I got my handmade card in a pack meant for kids crafts at the cheap shops.....yes you could use other card you will get different results depending on the fibers in the card i found that the handmade card looks closest to the prima look...just experiment with differe types...Luv Valita

TFS I have some wonderful shimmer paper made for punch flowers, but I never go ahead and shape them. You made it look so easy. Debbie

Thanks for your great instructions! I was at Archiver's a day ago and bought a new die made by Quick Kutz called "flowers" that has three different sizes of flowers on it. I think it looks very close to the Prima's.

Thanks for sharing your discovery! These are great! I tried making them out of handmade paper, mulberry and textured cardstock. Each one looked different but wonderful. Thanks again!

I spotted Valita's tutorial a while ago on her blog and have been making the flowers ever since. I often use off cuts from whatever I have put on the card e.g. trying Zindorffing I usually crop my finished image and sometimes use the edges to make matching flowers e.g. this one http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...&ppuser=172600

Wow ~ This is such a fabulous idea & tutorial!!! I have been searching high and low for the original style red Primas but I think they have stopped making them and the ones I do find aren't the right shade of red. Thanks so much for posting this!

What a great idea. I love the prima flowers, but hate spending the money on them and then never having the right color. I just need to find the time now
