CTMH Twitterpated Paper Flower Embellishment

I love this paper flower technique. For anyone that hasn't tried it: Punch two circles, one slightly smaller than the other. Crinkle each of the paper circles into a tiny ball. Then unroll the ball, smooth out the paper, and sand the creases using a medium sandpaper. (Another option is to use distressing ink to ink the creases in the paper). Sanding or inking will both add dimension to your flower. Then simply layer your circles and add a button or brad in the center & adhere. An inexpensive, but super cute embellishment!
