Paper Flower Hummingbird

I'm having lots of fun making these paper flowers and adding them to my crafting!

My color scheme came from the beautiful designer paper in the Occasions Mini Catalog called Shades of Spring.  It's Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery and So Saffron.  The stamped images are from Elements of Style, a new stamp set that will be available on May 1st, from the Summer Mini Catalog.  Click HERE,  HERE and HERE to see other samples made with this great new set. I used Stampin' Write Markers to color the flower and filigree image directly on the rubber, and the hummingbird is cut out and adhered with Dimensionals.  I used some Certainly Celery 5/8" Satin Ribbon behind the flower. 

The flower is made by cutting out Shades of Spring Designer Series Paper using the following:

  • 1 flower from the smallest flower on the Flower Folds Die for the Big Shot
  • 1 flower from the XL Fancy Flowers Punch
  • 6 flowers from the Scallop Circle Punch

Just crumple each flower up, then smooth out and stack them in the order above.  Using a Paper Piercing Tool and Mat Pack, pierce a hole through all 8 layers, then add a brad through the center.  Work the petals of the flowers back to achieve the desired look.
