I haven’t felt like scrapping much this week and have had a Flower Making Bug! I love making these little Grunge type Flowers so I thought I would make a little Step By Step Tutorial for you to try them yourself!
Supplies Needed – A scallop punch, dies or just make some circles if you don’t have punches, some ink, a paper piecer, brads, misting bottle and water, Stickles are opptional!
Step 1 – Punch six of the scallops from your pp, sheet music, book pages cs etc!
Step 2 – Spray with water lightly so they are mosit! If you haven’t a spray bottle just pop them in and out of a container with water!
Step 3 – Squish in your fingers to crumple them!
This is how they will look!
Step 4 – Open them up and if desired ink around the edges of scallops to give them some definition!
Step 5 – Layer them together on top of one another!
Step 6 – Using a paper piecer or something sharp, carefully put a hole in the centre through all the layers! At this step if they are a bit dry you could glue the layers instead!
Step 7 – Using a brad or a fastener of some sort, push thorough the middle and secure at back!
Step 8 – Crumple each layer with your fingers into the centre!This is how your little flower will look now! Step 9 – Using your fingers or a tool, gently pull the flower apart to separate the petals! Be a bit gentle as not to tear them! You could open them a little more and add some gems or buttons for their centres!
Step 10 – Ta-dahh, your own finished Distressed Grunge Flower! You can now put some Stickles on the edges of petals if desired and set them aside to dry!
I hope you could follow my tutorial and you have fun like I have, making a few for my layouts and cards! I used double-sided pp, book and music pages and cardstock scraps from my stash!!!!
