Basic Flower Punch Art - Dahlia Flower using Circle punch

The Circle is one of the most versatile shapes, and with 8 - 9 circles of the same size and a bit of folding...
To make each petal, is simply a series of folds - check out the You Tube video below can fold a very pretty Dahlia. I have used the subltes DSP, the bird punch for the leaves, word window punch mounted on the modern label punched out in Garden Green. Pearls are once again used for the flower centre and as brads on the greeting.

Instructions on how to fold the Dahlia are on a number of You Tube videos - Dawn is one of my favourite demonstrators.  You can do the same fold with squares - looks great as well - I will add to this post when I get to do one for you.

Happy folding
