I'm accumulating quite a pile of papers, and I always planned on doing some sort of collage with them someday. But, so far, I haven't really had any ideas of what sort of collage to do. I look at other's work online, and that is inspiring, but when it comes to thinking up my own ideas, I just don't know where to start.
Over the weekend, I ran across some youtube videos showing how to make paper flowers, and butterflies, and I was so excited to try it!
Here is my little flower shape and the paper I cut from..

...then I coated them on both sides with some watered down white glue. Each flower takes 3 of the shapes.. then you carefully cut and shape them, and hot glue them one inside the other.
I made 3 flowers and one butterfly. The butterfly is made from a piece of decorated scrapbook paper. It was so fun!! I suppose I could use them to decorate a package, or who knows what else :)
