Did you know all you need to make a beautiful handmade flower accent perfect for cards, scrapbook pages, or other projects is a corner rounder? Check out the flower on the card I made below.
Here’s how to make this easy handmade flower:
Punch or cut three or four different size circles.
Fold one of your circles in half, and trim the two corners with a corner rounder (you can use scissors if you don’t have a corner rounder).
Unfold the circle, rotate it ¼ turn, fold it in half, and again trim the two corners with a corner rounder.
Repeat this four times for each circle.
Layer the circles using adhesive foam, and add a brad, button, or epoxy for the flower center.
Play around with the corner rounder for different looks. The more you trim on each corner, the more oval-shaped your flower petals will be. The less you trim, the more square-shaped they’ll be. Give this easy flower a try on your next project!
