Hello happy bloggers!

If you are looking for the Sweet Sketch Wednesday Hop, please scroll down.

Making flowers has proven to be a cumbersome task for me but Glue Scissors Paper wanted the design team to come up with that in this week's challenge. Back in January, I started searching for a tutorial that would help me and through countless videos and tutorials, I finally found a few that I actually could do with ease. Here's how I got started.

I didn't have a scallop punch so I used the plastic scallop template I had.

Once I had opened the flowers, added glimmer mist, I used gold stickles on the edges.

Then I saw a tutorial for a basket on Just Magnolia (or Bev's) and added these flowers to it.

Then, I just went on YouTube and did a bunch of flowers to see what I could come up with. All in all, this was a challenging but very FUN project! The design team were busy making some beauties of their won. I'm sure you have some great flowers you can add by joining the Glue, Scissors, Paper challenge. Go on, go have some fun!

Happy Crafting!

Terry, thanks for sharing this great idea. I have been trying my hand at making them this weekend too. I guess I was on the right track. I didn't have any tutorials to go by, just trying it on my own. Yours are just beautiful! I love every one of them!
