Challenge #11: Handmade Flowers

 Here we are on Challenge #11 at the Lasting Memories Layout Challenge Blog
This week's theme is " Handmade Flowers."
To make my flowers, I used my Cricut and the "George & Basic Shapes" cartridge and cut out two different flowers in several sizes.
 I then took a sponge and some 'Close to My Heart' ink to the flowers, giving them a distressed look.
 Then...crumple, crumple, squich, squash! Make them look like real petals by adding some dimension...
Now carefully unfold the squished flowers!
 Attach them together using a brad and tada! A beautiful handmade flower!!
 I used my lovely new flowers on a layout I have been working on for a "pre-wedding" book for one of my Hubby's cousins who just got married.

Hope you enjoyed learning how to make flowers! It is super fast and easy, so give it a whirl and then let me know how it went!
Don't forget to check out what the rest of the Design Team came up with at Lasting Memories!
Happy Scrappin'!
