Have you seen these super easy carnations?
Here's one I made today with scrap yellow cardstock.
Lately I've seen lots of pretty flowers made out of felt, old sewing pattern paper, newspaper, old text books, ribbon, tissue paper, metal etc...
I just love the look of them!
I've been trying them out when I can. I've done paper roses before - click HERE to see them - but I haven't tried the carnations so today I thought I'd make some.
Would you like to make some too?
All you need is 3 same sized scalloped circles cut out of card stock (any colour), a brad and a paper piercer.
If you're using coloured card stock you can skip this next step if you want but I was using up some white scrap paper so I decided to ink the edges in a soft pink tone. Do this BEFORE the next step.
Take your 6 pieces - fuzzy side up - and stack them. Not right on top of each other but a little off set like below. Poke a hole in the middle and add the brad.
Now start crumpling up the layers...
Until your satisfied with the look of your carnation!
How easy is that?
