Tissue Paper Fower 2

Hi everyone, I'd made this card before going away and didn't get time to post it to my blog.

The frame was made with the Martha Stewart Garden Trellis border punch which Becca Feeken shared how to do on her beautiful blog.
My bow was made from a roll of gauze bandaging and the flower from Tissue wrapping paper.
Trish had asked on my previous tissue paper flower how I made my flower so I'll attempt to show how I did it below.

The inside of the card was stamped and heat embossed with Super fine detail embossing powder from Ranger and the stamp is from Stamp-It, the words are...........

The butterfly's attractiveness derives not only from colors and symmetry:  deeper motives contribute to it.  We would not think them so beautiful if they did not fly, or if they flew straight and briskly like bees, or if they stung, or above all if they did not enact the perturbing mystery of metamorphosis: the latter assumes in our eyes the value of a badly decoded message, a symbol, a sign.  ~Primo Levi

I hope I have left enough room above and below the quote for a personal message.

Here's how I made the tissue paper flower.

I then cut them with the Nellie Snellen Doily Multi frame, but you could use any die you have or just cut circles and use decorative scissors to give them a fancy edge.

Other dies I have used.


Next pierce a hole through the centre and add a brad, I added a punched big sky flake to the center.
Now we start scrunching each layer up around the brad.
Until all layers are done.
Then its time to start peeling them back down again, being very careful as the tissue paper is very delicate and tends to tear. Especially with this doily die, ask me how I know : ))
The finished flower.
I hope you were able to follow my instructions and have fun making Tissue Paper flowers.
