I had this Styrofoam tree left over that I wanted to cover with flowers. I punched out patterned paper and old book paper with 2 inch scalloped circle punch. Each flower has three layers of paper, three for the book paper and then one patterned paper with two book papers. I don't know if you can tell that I alternated the rows of book paper, every other row. It just worked itself out. I was worried that at the end the flowers will not fit, but they did. I used brads for the flower centers. I had this huge box of Basic Grey brads and they were perfect. At the end, using a make up sponge, I painted the flower edges with Bubble Gum Shimmerz paint and Hi Ho Silver Blingz. And a card I made for a sweet little girl. Everything is from the January kit and I added fabric, flower and the button.
