Begonia and Gardenia 3D Paper Flowers

Are you guys enjoying all the flowers this week?  I sure hope so as I have at least 12 more coming your way starting Monday!  These are the last of this weeks flower tutorials (and two of my favorites of the week)!

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 skewer (or pencil) to bend the petals of each flower, pinching them in the center around the skewer.  
3-10.  Start with the largest flower working your way to the smallest...adhere the centers together with foam adhesive, staggering the petals.
11.  Place a gem|jewel in the center of the smallest petals and adhere the leaf pieces to the bottom of the flower!




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.  Adhere the center piece inside the smallest flower form, bending the pieces up so your center looks like this now.
3.  Squish the small flower form together so it looks similar to this.  This will be the center of the flower.
4.  Adhere the center piece into the next size flower.
5.  Squish it around the center piece so it is similar to this image.
6.  Adhere it in the center of the last flower form.
7.  Bend the edges up so it looks similar to this image now.
8.  Use a skewer (or pencil) to bend the petals of each flower.
9-12.  Start with the largest flower working your way to the smallest...adhere the centers together and stagger the petals.
13.  Adhere your leaf pieces together then adhere the leaf to the bottom of the flower.
14.  Adhere your center in the flower and your flower should look like this now!

Those are some awesome looking gardenias! I would love to have a patch of actual ones at our house. I've heard that you can actually eat them. Thiago | http://highcampsupply.com/
