Step by Step- Making flowers for your layout

Hi Everyone and welcome to Technique Tuesday.

 This week i wanted to show you an easy way to make some pretty flowers for your page- easy and cost effective too! I bought my little bags from the Warehouse but you can get the bags in different colours from the $2 shop as well and in different sizes.
First of all you will need some little bags that look like this-

Cut it in two- underneath the sewn line- as shown
Then using the drawstrings - pull it tight so that it looks like this

Then with the second part of your bag cut out 2 circles like this-  it can be quite rough - i didn;t measure-

Then i tucked these 2 circles into the top - through the hole to make the flower fuller. i  used a small circle of chipboard or cardstock underneath to glue it all together.

Then i added a flower in the centre of my large flower and a brad for the smaller one.

and the smaller one


This is the layout that i used these flowers on - using Teresa Collins papers



I hope that you will give these flowers a try - they are great for people like mewho are sewing challenged!
