Step 1: Choose Your Flower Design
Before you start cutting out flowers from your scrapbooking paper, you'll need to choose a design that you like. You can find inspiration from online tutorials, craft books, or by sketching out your own flower shapes. Rachel has cut her flowers from our Hit the Books Paper.
Step 2: Cut Out Your Flowers

Step 3: Arrange Your Flowers
Once you've cut out your flowers, arrange them on your scrapbooking layout paper. Play around with the placement of the flowers until you find a design that you like. You can use different colors and patterns to create a dynamic and eye-catching layout.

With your flowers arranged in the way you like, it's time to adhere them to your scrapbooking layout paper. You can use adhesive tape or glue to attach the flowers to the paper. Be sure to apply adhesiveto the center of the flowers and not the edges, so that the petals have room to lift off the page.
Step 5: Add Details
To finish off your scrapbooking layout, you can add details to your flowers, such as stamens, centers, or even glitter. You can also add additional embellishments, such as stickers, die-cuts, or stamps, to complete your design.
In conclusion, hand-cutting flowers from scrapbooking paper is a simple and fun way to create beautiful layouts. By choosing your flower design, cutting out your flowers, arranging them, adhering them to your layout paper, and adding details, you can create a stunning scrapbooking page that celebrates your memories and love of flowers.
