End at The Crop Spot, with Sandy at our Blog!: http://www.scrapbookingsuppliesrus.com/blog/article/recent/?blog_id=10001

Now I'd like to share my project with you made exclusively with products from The Sampler!

Flowers LO:-

On this LO I made these PP Flowers, here is a quick tutorial on how to make them:-

Step 1: Cut out 3 circles, 1 large, 1 medium and 1 small.


Step 2: Make cuts on the circle as shown on my circle with the pencil lines. Your circle should now look like this.


Step 3: Cut a small triangle out between each of the cuts. Don't worry if the triangles or cuts or uneven. When you start layering everything you won't be able to notice.


Step 4: Layer the flower shapes on top of each other and stick down with glue dots or 3D pads. Bend the flower petals up a little.

Step 5: Add a button and pin to the centre to finish the flower. You can also add ribbons and gems as finishing touches.

Thanks for looking, you can find all the products used in the April 'The Sampler' Kit.
