Welcome to Tutorial Tuesday.  Today Sue shows how to create velvet roses.

 The new Artisan Explorer can cut bulkier items like fabrics, velvet and mesh. You still may need to roll the plates through several times. Don’t worry if it is a little rough around the edges, the heat gun will melt the threads.

Materials Used:

Mesh or muslin 
Glimmer mists 
Hot Glue 
heat gun 
S5-050 Rose Creations 

Step 1

 Using Spellbinders Rose creations cut out 3 sizes of roses from velvet. You may have to pack extra cardstock and roll through several times to make a good cut. Cut 2 sizes of mesh or muslin as well 

Step 2

 Thread all layers onto a bunch of stamens. Use a little hot glue to adhere all the stalks together to make it easier. 

Step 3

 Spritz with Glimmer mist of your choice 

Step 4

Dry off with heat gun, to melt frayed edges and deepen colour. You can have a lot of fun using different fabrics and textiles to create wonderful layers, consider using a brad as the centre or even beads and buttons.
