A little share and a little tutorial...


I have had so much fun being guest DT over at Scraphappykat this month.. here is another share using the Glitz 'Dance in the Sunshine' range. I had so much fun with these goodies - they are just gorgeous colours and designs to work with...
I decided to make a giftbox for my mum for Mothers Day...

I thought I would also do a bit of a step by step on how I made those gorgeous cabbage roses.....

I used the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die but you could use any similar shape die or punch... I cut three of each of the three sizes (as pictured) and inked all the edges. I used the Glitz 'Dance in the Sunshine' papers for this rose.

On ONE of the largest sized flowers, cut it down just a little to give a little more variation in the size.

Using a piece of foam (or something soft) and the round tip of a sharpie pen, work each petal in a circular motion until it curls up.. medium pressure is good.

It takes a little while to get through all 9 flowers but I think it's so worth it! I put each flower into the palm of my hand and manipulate it a little more until it's just right. Also make sure you alternate the petals when assembling them. I joined them with hot glue 3 at a time and then nested those three lots into each other .. you may need tweezers to get it just right (and to get that tricky little pearl in the middle!

And that's it... too easy right?... if you want to make the smaller ones, you just cut 3 medium and 3 small flowers and follow the same steps ... Have fun making these gorgeous shabby cabbage roses!

We are off on holidays to Bali on Wednesday so I wont be around for a while.. I will be doing one more post.. if I get time lol!
