Distressed Vintage Flowers

Alright, so this technique is one of my favorites!  I decided that I would do a quick little video on it, but I must caution you that this only my second video.  So, it's not quite perfect yet.  Here is a picture of what I'm going to make in the video:


Ok, Here's the video:



I obviously use these flowers in a lot of my projects.  They are so easy and fun! They look like they take a long time, but they really don't!

  6. I haven't tried making flowers out of cardstock. I need to try it - there would be lots of great uses for them!

  14. Such a pretty flower, and from the picture would not have thought it was made from cardstock. Paper is not a medium I've used much, but need to change that. You tutorial is good, give yourself credit. Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration at Sunday's Best.
