Dahlia Cross

For Easter, I wanted to share this beautiful card with a folded cross made by Teresa Goff.


Teresa inspired me to make this card for my stamp clubs. I changed up the colors to fit the paper and brads that I had. :)


Supply List
Taken with Teal Cardstock: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2"
Chocolate Chip Cardstock: 3 3/8 x 4 1/4"
Confetti White Cardstock: 3 1/8 x 3 3/4"
Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper: Three 1 1/4" circles, One 1 3/4" circle
Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set
Scallop Trim Border Punch
Modern Label Punch
Word Window Punch
1 1/4" Circle Punch
1 3/4" Circle Punch
Square Ice Rhinestone Brad

To make the cross, fold each circle using these instructions. Then assemble to form the cross and place the rhinestone in the center.

Step 1
Punch out the circle.


Step 2
Fold the circle in half.


Step 3
Open the circle and fold in half in the opposite direction.


Step 4
Fold two wings. Each one goes from the center fold to the edge of each side.


Step 5
Turn the circle over so the opposite side is facing up.


Step 6
Fold each straight edge to the center fold.


Here is a card with the dahlia fold flower. It's made with 8 circles using the 1 3/4" circle punch.


I hope you enjoy making the dahlia fold crosses and flowers.

Creatively yours,
