Faux Cosmos - Paper Flower

4 Materials
20 Minutes

Thank you Hometalk for my Amazon gift card. I used it to purchase my latest paper punch so I could dabble into the world of paper crafting once again.

So for this project I used my new paper punches (the black ones) ended up NOT using the green punch. Also pictured is a piece of wrapped wire, a twig from my garden and a small strip of yellow cardstock that you will see more about later.

so the first thing I did was attach the leaves (not necessarily a cosmos leaf) to my twig. I am so lucky that I have a white birch tree in my front yard that is more than happy to produce a constant supply of the perfect twigs.

Now to the blossoms...I only needed one punched cosmos shape for this flower.

Next to create the feathery center, I took the 2-3" x1/4" piece of yellow cardstock and fringed it from one end to the other and with a dot of glue attached it to a small length of wrapped floral wire. Completely wrapping it around the wire.

with a dot of hot glue, add the fringed center to the inside of the petals

The final step is to attach the blossom to the stem (twig), which I did with a dollop of hot glue. Hold the flower in place until the glue cools.

Happy paper crafting everyone
