Glorious Flowers


Authentique Paper and Want2Scrap are teaming up this week to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper and Want2Scrap products!



After you check out the projects here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to head on over to the Want2Scrap blog to find out what the talented members of their Design Team have in store for you today! 

********** 

My favorite summer flowers are dahlias. I love their layers of petals and bright colors. And with July 4th coming, I was inspired to create some special dahlias of my own.


I used papers from Authentique's "Glory" collection to make oversized flowers - I accordian-folded strips of paper, attached them together and formed them into circles. Want2Scrap's "Nestaboards" and matching "Nestabling" came together to create the flowers' centers. I covered the "Nestaboards" with more pieces from "Glory",  sanded the edges and embellished with the bling!
