Flower McLinky Party

As I promised here is the Flower McLinky Party! I want to see what you have created. I love flowers and I use them a lot in my work. I have used paper flowers, fabric flowers, plastic flowers, silk flowers, bead flowers and more!

Today I want to show you how easy it is to create this paper wrinkled flowers. Really, so easy!


Scrapbook paper
Ink Pad
Embellishment ( I used a button you can use anything)

1. Cut 3 circles out of the scrapbook paper. You need to cut a big one, medium and a small circle.

2. Scrunch up the circles really good. The more wrinkled they are, the better. If they rip from the side, thats ok. They look better like that.

3. Using your ink pad, lightly rub around the circle and in the center. It gives it an awesome look.

4. Now using your permanent marker, draw a line around the circle. Make sure its not to close to the edge.

5. Glue all three pieces together.

6. Embellish the center of the paper flower. I used a button but you can use glitter, rhinestones, ribbon etc...

Final step is to add the flower to your artwork.

I finally finished this collage. I have been wanting to make a funky collage for ever. I finally did. I created this pop art print to use in my collage. I really had no idea how I was going to do it. Everything came together the moment I stood in front of a blank piece of wood. Its a picture of my niece when she was about 7 months old. Its going to look perfect in my craft room. I am liking this idea of making funky collages. Its really fun. I will be adding this piece to my Etsy shop soon. Its beautiful!

Now its your turn to show everyone your flower creations. Rules are simple. Add your link to McLinky showing what you have done that involves making a flower. It could be a paper flower ( like the one I did), ribbon flowers, fabric flowers anything that has to do with flowers. Even if you decorated something with flowers. I cant wait to see your creations.
