No Frustration Tearing
If you love the look of shabby flowers/roses etc. but are like me and would take half an hour to tear a kind of a circle shape this video post is for you.
This technique can be used for any size circle. I use it to make large circles too, oval circles or any other shape to use as frayed frames etc. Makes great edges for backing lace paper doilies too.
Also tips on how to color edges of these flowers without inking, a real timesaver that gives a great softer look to flower edges.
Some of the best tips I learned from scrapbook creators is how to get great torn and frayed edges, how to tear a shape out of the centers of paper etc. and get the edge you want every time, use it to curl or shape other edges too, as seen in my herbal garden shabby tag.
I have found myself in need of more flower ephemera, I use these types of flowers a lot on cards, tags and other paper projects and they are quick and easy to make.
I hope they inspire you to start making some shabby flowers or look for similar variations on Pinterest.
