Fancy Flower Tutorial - Rose



Ola!!! Would you like to make these lovely flowers??? Who wouldn't? Yup, it's another tutorial and it's free for you. I found these flowers in Stampin Connection and I just had to try making one.... but I couldn't stop...before you proceed to this tutorial... BEWARE.... you might get addicted... mwahahaha !!!



Ok, seriously... before you read along... I'm warning you..... PREPARE TO BE ADDICTED!!!

Ok, you will need the following Supplies, (most of these supplies):

-XL Fancy Flower Punch (use to cut out the petals of the flower)#118073 p.11 (OMC)
-Large Oval Punch (use to cut out your leaves)#107305 p.186 (IBC)
-Stamping Mist (to spray onto your CS) #102394 p.190
-Sponge (for sponging, of course) #101610 p.192
-Bone Folder (no worries, it's not made of real bone... i think) #102300 p.188
-Piercing Tool (no Piercing... just curling) #116631 p.191
-Adhering supplies ( I used hot glue gun so it sticks faster, no hassle, no waiting, but burning involved-- just kidding, just be careful) or you may use Tombow Multi Purpose adhesive #110755 or crystal effects glue #101055 p.192



STEP 1: Crimping and Flattening and Spritzing and Punching (singing to the Sound of Music's My Favorite things)





Crimp your Cardstock, then flatten your CS with your Bone Folder, then spray with your Stampin Mist (your flowers will smell like freesia...mmm. Spritzing moistens your cardstock for easier handling and curling). Then punch out 3 XL Fancy Flower cardstock.

STEP 2:
Then cut out the flower pieces as illustrated. You'll have 5 pieces altogether.



STEP 3: Glue the ends together as illustrated... like cones. You'll have a 2-petal cone, 3-petal cone, 4 and 5 petal cones.



...then snip the tip ends of the pieces



STEP 4: CURLING - start with the center piece (on the one petal cut). Curl on the sides and on the tip, like illustrated.




STEP 5: ADHERING - Glue the tip of the center petal and slip it through the 2 petal cone, then to the 3 petal cone, then to the 4 petal cone, until you have a flower.




STEP 6: CURLING - The most important part to make your flowers look real!!! Remember to have your Cardstock still moist so it's easier to curl them outward.



VOILA!!! YOU HAVE YOUR BEAUTIFUL FLOWER. Now, do you think you can just make one????


STEP 7: PUNCH and SPONGE LEAVES - I almost forgot the leaves. Just fold a piece of Old Olive CS and punch out with your Large Oval Punch as illustrated. Then sponge your leaves with your Old Olive Ink Pad. Adhere the leaves behind the flower and you're done!






Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. Please visit my blog and my Stampin Up Website! Have a nice day!

Great tutorial. Now that I've made some, what do I do with them?

Glue dots are wonderful pals...hehe. Use them with this flowers and adhere your flowers onto your 3D projects like, matchbox die, milk carton box or any gift boxes or gift bags. Tie them with a matching ribbon with a card tag as attachments to your gifts or party favors... many possibilities with the flower.. make a bouquet or it can also be your homemade cake decoration instead of those sugar once.
