your requirements are:
Circle punch, Versa mark ink or similar, old book or patterned paper, sewing machine or needle & thread
My circles are punched using a Marvy scalloped punch & measure 3" across,
and I bought an old dictionary from charity store for 50 cents.. what a bargain !!!!
step 1. punch out 15 circles,
Step 2. Ink all edges of circles on both sides
Step 3. Fold 1 circle in half, then fold the other 2 so the lower edge of each is visible when fitted together, repeat to make 4 ruffles in total.
Step 4. For the flower, crumple remaining 3 circles, stack together, hold in place with a brad or stitch a button as flower centre.
Step 5. Open out the ruffles, position on background paper where you desire your banner & stitch in place by machine or hand along fold line
Step 6. Fold top ruffles down and crumple edges
Step 7. Create your LO how desired, I have distressed & inked all edges, added some inked chipboard embellishments, tied string through the ruffles, knotting in between each one,
Step 8. Position flower and adhere in place
Step 9. Tah dah … all done....
I had fun playing with this technique & I hope I've inspired you to do the same
