Star Flowers

There are so many beautiful paper flowers made by layering flowers over flowers…so I was looking at different shapes of flowers and I seen some look like stars. That’s when I decided to make stars over stars…. J This is another way to make some fabulous flowers if you don’t own a flower punch. So here is how I made my star flowers.

First, I cut out 8 stars, 4 different sizes x 2 : 2.5inch, 2inch, 1.5 inch and 1 inch

Second, I chalked the edges of all of them and added dots by using a fine tip marker.

Third, I scrunched the edges of the stars using my fingertips.

Fourth, I layered the stars on top of each other.

Lastly, I added a button in the center….and curled the tips upwards.

Here is another view:

Hope you try these star flowers on your next project!
