today I am doing my first EVER online tutorial...
so bare with me :)
yesterday I posted a cute pic of 2 types of flowers
that I made.This is the tutorial for the purple one....
all you need is a
glue or glue dots,
2 colors of cardstock (Thick cardstock is best,,,thin stuff rips)
and some water (in a mister works best)
Here we go.........
Using a daisy punch,
Punch out 5 coloured flowers and 1 green flower for the leaves...
Using your mini mister filled with water/ or spray bottle. Spray a SMALL
amount of water in the center area of the flower.
With your fingers work the water from the center to the edge of each petal....only a small amount is to be used...to much will tear paper...so easy does it....
Place the petal to be worked on onto a foam craft mat, old mouse pad....something soft and has some give...very important step
With the rounded end of a pen or embossing tool rub the petals from petal edge into the center .Do each petal until they curl upward...
With the end of the pen or embossing tool rub the center area of the flower in circular motions until it curves/cups...
Using your fingers form the flower into a small ball with the petals curled in toward the center.Do all 5 coloured flowers like this.
Once you have all 5 flowers done...loosen each up a bit then assemble .alternate/stagger the petals.
I glue them between layers with Aleene's fast grab tacky glue...it works very fast...so you need to as well
Once all 5 layers are in place ,glue on the very back your leaf/green flower...
Fluff up as needed...
Ta da you did it...not so hard is it....
(I first saw this tutorial online at www.scrapjackie.com/br ...this is my version of that tutorial using my words and photos)
I hope you have fun making your own....
Please let me know what you think of the tutorial .It is my first one and I need feedback on anything that needed to be done differently..
