Question I need help!

I am new to stamping and I only have the brights collection of paper and the brights collection of small ink pads, as well as the Basic Black ink pad. I have the basic words for cards, (i.e. good luck, thanks, happy birthday, handmade by, e.t.c.). I want to make some flowers. Anybody know how?

It depends on the flower you are trying to make. Many people just stamp a flower image and color it and then cut it out. You can buy a variety of flower stamp images. If you own any simple punches, you can punch out shapes and piece them together and put a pretty brad in the center to make a flower. There are also flower punches you can buy.

There is a way to take a square piece of paper and fold it in half twice and then cut a tear drop or rain drop shape (do not cut where the point is) and when you open it, you have a flower. cut several out and then layer them.

You can make a flower with a pipe cleaner. If you have any pattern paper with flowers on it, you can fussy cut out some of the flowers. Or you can buy paper flowers at any craft store.

I forgot you can make flowers out of ribbon.

Also, if you clicon on resources at the top you can search for different techniques. Here I did a search on flower:

Question Youtube videos!

Just go to youtube.com and search for "paper flowers" - you will find many to choose from!
