Counterfeit blog hop July

Hello- welcome to the latest instalment of the Counterfeit kit blog hop- if you need to go back to the beginning click here


The challenge for this months blog hop was flower power- a creative way to use flowers on a LO- well maybe mine isn't really creative but I found the tutorial for these flower rosettes on Pinterest ( and I pass my version of the instructions on to you below)



The LO- my kit had a lot of yellow and black in that I wasn't using- so I punched my circles out of those papers- with the teal buttons on the black they flowers matched perfectly with some recent photos of the circus that visited our town ( actually it was on our street)


Here's a close up of the flowers

And here's how to make them



1. punch out four scalloped circles from paper- double sided papers look best as you can see the reverse side

2. fold all of the circles in half

3. overlap the halved circles- each half has to go over and under another half

4. stick a button in the middle



your next step on the hop is here at the fabulous Milissa's ( hope this works ok- I am trying to send this from a dodgy wi-fi connection while on holiday- apoligies if it doesn't work.)
