LOVE THESE FLOWERS! See this is what I'm talking about. I too love making my own flowers, they are sooooo much better than the flowers your buy because to me they are just so generic anymore.

Absolutely gorgeous thanks for sharing how to do this,sadly I can't buy PTI over here in England so will just have to make them with nesties instead.

Ooh these are GORGEOUS Betsy!! I have just placed an order so was hoping when I read it that you'd used die #2 because the others had sold out!!

What a fabulous tutorial...thank you! I've been making flowers out of scalloped punches and just "scrunching." The folding really adds extra impact, and is actually a little easier. Great job!
