I am often asked to show how I make the flowers I use on my paper projects. So because I was making a card today for a friend who recently lost her Gran and I wanted to include flowers I thought it was a good opportunity to show in a step by step process how I make small roses.
I use the Stampin' Up! Sizzix Originals Die - Blossom Party.
Using a hot glue gun or Towbow Glue if you don't have a gun I then stick the layers inside each other. Glue guns are good because you can work through the steps faster. Always make sure when you glue together that the petal placement is a little rotated and counterbalanced.
As a finishing touch I sometimes spray the flowers shimmer mist (to look like dew), occasionally I use Crystal Effects to look like drops of moisture and other times I simply touch random petals with Two-Way Glue then glitter with Dazzling Diamonds or Super Nova Glitter. You are only limited by your imagination.
I'll probably work on this one a little more to "train" it to sit how I want on the card.
Finally if you can't purchase the die I have used consider using other "daisy" style punches or dies. My recommendation is that you use Stampin' Up! cardstock however as the card is vitrified which means that it is died consistently the same colour all the way from the outside through the core. This means that you can distress and mold it exactly as you wish and maintain true colour.
Have fun and good luck
