HANDMADE FLOWER- VIDEO
1. Use a pink ink to stamp the smallest three flowers. Stamp the largest of the three two times. I did not use the largest two flowers in the set for this piece. 2. Use the Tattered Blossoms dies to cut the flowers. 3. Spray each flower with Wheatfields Glimmer Mist. 4. Set aside one of the largest flowers. We'll call it A. While the other flowers are still wet, gently twist each petal. Dry all flowers, including A, with a heat gun. Once A is dry, use an embossing stylus to curl the tips under. 5. Flower A is the bottom layer. Layer and glue the center from largest to smallest. Gently pull up all petals for fluff and dimension. 6. Attach a button the center. 7. Tie bow from twine and attach the bow to the button with Glossy Accents.
