Circle Flowers!

I've been seeing the cutest flowers made using the scallop circle punch, so thought maybe the circle punches would work too. It did!! Instead of using all of one size, I tried using 4 sizes and came out with what appears like a carnation. This flower was made using (3) 1 3/4 circles, (3) 1 3/8 circles, (2) 1 1/4 circles and (1) 1 inch circle. Just crinkle each piece up, lay back out flat, stack them, poke hole through center and secure together with a brad. Then start from the top piece, crinkling it tight together, doing this to each piece as you work to the bottom. Once all pieces are crinkled up, start pulling it out to your desired look. Here's the flower used on a card.....hope you like!
