I have just started doing scrapbooking and I have been trying to figure out what punches to use to make the layered flowers. The flowers I am talking about look like they have 6-7 layers to them.

I think she may be asking specifically what punches to use to make the flowers to stack.

I would just purchase punches of different sizes and then layer them. They don't have to be the same shape. One very popular punch on this site is the Ek Success Retro flower punch - it's available in two sizes. You can change the way the flower look by using paper edges on the end of the petals! Good luck.

Holly you crack me up! You can also make those by just cutting out rough circle shapes. The circles, since the are going to be distressed anyway, don't need to start as perfect circles.

Has anyone done 3D flowers with layering of different punches? I would love to see how it turned up.

Nope,,,but I bought Storybook for my Cricut today and I've spent all day making layered flowers with that,,,,

by cutting different sizes and using shadow for some and not for other layers and then layering them and using brads to hold them together, I got the same type look,,,,

very pretty
