tuesday...circle punch flower tutorial

Hi! I'm here today with a brand new tutorial so let's get started! Today I'll be sharing with you how to make a flower using only your circle punch!

  • 1" circle punch 
  • embossing tool 
  • flower center 
  • cardstock 

Step 1. Punch four 1" circles and draw a line through the middle.

Step 2. Using your circle punch, punch out a 'petal' from the circle, up to the line.

Step 3. Do the same thing with both sides of the circle. You can use a pair of twizzers to help keep the circle in place. Do this with 3 of the circles.

Step 4. Ink the edges of your petals and finish drawing a pie shape on the last circle. You will use this as a guide for your petals.

Step 5. Shape your 6 petals using an embossing tool.

Step 6. Start adhering your petals unto the 1" circle using the marks as a guide.

Step 7. Once you are done, add a flower center or anything you sih to the center of the flower.

You can make different size petals and therefore flowers by using a bigger circle punch. You can try layering these flowers for a more full bloom too!

Below is a card that I made using this flower layered on top of a larger one.

Here's a close up of my flower and card. I used stickles to give it a bit of a finished glittery look to my flower.
