How To Make a Cute Flower

Hi Everyone,
I thought i would share some photos of how to make the really cute flower i shared with you the other day!
I was making a box to put my mum's mothers day gift in and thought the flower would make a really great embelishment!!!

I have used Mothers Bouquet to cute the flower layers:

I am LOVING this cartridge! So great for making 3D flowers! I Purchased my Cartridge From Belinda on Ebay Click HERE to visit her store, she has AMAZING Price for in Australia on all Cricut Items, if she doesnt have it listed send her a message!

1. Cut 6 of the same flower at varying sizes, i start with 2.5in and went down in size to 1.6in
2. Using Versa Mark Watermark Stamp pad ink around the edges of the flowers, it gives a great contrasting colour!
3. Using A large Ball embossing tool (Or i have been using my Basic Grey Rubon Tool that has a ball point on one end!!!!) Shape the flower petals.


4.To give the flowers more shape i pinch the middle of each petal
5. You then start layering the flowers gluing as you go, when you get to the last 2 you will need to squeeze them more together.
6. You then get your finished flower

These look great on Cards that you can hand deliver, i think they would be too bulky for the mail or scrapbooking layouts!!

I have used this one on a box i made for my Mums Mothers day gift


Hope you have enjoyed this post! Comments welcomed :)
