rustic flower

Last week was a little crazy so I didn't get to the sketch at 2 sketches 4 you so I decided to do it today with one of those rustic flowers. There really fun and easy to do, first I want to show you the card I made then I'll give you the step by step instructions.
And for the instructions....
I used my cricut (walk in my garden) for cutting these particular flowers out but you can do these by hand too. I also used thicker cardstock, if you use thinner paper you can cut more flowers.
1. start with 8 flowers 4 large (2 1/2"), 4 small (2")
2. distress flower front and back
3. crumple the flowers.4. fold each flower in half, put a bit of glue to hold it in half.5. pick the spot you want your flower and glue half of your larger flower down. Next glue the other half to make your full flower.6. glue your next layer with your "seam" facing going the other direction. 7. continue layering until your flower is finished. I finished this flower with a button but you can put a jewel, or you may cut another smaller flower to cover the seam (of course distress the flower before adhering to your final project.)
Good luck and enjoy!
