Morning girls, boys and crafty grown ups.....
Friday again and no idea why it's here again so, so fast! Changing the running order a little today as I have had a bit of a hectic week - totally unplanned as usual but that's life, so I'm going to do today what I had planned for the weekend and to top that off am going to put a challenge up to 'big people' as well as you girls and boys.
Here's what we're going to do; below I'm going to show you, step-by-step, how to create a no cut/no punch flower using a piece of beautiful Craftwork Cards paper. When you have created your flower/flowers the challenge will be to incorporate it/them into a card and send us a picture of your creation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let's get started:
Take your sheet of paper and tear in 4 pieces
Scrunch each piece as tightly as you can
Uncurl pieces but don't flatten too much.....
Tear a rough circles from each piece, making each a little smaller than the last
Don't throw out the bits from around the edges, we're going to use them too.....
tear off the corners from your left over trimmings
With the coloured side facing you roll up, folding paper back where you have wider pieces. When rolled let go and then glue end to side to form a 'bud'
Layer up your scrunched circles popping a dot of glue between each
Glue bud into centre
Catch flower between thumb and index finger and give a little squeeze to add a little more shape
A finished no cut/no punch flower
I promise to enter into the fun and made a card from my flower too....... have fun! Back tomorrow with a paper/Candi jewellery tutorial. Happy crafting, bet you boys and girls can beat us older 'big' people - don't forget to send your pictures........
