Crinkly Paper Flowers

This is a quick, easy and FREE little craft project
Isn’t that a GREAT combination (quick, free and easy?)
home 015
Take newspaper
Comics for a hit of light color
or black & white for a classic neutral version
Fold it up so there is a stack of papers…..I took the comic section and folded it up 4 times.
Cut 3 sets of circles (small, medium, large)
Hole punch through each layers of circles

home 011
Separate the cut circles into individual circles
Wet them a bit (don’t drown them just moisten)
Crinkle them up and let them dry
You can either
let them dry a bit and them put them onto a brad (little ones on first so they are on top).  They are more fragile and a little more likely to tear at the hole but you can do it this way if you like (or if you are impatient like me - ahem!)

or let them dry completely and then put them on the brads
Squish the petals as they dry.

And you end up with some cute little flowers…

From here you can:
    • Add a loop to the back and hang em up or use as bows on gifts!
    • Spray them with clear sealer and use them as
    • pins
    • additions to headbands
    • barrettes
    • magnets
    • grouped in a bowl and set out just for pretty
You can use whatever scrapbook paper you’d like for this project to interject the colors of your choice.
