This week at Paper Play the challenge was Paper Roses to make your own paper flower and at Paperlicious Designs the challenge was to use paper pleats and on 365 Cards Day 14 the challege was to make your own flower embellishment. I combined the three and made my own pleated paper flower.
Here is my card. Printed Paper is Crate Paper. I made this flower by cutting a strip of paper and pleating it like you would make a paper fan. Then I used a needle and thread to stitch through all the pleats at one end and pulled the thread up tight to make the paper form a circle. Brad and sentiment unknown.
