Making your own flowers is an easy way to use up your patterned paper supplies. It's quick and easy to do. For this layout, I simply cut and folded small circles from a sheet of doublesided patterned paper. I then handstitched them to the page. I used a hole punch to create smaller flowers with orange centers.
