Glue – I use my glue gun
Glimmer mist or perfect pearls mist
Gems or Stickles, something for the centers of the flowers
First you need to cut out six petals, I use my cricut but you can use what you have to punch out the flowers.
2 at 1 ¾ inches
2 at 1 ½ inches
1 at 1 ¼ inches
Next step: I ink the petals around the outter edges a bit, then I mist the petals with water. You take the skewer and roll the petals towards you and pinch them at the same time. They will look like this after this step is done.
I then pinch and twist each petal and after that is done I ink the twisted part just a bit more. Now you can let them dry for about 15 minutes or so but I get impatient and use my heat gun on them so that I can finish them up right away. This is what they look like at this point now.
The next step is you glue all the petals together(I actually use my glue gun), alternating which way each petal goes. Then you just dab a bit of stickles in the center and add a gem or pearl to it. For a nice pearly finish I like to spray the completed flowers with Perfect Pearls or Glimmer mist.
These take about 10 minutes to make and really they are so simple. I love the look of them. Here is a layout with some of the flowers on it. Have fun with them.
