Making DIY Scrapbook Flower's With ScraPerfect
Hello fellow crafters, Penny here with a "Do it Yourself" Scrapbook flower making tutorial.
It's no secret to my follower's that I LOVE making DIY Scrapbook,/paper flowers! These are a few of my favorite punches to make flower's with. I use lot's of manufactures, from Martha Stewart, Marvy Uchida, etc. I really do adore my punches, and use them almost daily.
Now to start off I pick out the color paper I want my flowers to be. For this project I chose a tan cardstock. I don't use heavy weight cardstock because I think it makes it too hard on my punches. So I normally punch out the largest section of the flower first. Then I get out my exacto knife.
As you do this the petals on your flower will start to curl up, just like the petals of a real flower. I do this will all parts of my flower.
You will see how they are curl, and fit together. If you want a tighter looking flower just keep circling till you get your desired effect.
This process works for almost all punched shapes, but for some of the more intricate pieces you have to be careful so they don't tear during the curling process.
I use ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever to hold my flowers in place until I decide what I want to use in the center of my flowers. I also use this glue around the edges of my petals if I want to dip the petal edges in glitter. These are some of the kind's of Tiny Embellishments that I would also use to decorate my flowers. After you are done you can use brads, buttons, gems, or just about anything for the center of your flowers.
.I hope you have fun making your own flower's, and till next time Happy Scrapping. Love Penny
