Tuesday Tip – Making 3D flowers

August 3, 2010

I love flowers, don’t you?

I also love to make my own flowers, which is both fun and feels a bit economic. I thought I´d show you my favorite kind of homemade flower.   For this, you will either need a digital cutter and a digital flower die, or four sizes of the Retro flower punch. I´ve used my Gazelle to cut these flowers.


You will also need a little water, a thin stick or a small paint brush, glue or glue dots of your choice (I can strongly recommend Kaisercraft, I just discovered how much better they are then the regular ones you get here in the shops).


I used the Carousel paper (P540) from the Up, Up and away collection for this flower. If you use thicker papers you might find it easier to slightly moist with water using your fingertips.


Now curl the petals around the stick or the thin end of your paint brush, do on al the petals and al the flowers.


This is how it looks when you are finished. Now just glue all the flowers together with glue dots. I have used  rhinestones Split pea (RS407) to make the center of the flower.
