Accordian flower

Good Morning,
I just can't have enough of these pizza boxes.  They are so darling cute. I've made so many of them.  Today beside sharing the pizza boxes, I wanted to share with you how I made my accordion flowers.
Here it is.  You will need  2" x 6" pattern paper.  I used the scallop edge punch and punched out the edge of my 2 x 6 on both end. Make sure that the scallops are lining up on both end.  This way I don't need to make the score line.  The scallop edges will guide me as the score lines.
 
 Fold a long the scallop edge like this.
 
Apply adhesive and pinch it close.
 
 Repeat the other side.
 
Punch a small flower and use medium glue dot to hold the flower together like this.
 
Here are a few more.
 
Hope you enjoy today's post.  Thank you for visiting me today.  Have a wonderful weekend.

Helen
