Over the next couple weeks I will be introducing you to my new 3D Flowers! Yes, I said "weeks"...I have 12 more coming after this weeks release! These flowers are all sizable to fit your needs and will all be compatible with the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.
I am going to start off with my Rolled Rose Flower!
Here is the tutorial:
1. Cut out all the pieces and pinch the leaves on the score lines. Ink around the edges if desired.
2. Use a pencil or skewer to roll the petals on the flowers in all different directions.
3. Your pieces should look similar to this now.
4. Starting with the single petal, wrap it around the skewer as shown.
5. Place adhesive on the 2-petal piece...
6. Then wrap the 2-petal piece around the single petal form.
7. With the larger petal pieces, place hot glue or a strong adhesive on one side of the open petal, then join the open petals together to form a tiny cone shape.
8. Your flowers should look like this now.
9. Adhere the petals together in the center, starting with the largest, going into the smallest.
10-12. Continue adding in the layers until all pieces are in. Note: you will have to bend the small center a bit to get it to sit inside the rose.
13. Turn your rose over...
14. Place adhesive around the circle of the leaf
15. Then adhere it to the bottom of the rose.
16. Do the same for the second leaf set.
17. Turn your rose back over and it should look similar to this now!
My second rose is easier to assemble but has more of a Queen Anne shape to it.
Here is the tutorial:
1. Cut out all the pieces and pinch the leaves on the score lines. Ink around the edges of the flower pieces if desired.
2. Use a pencil or skewer to roll the petals on the flowers in all different directions. For the smallest piece, wad up the petals and squish them together. This will be the center of the flower.
3. Adhere the center of the flower into the next smallest shape...
4. Scrunch the flower up as shown.
5-8. Adhere it in the next size flower shape and scrunch it up...continue doing this until all flower pieces are in place.
9. Fluff out the layers a little to get your desired shape.
10. Adhere the leaf pieces to the bottom to finish.
