Featured DT Member, Michelle Hodges

Today we are featuring our DT member, Michelle Hodges

I am Michelle Hodges and I live in South Texas. My husband and I have a
seven year old daughter. I'm a SAHM and I volunteer at our daughters school
and at church.
When I'm not scrapping I enjoy spending time with family, being outdoors,
Church activities, and traveling.
I started scrapbooking twelve years ago and I started getting involved in
the online scrapping World right after our daughter was born!
My scrapbooking style is shabby-chic, artsy, simple with clean lines and
some vintage.

When I'm not creating tags, cards, or LO's I love to alter items, and create Mixed Media projects! I love to use misting, inking, paint and layering when I create! My DT time with Berry71 Bleu tags will soon be ending. I have really enjoyed creating with Marivic's amazing & gorgeous tags!
Thank you Marivic for being a part of your DT team!!

Below are some of my favorite projects creating with Berry71Bleu tags!!

Happy Friday!! Today I'm sharing a quick and easy flower tutorial using
paper scraps!

First you need to punch 2 circles out! I used a 2 inch size circle for my
petals. ( The larger the circle the larger the flower will be.) The bottom
circle can either be a little large as shown in Step 3 where you see the
bottom layer showing, which is the lighter outside green color. If you do
not want that bottom layer of flower shown you will want to use a smaller
circle to attach the final flower on top of.
If you would like inside petals of your flower to have a certain color or
pattern you will need to use double sided paper!

For Step 2 you will want to fold the outside paper inward like shown in the
picture. If you would like your inside petals to have more of a point than a rounded inside point to the petals, you will want to fold your papers more of a point at the bottom of your circle when you are folding the paper.

As seen in step 2. I would suggest practicing with your first 2 circles before you finish the entire flower when deciding how you would like your inside flower petals to look!

The final step in step 3 is to start attaching you flower on the outside
circle with glue or glue dots.
Depending on how you over lap each circle of your petals on the bottom
circle will depends on how large and how you would like your flower to look
when completed. I inked the inside of my petals since I did not use double
sided paper. You could always add glitter to the inside petals or leave them white or use the double sided paper before you start your project!
Here are two flowers I completed on this LO! I used double sided papers from Graphic 45 to create these two flowers!
The flowers are so versatile in creating your style the way you desire them
to look!

I hope I have inspired you to create some more flowers with using your paper scraps!!
