Flight of Ideas

I sat down in my room last night with the full intention of working on Coby's wedding album-the one I supposedly gave him for Christmas. Only to get distracted by the shiny package of Que Sara Sara die cuts by K&Company-and I ended up with a new page instead. Kudos to Coby for helping with the title!
It was so much fun creating this page, as I was working poppies kept coming to mind so I made this cute little poppy flower that I have a tutorial for to share with you.
Supplies needed:
Distress Inks (I used Ripe Persimmon, Vintage Photo and Mustard Seed)
Mother's Day Bouquet Cricut Cart (Flowers 3 and 34)
Marvy Uchida 8 petal flower punch
Patterned Paper or Cardstock

You will need 7 petals for each flower. Start by cutting out two of Flower 3 the same size and cut them into sections inking the edges-for this flower I used 1.5" flowers and Ripe Persimmon to ink the edges.

Cut a small snip in the bottom of each petal, roll each petal to give it some curl and glue one tab over the other.

Adhere the petals to a scrap circle of cardstock. I drew marks on the scrap to somewhat evenly space the petals. Next cut two of Flower 34, I cut one each from brown and yellow paper at 3/4". From the yellow also punch one 8 petal flower. Curl up the edges of the flowers and adhere them together off setting the petals slightly.

Thanks for stopping by!
