Paper Flower Tutorial

I have been asked many times to show how to make this very simple flower tutorial, I actually saw a similar-ish one being made a few years ago, when I attended a small local crafts event and when I came home, got straight to making my own version (so that I wouldn't forget) I adjusted it here and there adding my own tweaks to it. I've been making them ever since for projects (for example recently here) and workshops and now finally, Ive put it in writing (and pictures) and alas my paper flower tutorial is born!!

I have witten step by step notes and taken lots of pictures to match, in the hope that it fully explains and covers it, but email me if you have any probs. or need me to explain further. You can also click on the picture to enlarge it. So here goes.....

*******************************
1. Here are the main materials you will need; paper – I have used just plain red construction paper (of course you can use any colour!), dries clear glue, large 6 petal flower punch (or any six petal shape, sizzix, craft robo etc etc), glitter or stickles glitter, Fired brick distress ink pad, small piece of cut ’n dry foam and a cocktail stick (image 1)


2. Punch out 3 of the flower punch, make folds in them as in the picture to obtain the center (image 2)



3. In the first flower, just snip down the side of one of the petals to the middle, in the second flower punch cut away one petal and in the third flower cut away 2 of the petals (image 3)



4. At this stage using your cut ‘n dry foam with the fired brick ink pad, distress all the flower petals around the edges (image 4, 5)




5. Then using your dries clear glue, place some glue onto one of the petals of each of the three flowers and glue one petal over the other as in the picture - make sure you do this on the wrong side of the petals so that when they are glued down you do not cover the sides you have just distressed - (image 6,7,8)





6. Using your cocktail stick, curl all of the petals of each flower, of which there should be 3 (image 9,10,11)





7. You will now need to snip pointy ends off the two smaller flowers – do not snip the biggest flower as this is your base flower (image 12,13,14)





8. Then take the largest flower and add some dries clear glue to the middle, place the next size down flower and place on top, again, place some dries clear glue to the middle of that and place the smaller flower on top and just hold them in place a few second for the glue to adhere. (image 15,16,17,18)






9. With the two petal (i.e the heart shaped piece) again with the cocktail stick curl the petal edges and then keep one curled but, straighten out the other (image 19,20)


Now bring the shape together to make a funnel shape, but not too tight (image 21)

and place some clear dries glue to adhere the edge in place (image 22,23) (if at this stage the straight side of the petal is too straight, using your cocktail stick just gently curl that petal)

and as before snip the pointy end off (image 24)



10. Finally for the single petal, using the cocktail stick, curl the petal at the sides this time (image 25,26)


and also snip the pointy end off (image 27)

and place it in the middle of your flower, securing it in place with some dries clear glue as before (image 28)


The rose is almost complete, now for the final touches.


11. Cut out two leaves either with a die cut, or a punch or even draw it by hand and cut it out, I have used my wizard flower set die in this instance, but any similar leaf shape will do (image 29)

with a bone folder give the leaf some shape (image 30)

decide where you want to place them add some dries clear glue and adhere them in place (image 31,32,33)





12. And finally take your stickles glitter and randomly place some around the petals or even add some dots of glossy accents to resemble raindrops (image 34,35)



YOUR FLOWER IS COMPLETE - now you have the basis of constructing you can adapt it to suit your projects, I have made smaller ones, different colour, different papers i.e patterened & tissue papers, distress some of the petal edges with a distress tool for a worn look it goes on and on......


I do hope you enjoy this tutorial, I would love to hear your comments and what you think about it, and I'd absolutely love to see any of your projects created with this tutorial.

Terimakasih Admin atas informasinya. saya sangat senang membacanya karena sangat menarik. baca juga artikel saya salah satunya obat bius merupakan salah satu obat medis yang sudah di kenal sejak lama biasanya para dokter menggunakanya sebagai senjata utama saat operasi agar pasien tidak merasakan sakit apapun juga bisa di gunakan untuk mengatasi orang yang mengalami gangguan jiwa sedang mengamuk agar bisa tenang
namun para remaja lebih menyukai berbentuk obat bius cair dengan alasan guna mengatasi ganguan hubungan rumah tangga karena banyak sekali salah satu dari pasangan merasakan kebosanan hubungan intim hal inilah yang menjadikan kurang harmonis.
tetapi ada yang salah kaprah untuk membedakanya soal obat tidur dengan sama jenisnya padahal kegunaanya berbeda sebab obat tidur sebagai bahan pokok mengatasi insomnia atau susah tidur dan obat bius untuk membuat orang pingsan.
tentunya obat tidur juga banyak jenisnya seperti obat tidur cair cara menggunakanya di campurkan ke minuman cukup di kasihb 5 tetes saja ke dalam satu botol minuman tinggal di aduk merata.

artikel yang saya baca ini sangan membantu buat saya juga menambah masukan.
saya ingin sedikit berbagi pengalaman soal obat bius yang sangat populer di tahun ini karena banyak sekali keluhan dari konsumen masalah kurang harmonis dalam hubungan pasutri. bagi anda yang mengalami hal tersebut janganlah berkecil hati karena kami akan mengatasinya dengan jual obat bius asli germany yang mempu membuat wanita pingsan sekaligus merangsang akan naik gairah seksual yang dahsyat.

banyak ada yang salah menilai obat bius itu sama khasiatnya dengan obat tidur akan tetapi sangatlah berbeda fungsinya sudah jelas untuk mengatasi insomnia atau susah tidur karena memang penyakit tersebut sangatlah tidak enak bahkan bisa menyebabkan mata menjadi buram juga berkurangnya nafsu makan.

tetapi bagi anda yang mengalami ganguan susah tidur tidak usah kawatir sebab kami jual obat tidur yang sudah puluhan tahun menjadi kepercayaan bagi konsumen dengan layanan ramah juga sopan karena kepuasan konsumen adalah pilihan utama. obat tidur cair salah satunya yang mempunyai kandungan khusus mampu membuat orang cepat tertidur hingga lelap sekaligus bisa menyembuhkan penyakit insomnia.
