Martha Stewart Fence Edger Punch Paper Flower

Paper Flower made with MS Fence Edge Punch
Recently, I realized that all the paper punches, die cuts and other tools that I've acquired could possibly help me make more interesting paper flowers.  And so my experimenting began! (Mad Scientist evil laugh could be inserted here if this was audio blogging.)

1 1/2" and 1" strips after punching and gluing ends
When making the pinwheel/rosettes that are on lots of my artwork, I usually score the card stock at 1/4" increments.  I decided to do the same with these.  After hot gluing them flat.  I stacked them.  Added a button and voila!  A new flower design.
I think this flower will look great on an Autumn card

This is only the beginning!  I have tons more to try out!

Supplies are all Close To My Heart except thread and of course, the wonderful Martha Stewart punch.

  3. Hi, did you score and then punch the edges? Or punch then score and fold?
