#79 Paper Flower Tutorial
Happy Friday everyone! If you are a friend on Facebook then you've probably seen this flowers that I made today. Here is my deatailed tutorial for them enjoy!
Step 1,2- Cut 8 Scallop circle shapes for each color at 2.53 in. with Gypsy. The flower is on the top left part of your Gypsy keypad Shift/Shadow key functions. I got 12 flowers total on one 8.5x11 inch white cardstock. To make all 6 flowers I needed 3 total sheets of white cardstock. Ink around the edges.
Step 3- Spray all flowers with water and rub the water all over the flower, you want it to be very damp.
Step 4- Crumble like trash!
Step 5- Uncrumble and lay flat.
Step 6- Stack all 8 flowers on top of eachother.
Step 7- Punch a hole with Crop A Dile, I punched all 8 at the same time
Step 8- Place any color brad in center, you won't actually see the brad in the end.
Step 9-Crumble each flower layer upwards around the brad.
Step 10- After crumbling all layers upwards around brad it should look like this, then "Smoosh" it all together in your hands to look like this.
Step 11- Spray with Glimmer Mist, Let dry for 5 Minutes!!
Step 12- Time for the flower to Bloom! Uncrumble as many layers as you want slowly.The Glimmer mist should be dry but the flower will still be damp from the water.
Here's a side view of the the flower.
The flower is over an inch in height
