Hello. Don't know about you guys, but I hate winter... however, since I started crafting I quite enjoy long evenings at my desk - creating....
And this is what I created the other night - lovely 3D vellum flowers!!
They are very easy and pretty quick to make.
here is what you need:
- vellum A4 sheet
- flower stamp
- matching flower punch
- ink pad
- candy dot brad base
- scoring tool
So, firstly, you stamp your flower image onto the velum. My flower was quite big so I managed to fit 12 flowers on one sheet, and I used them all for just 1 flower.
You can use more if you want....
You need to wait for the ink to dry. It takes about 10 mins - just make sure its all dry before you start cutting out those flowers with your puncher, otherwise you will get smudges....
next, using your brad base pierce through the middle of each flower. Stack them up together and secure the brad base - see the picture below.
Next, using a scoring tool, shape the petals. I started from the top. I shaped all the petals towards the middle as you can see in the picture. when you get to the last 3 petals, leave one as it is - straight, unshaped, turn the flower over so that you have the bottom at the top and now shape the first 2 flowers towards the middle. that will give the whole flower a bit more 'volume'. it will look bigger and fuller - I hope you know what I mean....
and there you have it.
I absolutely love these little cuties! U can use them in many projects. they are quite sturdy so you can be sure they will keep their shape for ages!!
