Jarvis / Technique by Wendy Smith


In the Jarvis Kit last month, we all received a section of dress pattern tissue paper, I I always like to use it in different ways on my layout. I saw Lisa used it as a ruffle on one of hers, and Kim incorporated it in her Lollipop flower. I used mine to create several layered scrunched flowers.

In this layout, I have layered the dress pattern flower amongst other embellishments on my page.


Here is how to make the flower.

1- Assemble your circle punches and folded dress pattern


2- Slide your folded paper through and punch out several layers of tissue paper


3- Repeat process with the smaller sized punch

4- layer your smaller circles on top of the later circles, and sew on a button to connect them all

5- scrunch the layers of dress pattern paper, and spread out as needed. There you have a unique flower for your layout!

I used them on several of my Jarvis layouts and left them plain, but for this layout I inked it with some Tim Holts Distress Ink. Glimmermist works well too!
