A Million Memories Blog Hop

Welcome to the A Million Memories blog hop! The hop starts today, Friday July 2 and runs through Sunday July 4. Each blog will be showcasing a different project inspired by summer and all of it's glory! Hop through each blog to check out the instructions for creating each project, then choose a project to re-create. Post your project in the AMM gallery and in this thread. You will have until Friday July 9th at midnight to post your project to be eligible to win the Echo Park Collection Pack. More than one project created earns you another chance in the random drawing. Please be sure that projects are created especially for this contest. Good luck!

For my tutorial I will be giving you instructions on how to make these loopy 3 dimensional flowers.


Step 1) Cut 5 strips of double sided paper that measure 1/4"x 5".


(these are all the same paper, I am just showing the two sides)

Step 2) Make a loop and bring the ends almost together, leaving a little tag on one of the ends that can be folded over.



Step 3) Glue the both ends down and continue to do the same to the four remaining pieces. 



Step 4) Adhere all five pieces to a piece of coordinating paper.



Step 5) Trim all 5 petals out.



Step 6) Arrange on card or layout to make a flower. My plan was originally to make a full flower, however 5 petals just wasn't enough and looked too sparse. So, I opted to make a flower "bud".
In other words, you'll need more petals for a full in bloom circular flower...I would suggest 9-10.



Just a note, all papers and the sentiment sticker that were used on this card are from the collection pack you could be eligible to win if you participate. Thank you to Echo Park. Love this new company!
