Here is the link to the best grungepaper flower demonstration I've come across.

http://theartisticstamper.blogspo.../2009/06/grungepaper-flowers.html

You can make then in grungepaper, paperstock or textile (my denim flower was based on the same principle)

During the lull after our Friendship Supper last night I tore some "squares" from the tablecloth and made a scrunchy flower.  

Didn't have any glue or brads or such so screwed up some scraps into a little ball, then folded them into a twist of more scrap to make like a hollylhock centre, then made a hole in the middle of the "flower" with the point of a biro and pushed the centre through with the point extending like a small stem from below the flower.

My flower was much admired and I ended up making a few.

Before anyone cries "vandalism" the tablecloth was actually bangueting roll and we were only going to tear it off the tables and bin it anyway.

Very Happy   Love it!  I do it all the time  Smile Now I'm on the lookout for some lovely textile ones - do you think they'll miss a square  Laughing

I came back from Switzerland with a load of cheese wrappers (knicked from the local cheesery), sweetie and chocolate papers and a lovely swiss chocolate box which I'm waiting for hubby to finish the chocolates.  He'd better not have his eye on the box!

Brilliant idea Jennie - will have to remember to save interesting wrappers.   Laughing   I love the way the flowers change according to the different textures used.  Laughing
