flower tutorial using the hc flora grande precut sets

hello scrappy friends!

as i promised i'm sharing a little tutorial on how i made the big blossom for my latest hearfelt creations.



here is a list of what you will need to make such flowers:
brown ink pad
stickles diamond glitter glue
pearl brads
3d foam tape
double sided adhesive tape

step 1: stamps one of each of the 4 different floral designs {i didn't use the biggest stamp for this blossom}; 3 of them should be on pink pattern paper and the largest one - on brownish pattern paper; cut them out and separate the individual petals;


step 2: curl the petals down {i used my pencil for the large flowers and a barbecue stick for the smaller ones - i'm sure that there are better tools, but just didn't have anything at home}; your petals will look like this when you are done shaping them: 

step 3: turn your flowers around and start attaching the double sided adhesive tape {one small piece in the middle} and the 3d foam squares under the petals; add two-three layers of foam tape under the petals, if necessary, to achieve the desired dimension; 

step 4: take your pearl brad, push it through the hole in the florals center and attach it on the back side; you blossom should look like this now: 



step 5: add some glitter glue and your flower is complete!


the whole process doesn't take more than 10 minutes and the effect is stunning!


i hope this tutorial was useful to you!


keep creating!

Great tutorial! I haven's made any flowers yet (I have been too busy using my Copic markers) so I am trying to get ideas on how you ladies make such beautiful flowers. Thanks!
