Challenge Me Tuesday: Custom Flowers

**Next week we want to feature your projects using any type of Tree
Send us a link to your project to Practicalscrapperslayouts(at)gmail.com

We asked you to show us your flowers, you know the one of a kind flowers you've made from scratch, or you've altered in a way that's all your own. We've got some great examples for you, including a video tutorial, so be sure to read to the end of the post.

Practical Scrapper Christa made the Accordion flower, and added rub-ons to the others to customize them.

Carrie Labani made these sweet pleated flowers to compliment the flower on her daughter's headband.

This card by Karen Zabuska features a beautiful handmade lace flower.

 Visit Valerie Durham's blog to see how she created these lovely blooms using a Creative Elements Stamp set.

Irit Shalom's page features a pretty handmade tissue paper and tulle flower.

Practical Scrapper Bev shows us how to take inspiration from premade flowers and make our own using materials we already have on hand: flower punches or die cuts, floss or baker's twine and buttons.

Bev  also shows us how to make flowers using our scraps of ribbon in this video tutorial:

Happy Scrapping!

**Designer projects are not always linked in our posts, but you can always find their blogs in our sidebar or in the staff tab**
