod Podge and set it aside to dry while you make your next one.

  2. When the flowers are dry, you can add word art to make them unique.  I used Tiny Text stickers from Cosmo Cricket.  After I put them on the flowers, I went over them with the Mod Podge just to make them blend in better.  I waited to use my ad-tech hot glue to add the Laura Kelly colored buttons for centers until the flowers were on the projects, just in case another layer of Mod Podge might be needed first.
