{Flower card tutorial}

Ok If you downloaded the last 2 weeks worth of Freebie Friday images.....then Here is FINALLY the tutorial on how to use it. Big Shout-Out to MyMemories for their help in providing these images and directions. These are easy, I just had trouble putting the post together.....mama-brain I guess. So here it is, really super simple!

Flower Card Tutorial
How to Assemble your Flower Card

1.  Print your file on cardstock.

2.  Take your card template page and fold at all fold lines.  A bone folder helps make the creases nie and crisp to help your finished card to look nicer.

3.  There should be a total of 9 folds when you are done.

4.  Cut out your card.

5.  Turn your card over so that the printed side is down and
 pinch the sides of each petal together until all 6 petals are
standing straight up.

6.  Gently push all the petals in one direction until they lay flat.

7.  You now have a flower card.

8.  Tie a ribbon (not included) or something equivalent
around the card to hold it closed.

9.  Embellish as desired.  This card was embellished with a
circle cut out from a piece of background paper.
