Tips & Technique- Glitter Flowers

I came across the latest Prima "Metalique" Flowers coming to Cha this year & thought I would give them a go. Don't throw away your glitter gift bags you get for christmas & birthdays' recycle them into pretty flowers for your scrapbook pages & cards .
Here's How:-
Step 1.
Cut open your gift bag
Step 2.
Draw 3 or 4 different size flowers on the opposite side

Step 3.
Cut them out
Step 4.
Scrunch them up under running water(water distressing) & dry with a heat embossed tool or under the sun

Step 5.
Assemble your flowers with double sided tape & add a brad or pearls for the centre
Here's a card I made for an engagement/wedding using one of the silver flowers


  1. love this, great use of recycling and they look soooo pretty too...

  2. Lovely flowers Joy!!! Well done....
