It's time again for another tutorial.  This week I've created a flower using the Spellbinder die-Floral Doily Motifs. 

Materials Used:

Bazzill Basics Paper:

1-105 E Petalsoft
1-138E Romance
303259 Vintage Vines Embossed


S5-041 Floral Doily Motifs

Other Materials Used:

Ancient Page Coral Red Inkpad
Colorbox Inking Brush
Embossing Stylus
Heat Tool
Mini Mister
Mouse Pad


Step One:

To make the two different sized flowers, I've used a combination of the three dies below.
For each large flower cut one of each.  For each small flower cut two of the smallest.

Step Two:

Prepare your "flower layers" by cutting the pieces as shown in the photograph.

Step Three:

Using the inking brush and inkpad  Dab the edges of each of the"flower layers" 

Step Four:

Using the mini Mister, Spritz each of the "flower layers" with water, doing both sides.
Let the water soak in for a few seconds, and then scrunch each one up and then very carefully unfold.
Dry with your heat tool.

Step Five:

Using an embossing stylus and mouse pad, carefully press the centres of each "flower layer."

To assemble stack the layers on top of each other making sure the "petals" are opposing.
Secure with adhesive and add a pearl to the centre.
