The Cutest Scrapbook Flowers

Not sure how a week passed and I haven't posted anything.
I've been working on a scrapbook album  for Ashley's sorority that will be put up for a silent auction in a few weeks. Somehow it's become much bigger than it was ever intended to be and it's got me a little overwhelmed.

Part of the project is to make most of the embellishments from scrapbook paper and I came up with this super cute flower to use. And it's so easy that I need to share it with you.

Items you need:
scrapbook paper of your choice
flower paper puncher (much quicker than drawing a circle and cutting it out)
spray water bottle
some brads

Cut or punch out 5 to 6 flowers for each flower
lay them out and spray them lightly with a water bottle

then take each flower and scrunch it up into a tiny wad.
Once they're all wadded up, unfold them.
Be careful because when they're wet, they're more fragile and easier to tear.

Pierce a hole in the middle of each flower and then put them in a layer and add the brad.
Then one by one, push each layer up around the brad.
Start slowly moving the layers down and it's done!

Once the flowers dry, they're really sturdy and each one is so different.
