Pleated Flowers by Claudia Rosa

  Hello, welcome to the Whiff Of Joy Inspiration blog. My name is Claudia and today i would love to show you a quick and easy embellishment, which you can make from your paper scraps.Claudia_Rosa_Foryou
You will need:
scoring tool (Scor-pal)
Glue dots and double sided tape
My card sample shows Whiff Of Joys Strawberry girl by Norma Fickel
Strawberry embellishment is also from Whiff of Joy
Papers are from Graphic 45 and Webster pages 
Claudia_Rosa_Foryou_1 You want to have two stripes of Design Paper cut to the same with. Remember if you cut your Design Paper to 1” by example your finished flower will be twice the size.

Score both stripes of paper using a scoring tool in equal intervals - all the way to the end. I scored mine so the valleys and the mountains are going to be small, every half inch on the scor-pal.
fold your paper stripes
This is how both look like after i have finished folding them
5 add some sticky tape to both ends and adhere the stripes together so the valleys and mountains match up6 ends taped together
7 Place a glue dot in the center
8 and simply push with your fingers the paper to the inside, closing the circle
9 add a generous amount of sticky tape to the back so it will hold in place and you can use this to add the element to your project or card.
13 finish your embellishment with buttons, prima flowers or with a circular sentiment stamped and cut out with punches in the center of your flower. 14Claudia_Rosa_Foryou_3
