I used my Home Decor cart and cut the 6 petal flower from the shadow shift feature @ 4 inches. The flower is really only about 1 1/2 inches but because this is actually a flower center I had to cut it at a larger size. Any six petal cut will work, you may even have a simple punch. You will need two flowers in the same size to create this bloom.
First, you will cut a slit in one layer, overlap the petals and glue. Next, using a a skewer curl all the petals under.
Then simply glue the two layers together. This will create a six petal bottom with a 5 petal top....Now another version.....
For this version you will slit one layer and then cut one petal from the second layer, overlap each and glue....You can see the cut layers along with the glued layers here.
Once again you will simply glue the two layers together. This will create a bloom with a 5 petal bottom and a 4 petal top.
Now lets add a little fun.....Choose a chalk in a similar color or a contrasting color to add some shading to the center of each layer.
I used some store bought stamen and a floral pic to create my centers.
What ever you decide to use will be glued to the center of the flower.....I like mixing it up bit so I added different types of centers to create some different looks.
Finally, I added some stickles in a variety of patterns to all of my blooms. I found that making several of these at a time really is the best way to create a little stash of flowers....but you know me....I'll probably end up using them all on one layout...LOL!
Hope this little tutorial was inspiring to you....have a great weekend!
