"For today's how to I decided to make a card that utilizes circles in a few different ways, and I'll show you how to make the center paper flower, and the circle confetti background." - Laura Craigie, Pebbles Design Team Member
Here are the punches, and paper pad I used for today's card.
Making confetti with your patterned paper can be done in a few ways, if you have a border punch like this it's super easy, or if you have a die cut machine you can set it up to cut hundreds of tiny shapes at one time. Once you have a small amount you just need to coat the top of your card with pretty much any adhesive you like, and sprinkle it on till you are happy.
Next I got started on the easy paper flower by simply punching out 4 circles with a large circle punch.
Fold your 4 circles in half.
Fold those circles in half again, and add a foam adhesive to the middle so they keep some dimension on your project. Your 4 "petals" of the flower are now done. SO easy! :)
Here is my nearly paper flower, and the confetti background. Using a dry adhesive allowed me to even sew through the top confetti for an additional fun detail.
Finally my finished card! I added a dimensional flower to the paper one just for fun, and then stuck my sentiment in a circle around that. I really like how the card is so busy and fun up top, and contrasts the simpleness of the bottom portion.
