Happy happy Joy joy...it's FRIDAY!!!
Well, I hope you are ready for a relaxing and wonderful weekend and if you have some time in your craft room, here's a little tutorial for making some flowers using punches!
My wonderful husband just returned home from overseas last week and yesterday when I got home, there was a gorgeous bouquet of flowers on the table for me!!! WOO HOO!!!
Well, there's a catch..under the gorgeous flowers was a piece of paper detailing the purchase of his new car!! Bwhahahahahaha....
Anyway, I love the flowers and was sitting there admiring them while visiting blogs and I saw my dear blogger friend, Lisa S posted this and I was so inspired to make my own. Since I didn't have the die cut to make those particular flowers, I decided to use what I do have and challenged myself to just use punches. So, here they are...
The first thing I decided to do was select images of flowers I really liked and tried to duplicate them. The top picture is my inspiration photo and below that shows you the punch and cuts and final product.

I was inspired by Linda's use of TH Tattered Pinecone for making roses, so I tried that too. Also added a few hot glue droplets for dew.

I'm sure a lot of you probably already use your punches to make flowers so if you have some neat ideas using other punches, please leave me a comment as I'd love to learn new ideas too!
Have a great weekend everyone and happy crafting!!
