Simple Flower Tutorial

Disclaimer: This technique has probably been done a thousand times by people in every corner of the world.
I have not seen it done before, but that does not mean it's not out there.
I'm simply sharing a fun little flower that I made a few days ago.

Handmade flowers are all the rage it seems.

What I like the most is that they can be as simple or as elaborate as YOU want them to be.

All you need to make this one is a circle punch and some scissors.
Don't have a circle punch? You can cut some circles with your Cricut.
Or you can trace the bottom of a glass and cut it out.
Just get yourself two circles that are the same size.

I'm going to let the pictures show you step-by-step how I did it since I pretty much stink at giving instructions.

^Those are kinda cute. Add something to the center and you have yourself a darling little flower.^ 

Any question, please ask. 
These are so easy and fun to make!

Once you make one you will likely make a "few" more.

Oh, and use scrap paper! You know you have tons of it.
Don't you dare cut into new paper to make these flowers,
they're perfect for using up scraps.

I hope you enjoyed the tutorial, let me know if you give it a try!
