Easy Paper Flower Tutorial

I had made this card for the design team I'm on and wanted to share a tutorial for the flower I made per your request!  Thank you for all the wonderful comments on my other post with the card.  It's so easy!

 I've seen many of these flowers made using a brad in the middle to hold it together.  I wanted to do something different with ribbon so here's what I came up with:

 You will need some old dictionary pages or pages from an old book.  I use pages from a huge dictionary I bought at a thrift store.  It has the thinner, lighter pages than an ordinary book.  I like the weight of those pages because they are easier to crimp and crinkle.  You also need some ribbon, a stapler and a scallop punch.

 Punch out six scallop circles.

 Stack your scallops together and lay your ribbon across them in the middle.  Staple the ribbon to the scallops.

 Tie a knot in the ribbon, the staple holds it in place.

 Trim the edges of your ribbon.

 Crinkle and fluff up each scallop until it's as fluffy as you like.
Enjoy!
