What I love most about the stunning range of spellbinder flower dies is you can make flowers that would cost a small fortune in the stores for a fraction of the cost. I have fallen in love with the bitty blossoms dies and would like to show you how I make my rosebud blossoms from them.


Products Used -(To make rosebuds) 
  
Bazzill Basics Paper: 

10-1001 White 

Spellbinders: 

S5-086 Bitty Blossoms


Step One: 

Using your Bitty blossoms dies cut out your desired size. I have cut out the largest and the next size down to show you some variation.


Step Two: 




Hold the outer end of the spiral with the point of the tweezers and start rolling it up keeping it nice and tight. 

Step Three:



Let the spiral go and it will unroll slightly. 

Step Four:



 Using a hot melt glue gun place a dob of glue on the little circular part and secure.

Step Five:


Spritz the finished blossom with some water and gently bend the petals out to give a more realistic shape.

Step Six: 



Add your leaves if you wish gluing them to the bottom and give them a little shape to if you like. 

Now for the real fun you can pretty up your blossom with distress inks, mist, glitter, embossing powders/pastes whatever your heart desires, or you can just leave it as is.
