Happy Friday, Folks! With all the leaves flying around and no more pretty blooms outside, I needed to create some paper flowers to end the week. I thought I’d challenge myself by creating flowers with simple shapes (like my heart inspiration). Today’s focus is on the diamond. I used the Polygon tool in Silhouette Studio to create the basic shape, then rotated copies. Added a little circle in the middle for the string, cut on cardstock, et voila! Want to join in the paper flower action?

3. Rotate copies (I copied 3) using the Replicate tool. Add a circle big enough for your hole punch

4. Select them all and weld. Make copies on your cut area, then send to cut using cardstock settings.
