Paper Flower Tutorial.

Hello my friends! I hope you are having a great day. My days after surgery have been with up and downs. After surgery I got really sick (I've never felt that sick in my life), then I got fever pretty much every day, after resting and doing nothing, I am feeling much better and trying to be back on my regular daily things.

Now, thanks to all of you who requested a tutorial of my Paper Flowers. I have to be honest with you. I don't do tutorials because English is not my first language and sometimes I don't know the exact words I want to use, but this time my husband helped me a little bit, so I hope this helps and if you have any questions, please leave a comment here and I will try to answer ASAP.

Materials you may need:
  • Scallop circles, plain circles. You can die cut using Nestabilities or punches or even you can draw your own style:)
  • Fine Glitter (I am using Martha Stewart)
  • Diamond Glaze (Liquid Applique, or any nice glue)
  • Distress Ink (Opt)
  • Embellishments: Buttons, Pearls, Rhinestones, etc (any you like to put in the center of your flower)
  • Other: Sponges, Paint brush, wipes (to clean up)

1.- Your basic materials:

 2.- Scallop circle and 2 circle in different sizes.
 3.- Crinkle your card stock until it gets really soft.
 4.- Open them up and start splitting the borders.
5.- Split the borders, keeping the center attach to the base of your card stock.

 6.- Your final result should look like this. Avoid to split the whole piece, remember: do only the borders.
 7.- Apply distress ink in all the borders of your card stock.
 8.- In this flowers I used Shimmerz Paint, apply it only on the borders using a paint brush.
9.- This is a little variation, instead of Shimmerz I used Diamond Glaze and Glitter.
10.- Apply the Diamond Glaze on the borders. Be careful not to glue with the other piece.
 11.- Apply glitter. Shake the excess.
 12.- Apply glitter to the other pieces.
 13.-  Final results. Red flowers is the one I used Shimmerz paint and the pink/purple is the one with Glitter.

Hope this helps you and you can start making your own flowers.!

Here are some card I made using my paper flowers:

Thanks so much!

Have a great day!!

PS: My daughter lost her 3rd tooth yesterday. She is extremely happy and wants to show you her new smile :)
