Flower Tutorial 3

This one is made using the Retro Flower punch. I know alot of you will have these punches in your stash, if not I'm sure you can make it with any other flower punch or die cut.

1. Here's what you need.2. Add a bit of colour to your flower shapes if you're using plain card or paper. I like to use distress inks for a suble shade.
3. Carfully cut down into each petal on all your layers.4/5. Once you've cut them all, fiddle with them a bit to make the petals stand up.
6/7. Add a blob of glue to the centre of each layer and repeat with all the layers.
8/9. Finish off with a gem in the flower centre, I should've used a bigger gem really. You can fluff the petals us more once you've attached it to your card.

Hi Karen, great tutorial. Just love those flowers - I only have 2 tiny flower punches and have to cut all my flower shapes by hand but I am sure I could apply your method just the same. Thanks.

Smashing tutorial, lovely flower and I love the technical term "fiddle with them a bit" - I just might have to have a go at this one. Thanks for sharing your flower tips.
