Make your own Flowers

There is nothing more gorgeous than a bright vase of colourful flowers. They brighten any room and bring a smile when given as a gift or to celebrate a special day.
We would like you to make homemade flowers for your project this week and make them for any occasion. You could make them using your die-cutting machine or by hand. They could be made using lots of different materials such as card, ribbon, felt or fabric. Let's see what you come up with.

Max 3 entries per person
You can use any manual (not electric) die-cutting/embossing machine,
dies or embossing folders to enter our challenges.

Our sponsor this week is 
who are offering these 2 fantastic prizes for our lucky winner - a beautiful Butterfly die and the Musical Notes self-mount stamp.

 Here are design teams homemade flower projects.

 I made an origami flower using the tutorial here plus the Cuttlebug Nat embossing folder and a label die from Sizzix.

Cuttlebug Items Used:  Cheery Lynn Designs-Mini Fanciful Flourish & Spellbinders Medallion #4

I have used a folder by Crafts Too with flowers.
I made the flower with 10 punches, very easy and then make a few cuts.
I saw a tip on the internet, use a stapler to put them together!
It only works with thin paper.
