Simple Stories and Scor-Pal

Back when accordion flowers became the rage I tried to make them. Mine were dreadful. I was too impatient to fold evenly and definitely too impatient to fold thin enough to make them look really good. I still liked the look of them, but I gave up attempting to make them. Then I was introduced to a Scor-Pal and my woe is me days were over! Now I love making accordion flowers all over the place!

For this layout I used 1 inch strips of Simple Stories Vintage Bliss and scored them at every quarter of an inch.

I folded them along all the scored  lines and adhered the edges together.

I pressed them onto adhesive and added buttons for the centers.

And the outcome? Quick and simple handmade embellishments that would cost me a fortune if I had to buy them premade!  My Scor Pal will be getting LOTS of use!
