Flower Tutorial by Scrap That! Artist Darien Anderson

Hi Everyone!!! this is Darien! I Have a tutorial to share and hope you girls enjoy it!! Have Fun!!
I made this LO using these flowers, and I'm going to show you how to make them!! They are really easy!!!

What you need

Using the Tim Holtz alterations Dies You need to cut 2 Flowers of the Bigger one and 1 of the smallest one Using the paper of your choice.

Then you can Ink or Mist the flowers

Make folds in the 2 large flowers as in the picture to obtain the center

Only in one flower just snip down the side of one of the petals.

Place some glue onto one of the petals

Glue that petal behind the petal next to it as shown in the picture

Curl the petals of all the flowers using your fingers.

Punch a small hole in the center of each flower

Put some glue on the flower that has 6 petals, that one is going to be the largest layer of your flower.

Place the 5 petals flower on top and then the smallest one

Then place a cluster from a spray through the holes (or brad, pearl, etc.)

Cut the ends of your spray and place a glue dot on top of the ends to secure it.

Now, your flower is complete.

PS. You can do this flower with any 6 petal flower die or punch.
