You can buy these paper punches for $35 to make a folded paper flower. Or, you can just download my freebies if you want the digital alternative! I created a folded paper overlay using Filter Forge filters and placed the overlay over some basic shapes (hearts, ovals, circles, etc). I duplicated the basic shapes using Mura's copies filter (encircle) and then added drop shadows, rotated and duplicated layers, etc. to obtain the look of some folded paper flowers. There are 8 grey flowers in this set for you to add your favorite color, pattern or background paper to! You like em? Let me know!

Tonight's freebie is something a little different. I had an idea to make some digital flowers that look like they have been made from folded paper. I was inspired by an item in a traditional scrapbook catalog that I received in the mail the other day. I must be on a million scrapbook mailing lists because I get so much mail related to scrapbooking. Which is fine but I have never paper scrapped in my life. Here is a photo of what I was trying to achieve:
