TUTORIALS - SIX PETAL ROSE

Hello everyone!! What a gorgeous day!! Makes you think of lovely flowers so this tutorial seems very appropriate.

Our very own Di has just emailed me the instructions to make this beautiful 6 petal rose using the blue 2" Woodware flower punch. So sit back ..... relax .... read the instructions ..... and enjoy making this wonderful embellishment for your cards.


Gather your supplies together - you will need a six petal paper punch, PVA glue, ink pad, finger dauber, scissors, tweezers, pokey tool, glossy accents, paper or light-weight card i.e. Bazzill Basics


Start by punching out 3 flowers and ink the edges of the petals using the dauber (if the other side of your paper/card is white you can also ink that as well to give it some colour)


Fold each flower between the petals and crease with your fingers


Snip along the crease of one of the flower segments to the centre.  On the second flower snip out one whole segment.  The third flower snip out two segments


Spread a little PVA glue on a petal then overlap it on top of the one next to it.  Repeat this for each of the three large flowers


Take each flower segment and roll the petal outwards


Curl the two smaller segments of the petals inwards


Snip a bit of the centre points from each piece so the flower won't stack up like a pyramid


Dab some PVA glue around the second largest segment and set it into the largest.  Repeat with each one using tweezers to help position and let it dry


When flower is assembled and dry add some glossy accents to a few petals to make it look like dew


And here they are!!
3 finished flowers, assembled and added to a beautiful card - aren't they brilliant!!!
To make this card Di has used -
Caramello Cuttlebug Folder
Woodware Clear Stamp Set - Mary & Friends
Circle and Scallop Circle Nestabilities

Thanks so much Di for sharing your tutorial with us - we hope you all enjoy making them.
Don't forget you can make them bigger or smaller depending on the size of punch you use - you just need to remember to make sure it has 6 petals

  2. I only had a small six petal flower punch, but it worked wonderfully! I'm quite obsessed with making the paper roses now...

    These roses are gorgeous, I was at Di's class when we made these & my family were very impressed when I showed them. It's great that you have put this on as a tutorial.
