I hope everyone's new year is starting off good! My family and I have been battling the Flu for the last couple of weeks. I'm just now starting to get my voice back. In between the kids being sick I manage to do a fun flower tutorial that "everyone" can do! These are great flowers to add to any project that you are working on.
What you will need:
-Small five petal punch
(I used my daughter's American Girl punch)
-Cardstock (at least 65lb. weight)
Punch out several little flowers
Take your chalk and shade a small area in the center.
After you finish shading the centers of the flowers, you will need to cup them up a bit.
Place them on the mat, make sure you have the side that you shaded facing up.
Then apply a small amount of pressure while embossing the center.
You will need to make a hole in the center to run your stamen through. I used a small needle. Please keep in mind not to make your hole too big, your stamen will fall out if it's too large.
Apply a small bead of glue to the back of the stamen head to hold it in place.
These are my favorite to make! These flowers are great for small and large projects!
I used these below to dress up one of my small 2" x 2" envelopes.
I hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial.
