I have found the most AWESOME blog with tons of tutorials for making embellishments (and everything else you can think of!) for cards and scrapbook pages and all of our fun paper projects. It's called Little Birdie Secrets. I was looking for an easy way to make some flowers that don't take the use of a Cricut die cutting machine, as I don't have one (yet!). I just loved the Little Birdie Secrets torn paper flowers and I had SO MUCH FUN wadding up the paper as tiny as I could get it, and then laying it out flat, and sanding the surface and the edges. It was somehow kind of freeing to be able to wad up all those little circles! The instructions are on the how to make torn paper flowers tutorial at Little Birdie Secrets.
|Compliments of Little Birdie Secrets' blog. I think their card stock was not the solid core card stock like I used from CTMH. She distressed the edges with darker ink which looks really neat!|
Here's a card I made with my own torn flower!
I used the CTMH Pemberly papers for this card. I love the blues and golds. I also used some of my old lace.
Happy tearing and wadding!
