Flower Techniques (ribbon & paper)

FLOWER TUTORIAL
Ribbon & Paper Techniques

RIBBON FLOWERS

To create the ribbon flower, I cut a small square of cardboard and applied a dollop of my favorite quick dry glue. Starting in the center, I carefully wound the ribbon around until I had the flower as big and full as I wanted it. After the glued dried, I cut off the excess cardboard and added a brad in the center.

PAPER FLOWERS/DISTRESSING

Using my Cricut Expression and pattern paper, I cut three sizes of scalloped circles for each of the paper flowers. I cut little slits at each scallop to create petals. Using a piece of sponge, I applied Quick Quotes Powder Puffs ink to the edges and center of the flowers for a bit of variation of color in the flowers. I finished by stacking the three layers together and adhered with a brad. Once complete, I scrunched and curled the petals with my finger tips.
