paper flowers

I have had such a crafty day! I was inspired by tricia at oh so crafty's blog the other night. She had made beautiful paper flowers and I decided to give them a go for myself.

I started of with a book I got from a charity shop for 50p and cut flower shapes out from the page using a template I made up earlier. Then I cut out a smaller flower from some papers I made up earlier. (I'll tell you how I made the papers at the end.)

Then I sewed them together with a button to hold the different layers in place, and added some beads to decorate round the edges. I ended up making three different ones, and attached them to strips of card to use as book marks!
