Cabbage Rose Tutorial

I'm love making my own handmade flowers. I was playing around with a technique that Lisa did with making Fiesta Flowers. And came up with theses little cabbage roses. I think they kinda look like the ones from Prima.

So here we go.....
I went with the Retro punches because they have the circle end that is needed. So, I'm not sure how other punches would work.

Punch out 2 of each size flower.

Lightly mist your punches....

While damp, take a rounded pen cap and push and roll into a mouse pad to get a little pocket in the middle of the petal.

Pull the petals up just a bit and let dry....

Do this to all the flowers except 1 of the smaller punch.

With the second small punch squeeze to make a bud.

Now, just start layering your flowers. Large to small and alternating the petals.

You can bend and pinch to get the look you would like.

Put the bud in the center of the other small punch.

Here it is all put together.

Punch out 5 leaves for the Martha Stewart punch and pink the tips.

Freehand cut a circle smaller than your flower and glue the leaves around. Then, glue your rose on top.

This part is optional. If you have Diamond dust or glitter, put some Glossy Accents on the tips and dip your flower into the tub or sprinkle the glitter.

There you go....a pretty little handmade Cabbage Rose!!



Thanks for stopping by!!

I know that any person coming to any of your profils on any site, they will walk away feeling the same as I do! Keep on creating and inspiring!! Always!
