Simple punched flower accents







I saw the cutest little flower stickers at Michaels yesterday, it was 3 little clusters of 3 small blooms with leaves. They were 5.99. I started to buy them, but then I looked closely and thought that I could make something very similar in any color. Well, thanks to my friends Debbie, Robbie and Gabi, I have been learning how to make my punched flowers have dimension. With these I just punched the little blooms in a color cardstock, then inked the centers with a shade darker. I punched the little leaves and just added a liquid pear center! Easy, fast and pretty cute!!!! I thought I'd share some pics.
