I made the sweetest little bouquet of flowers for my friend Vicki. The whole thing isn't but maybe 6"-7" long.
I wrapped them in tissue paper and brown Kraft paper just like real flowers.
Below I will show you how I made a few of the flowers.
This one started with the Blossom Bunch punch, I believe it was the middle size flower. Punch five flowers. Use one for the base and scrunch the other 4 and hot glue on top.
This one is the Pansy Punch. Punch 4-5 flowers and cut as shown above. Curl the smallest one that is for the center around a skewer to get it nice and tight. I think midway through I decided to add one more layer near the center.
This one started with a strip of cardstock about 4" long. I cut it all along the length with scissors and carefully curled it with the bone folder. Start rolling it up, in a spiral type movement so it comes out in different heights.
The leaves are hand cut with no pattern. Curl them with a bone folder and hot glue it together to the flowers.
I used the Flower Medallion punch for leaves, I just started cutting it apart and gluing them to wire. Put the bouquet together and twist all the wires tight.
Pretty cute, huh! Too bad the picture doesn't really show the scale of the bouquet. It literally fits in the palm of your hand.
