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
