Wanna recycle your telephone book? Make flowers


I found these flowers on this blog but I see she now has the photo out for publication. She found the idea on this blog so I decided to look through my old telephone books and make flowers using some of those pages. These flowers are super easy to make. I used my Stampin Up flower scallop punch and punched out 5 flowers. Put them together in a pile and attach a brad in the middle of the flower. Then, crinkle each piece up (see other blog) till you get to the bottom flower. Un-crinkle (is that a word?) the flowers and attach a button in the middle. I sponged mine with a little pink ink to match the paper a bit. Isn't it cute? Hopefully, it will mail ok!
