Here's the second of the two flower tutorials I produced as a pdf, which I have now brought over here. Well, it's nice to have them all together in one place.
The materials you need:
Plain Ivory Colour Card
Circle Dies: I’ve used Spellbinders Circles 23mm, 35mm and 48mm dia. i.e. the three smallest.
With the circle dies, cut out 1 large disc and 2 of each of the medium and small discs from the card. Spray with water to dampen.
Scrunch up tight, each of the circles.
Unfurl them and lay back out on your craft sheet. Give them another spray of water to keep damp.
Cup your hand and press each disc into it with your finger to create a bowl shape. The card is easy to manipulate whist damp, so tweak and pinch the edges with your fingers until you’re happy with it’s look.
With the two smallest circles, Pinch them into tighter, trumpet-style shapes.
Leave the pieces until they are bone dry. Use a heat gun to quicken up the process.
Use pva glue or similar and layer the flower together. Largest on the bottom, followed by the medium two & top with the smallest ones. Yes, it really is that easy to make.
If you don’t have the Spellbinders circle dies, don’t rush out immediately to buy a set. I use them for convenience but you can easily handcut out rough circles from the card using just a pair of scissors. Also, if you do already own similar dies of a circular shape, why not try them out instead. The flower above on the left was created with a scalloped circle set and the one on the right using the Blossom Nesties.
