Easy paper flower tutorial

This metal paper filer was on sale at my local DI. It was $2.00, which I thought was pretty steep for the condition it was in, but because I could see it's potential, I forked over my cash.


I primed and painted...

I picked some fancy paper...

I used my most talented friend ~Mod Podge~...

I added some paper flowers....

And I got this....


Paper Flower Tutorial:Cut various sizes of circles from coordinating scrapbook paper.

Cut little "V's" all the way around your circles.

Fold up your circles. (pardon my blurry picture here.)

CAREFULLY unfold your circles, but leave them kind of wrinkled.

Layer them on top of one another, and glue them into place.

**My flower center is a marble, great tutorial here~~

  2. You certainly did see the potential! What a fab makover! I love the flowers, they add a little somethin' somethin'!

  3. Hey, I really like the way you redid the filer - it looks like something you would like to display rather than hiding it away - especially with the pretty flowers!! I like the way you made them 3-D!!! Thanks for sharing! You go girl!!!

  4. Amazing what a little paint and pretty paper can do, huh? Love the project. Thanks for sharing.

  5. So cute! Those are really fun paper flowers! I'd love if you linked up to my Scrappy Saturdays!

  6. Nicely done! I love it! I did similar to metal bookends that I hated the look of, but could really have used. Prettied up they fit in with my decor better.

  7. Thanks for linking up to Scrappy Saturdays! I'll be featuring this tomorrow!

  8. Very, very cute! Thanks for sharing. Visiting from That's So Very Cheri.
