The Paper Girls Challenge Blog Hop


 Welcome to our third blog hop for the Paper Girls Challenge blog! You should have arrived from Charity's blog. If not start at the beginning at The Paper Girls Challenge and make sure you comment on each blog for an entry for the prize.


 Our theme is handmade flowers for the blog hop. I made these springy flowers out of a star punch. I love using various punches to make flowers. I've never used my star punch though so I thought it would be fun to try out! Below is a little graphic I put together to show my method.
