I was inspired by a wallet I saw at the store. I thought, "I can make that with paper!" So I did. I thought it worked out. Tell me what you think.
It opens like a wallet, and I will close it with a Velcro dot. I learned how to make flowers from Christine David. I used a circle 4"x4" piece of card stock and cut it into a rough circle. Then I cut swirls in it (like a snail). Don't make your strips too narrow, or it will take forever to make your flower.
|Trim off the little tail at the end.|
I trimmed the little tail off of the circle, so I had a flat piece to start. Take your tweezers and wind the paper around the end of the tweezers.
Until you get to the end/inside of the circle.
Then put some Liquid Glass on the bottom of the circle and push the flower "petals" into the Liquid Glass, until it dries a little/sticks.
Here's a close-up of the flowers. I used Cotton Candy, Hollyhock and White Daisy for my flowers. The white flower was made from a 3 1/2"x3 1/2" square that I cut into a "circle." The other two were 4x4. I also used the new Spray Pen on the white flower. I also used some Glitz Gitter Gel on the edges of the flowers. This was really fun to make, and a lot easier than it looks.

For the inside the "wallet" I put a 3 1/2" piece of a small paper bag. (I actually cut the piece off the TOP of the bag, not the bottom.)
Isn't this a fun one! We'll be making this in card class this month. Can't wait to show you.
