My Scrapgal Tutorial: Using Homemade Flower Stencils

*As seen over on the Scrapgal blog today :)
I actually made these flower stencils out of chipboard a few years back when I taught a class on adding a variety of flowers to your layouts. I find they come in handy quite often whenever I want to craft a floral embellishment that goes perfectly with the papers I am using on a layout.


I have three different sizes that I literally had drawn and hand cut as you see in the photo above. Sometimes I use them to layer each other or just alone. For my layout I used the middle size and smaller flowers.



I chose the patterned papers I wanted to use, flipped it over and traced my flowers. I then cut them out by hand.


Two flowers ready to be embellished.



I decided to go simple with a Sassafras Lass button embellishment already stitched on. And a regular button tied with baker's twine.



Then added them to my layout! Simple :)
