Feather Flowers by Vicky

Vicky here blogging today. This is a layout of my daughter at 6 months "Beautiful" (using old MME papers from my stash) and a brand new flower tutorial "Diva Feather Flowers" that I created.

This layout also features embellies from my Etsy shop NOW OPEN! My shop is listed under my full name vickyalberto at Lori will be featuring some of my scrappy supplies in upcoming Scrap That! kits so stay tuned!

To get started you'll need 7-8 short craft feathers, one medium and one large punched paper flower (any die cut with separated petals will do), tweezers, water for misting (or color mist instead of inking the edges) and glue. My flowers are 2 and 3 inches for these. You'll also need a brad or decorative center of choice.

Step 1: As with most of my flowers, ink the edges and then slightly water mist. Using your tweezers, twist and push the petals towards the middle then give it a slight pinch into place. Let completely dry.

Step 2: Slightly unravel the petals of your flowers and glue feathers in the petal separations of the larger flower. Let dry.

Step 3: Glue the medium flower onto the large feathered flower and then also glue a few feathers to fill in blank spots. Let dry.

Finally, add your brad or decorative center and you're done!

I hope you enjoy making these fun little embellies and thanks for stopping by. Be sure to check out my other flower tutorials on my personal blog at - they are all listed on the top right side with quick links. Happy scrapping!
