At the workshop this past Saturday, several of you asked for the instructions on how I made flowers from used books.
What I did was I took two thick books and cut apart the pages inside using an x-acto knife. I then cut the pages into the square needed for the instructions. I then followed these instructions. It takes 6 petals per flower. At the end, I took watercolor paint and added just a touch of paint inside each petal and then at the top to add a little color. The rest of the flower I left open so the words on the paper show. (Brenda Lemon)
