How To . . . make torn paper flowers

Simple Torn Flower Tutorial

What you'll need:
*Paper or card stock
*Brad or button
*Hole punch
*Ink for distressing
1. Start by ripping four circles out of your paper. The should get progressively bigger. I actually drew loose circles on my card stock so I could make sure they were not all the same size.

2. The fun part: crumple them up into little balls!
3. Flatten them out again and arrange on top of each other from biggest to smallest. If you want the distressed look (like my red flower above), ink the edges with an ink pad first.

4. If you want to use a brad for the center, punch a hole with a hold punch and put the brad in. You could also sew a button on or create another center.

5. Attach to your card, page, or project! This really must be the easiest project we've EVER posted.

Oh, the projects you could use these simple flowers on! I can think of so many. What could you do with these flowers? Better yet, take pictures of any projects you create with these flowers and send us a link.
