Greetings, scrapbookers! This week we’re celebrating the week leading up to National Scrapbooking Day 2012 (Saturday, May 5) with the theme “scrapbooking around the house.” Each day we’ll host a variety of activities to get your scrap on, including tips, challenges, and prizes GALORE on both the Creating Keepsakes and Club CK blogs. On Saturday we’ll continue the festivities in both places, and we’ve also teamed up with Big Picture Classes to bring you a FREE 12-hour Creative Crop (sign up to reserve your spot today).
As we scrapbook around the house, today we’re visiting the LIBRARY. Let’s see how CK Dream Team member
Autumn Baldwin approaches it.
Hi there! I created a video teaching you how to create these beautiful dimensional flowers from paper torn from an old book. I think you'll find it super easy! Here's a list of the scrapbooking supplies I used:
- pages from a book
- circle punch (mine was 2 1/2" in diameter)
- dry adhesive (such as a tape runner)
- a brad for the flower center
Watch this short video (under 4 minutes!) and find out how quick and easy it can be to create pretty book paper flowers for scrapbooking and card making.
Create a flower using my tutorial and use it to embellish a scrapbook page, card, tag, picture frame, or other project. If you don't have book paper handy, any paper will do. Upload a picture of your artwork to the Club CK idea galleries and you could win a sweet scrapbooking prize containing tons of paper and embellishments from
BoBunny Press and
I hope you enjoy this flower tutorial!
