Handmade Flower Tutorial

Handmade Flower Tutorial

I thought id do this tutorial as i know a few crafters have asked how i make my flowers so here goes....my 1st ever tutorial..please bare with me!!


If you would like to make a flower just like this please carry on reading!!


These are the items you will need to make a flower,

1) Scraps of paper & card 
2)  Water spritzer
3) Pokie tool
4) Scissors
5) Brad

Also you could use your Nesties or even punches to make this flower...its up to you!!


 You need to cut 6 circle's out of the scraps of paper & card...don't worry about them being perfectly round as that adds to the effect!!
You will need 2 large, 2 medium & 2 small.


Then you spritz water onto the circles....just like the photo!
You want them damp but not soggy as you don't want them to rip!


You crumple the circles up as tight as you can get them as this is where you get the crinkles from!



Carefully unfold them as you don't want them to tear & then layer them on top of each...just like the photo!
(don't worry if the aren't perfectly on top of each other as this also adds to the effect)

Then you need to poke an hole through all of the layers and put the brad through...then fasten the brad in place.

Start to lift each layer up towards the middle...nip the paper & card here and there, to make them looks like lots of gathered up petals...keep doing this till you are happy with it!

Your flower at the end should look like this! Let the flower dry before putting onto your card...you find you flower will harden and stay in shape.


This is what the flower looks like on a card!

Hope this tutorial helps you make a flower just like mine but please don't hesitate to ask any questions...you can leave a message here or email me on addy provided at the top of my blog.

Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave!
