Welcome to Tutorial Tuesday.  Today Alicia shares a floral vine made from Spiral Blossom. 

Products Used:


Spiral Blossom 

Other Materials Used:

Floral wire 
Floral tape - narrow and wide gauge 

 Step 1: 

Die cut a variety of spiral blossoms. Adhere floral wire to the end of the spiral and poke hole into the base. Allow to dry, then thread the wire into the hole before rolling up the flower and securing with adhesive. Repeat for each flower. 

 Step 2: 

Cut the foliage die cut into individual leaves. Adhere matching leaves back to back, with a section of thin wire sandwiched between them. Create curls by wrapping wire around a pencil.

 Step 3: 

Gather your first 2-3 pieces and begin wrapping floral tape from the top down, to secure them together. 

 Step 4: 

Add extra flowers, leaves and curls one a time, including it into the floral tape.

 Step 5: 

Continue until all your pieces have been included into the vine. Adhere the floral tape at the end. 

 Step 6:

 Use wire cutters to trim the base of the vine. Manipulate each piece by bending the wire until you are happy with the way the vine sits.
