I've created some mini carnations and bordered the top bodice of the paper corset. While they look time consuming they really aren't. Just a matter of finding the time to doodle with the paper while you're at the Dr., in carpool are any other place you can just sit and relax.
The paper corset is from the April PCS issue, "Make Mine Vintage". Would this make a great Bridal Shower favor? It's a little more frisky making one to give your sweetheart stuffed with goodies for Valentine's Day or an Anniversary.
These paper carnations are done very similar to the larger version using the scallop circle punch. See my 2009 "Scallop Flower Bouquet" for directions. The only difference is there's not wire.
