Christine's Awesome Friday Tutorial
Hi everyone! I am so glad to be back for this Fridays tutorial. My computer crashed and I had to order another one. I finally received it Tuesday. Then Had to take it to get it started up. I have missed all my crafting buddies this last week and half. So here we go for our tutorial.
I seen this done with a Stamping Up Kit. Since I do not belong to Stamping Up, I thought of a way to do this flower. So here we go.
Sweet Treats Circut Cartridge
Off White Paper
Distressing Ink I used Faded Jeans
Something to punch a hole
Take your off white paper and place on the circut sticky sheet. Then place the sheet in the cutter and cut 8 scalloped flowers.
Take your 8 flower shapes off the sticky sheet and put on the glass.
Now distress with you Faded Jeans Ink around the edges of the flower.
Take your water bottle an spray your inked flower shapes so they will be wet.
Take your flower shapes and pinch the shapes together with your fingers.
Take your pieces of rolled up flowers and undo them.
Take all your pieces and stack them up on top of each other.
Take something to punch a hole in the center of the flower shapes for your brad.
Taking one layer at time gather the flower shape up toward the center. Continue this until you have all the layers gathered up.
The last step is to pull the layers apart slightly apart. This will dry in a flower.
Isn't this an awesome handmade flower. I think you could use a flower punch to get the same effect. Hope this helps you on some flower embellishments.
