Ornament Punch Flower Tutorial
Hi there! I just can't resist making these flowers this morning as soon as I found them in Stamping Connection. The credit goes to Rhea Anderson. Just to share with you how much fun I had, I'm giving you this Step-By-Step illustrated tutorial of the punched flower.
- Ornament Punch #116794
- 1-3/8" Circle Punch #104401
- Tombow Multi Purpose Glue #110755 or Crystal Effects Glue #101055 p.192 (IBC)
- Whisper White CS #100730 p.155 (IBC)
- Optional: Sponge #101610 p.192 for sponging the tips of the flower
Step 1 : Punch out all the Ornament Punch you may punch in 1 sheet Whisper White CS then curl them as illustrated, with a pen.
Step 2: Then glue the ornament petal pieces onto the 1-3/8" circle as illustrated. And work inward onto the center of the flower.
Step 3: As you go closer into the middle, you will need to curl your ornament petals around a pen as illustrated. You will need more curl.
Step 4: To glue the center pieces, assist with a pen as illustrated to press down the center of the flower.
Step 5: As soon as you're done with the flower, I like crunching it this way so the petals will curl together in harmony.
Voila!!! We have a beautiful flower! You may also want to sponge the edges of your petals to make it lovelier. I hope this helps!!! Have fun making them :)
