Crisscross Flower Tutorial

With the Picnic Kit finally on its way, it's time to start dreaming up what you'll do with this happy collection. Tricia's first layout featured a handmade crisscross flower embellishment she was inspired to make after seeing a pre-manufactured version in the craft store.

Layout with Club Scrap's Picnic Collection
Follow these simple steps to create your own crisscross flowers.

1. Cut four 1/2x3-1/2" paper strips. Place adhesive onto the center of each strip.

2. Fold outside edges to the center to form a paper loop.

3. Repeat for all remaining strips.

4. Adhere two strips in a crisscross fashion.

5. Adhere the two remaining strips in an angled crisscross pattern.

6. Place a Sticky Back Gem in the center of the flower.

7. Embellish your pages and cards with the completed flowers.

Change the length and width of the strips to alter the size.

Crisscross flower made with 1/4x2-1/2" paper strips.
For this greeting card, I colored and stamped on plain white strips prior to assembly.

The next time you're in the mood to spruce up a page or card, I hope you'll give these cute crisscross flowers a try!

Thank you for stopping by,
