I made paper flowers again out of an old book using a scallop punch, Distress ink – vintage photo and Glimmer mist.   Sometimes I make these with a basic small brad to hold them together then glue a big fun button in the middle.

I sponged the edges of the flowers with vintage photo ink then layer three scallop punched shapes.   I sprayed them with various colors of glimmer mist then scrunched them all up. After they were dry I gently pried them open.  They are a great addition to cards and other artsy projects.

Suggestion:   I use old books that I find at thrift shops that have pages turning yellow.   I also make sure they’re either inspirational, or children’s books.  You don’t want an offensive word right in the middle of your special flower.

Be Creative!
