Circle flowers

I have seen a lot of circle flowers on blogs lately. I did mine a tad bit different then the ones I have seen. First I punched out lots of circles in various sizes. Then I crumpled up the circles until the paper fibers broke down. I took each circle and split in in half. If you have crumpled your paper enough it comes apart very easily. Then you have two circles each with a nice soft side that feels like suede. I put the circles on top of each other and punched through the middle with my Crop a Dile and added a brad. Then I scrunched up the edges a bit to form the flower. The square behind the flower is made with the new Scallop Trim Border and Corner punches. I think I finally get how to use them. :)
