Book Page Flower Tutorial…

May 8, 2009

Okay those of you that love to make flow­ers here is another tuto­r­ial. I really hope you all show me what you cre­ated with these tuto­ri­als. I would love for you to share how you use these to embell­ish your projects, cards, tags or lay­outs. Next week will be another week of tuto­ri­als just not sure what the theme will be… cer­tainly will be think­ing about it over the week­end. Wish­ing you all the best. Enjoy!

Finished Flower Embellishment

Sup­plies Needed:
Sizzix Die (Flower Lay­ers #3)
2 — Old Book Pages
Col­or­Box Fluid Chalk Ink (Creamy Brown)
Maya Mists (Iri­des­cent Pearl, Sil­ver Metal­lic)
Plat­inum Stick­les
1 — Large Pearl Cabo­chon or But­ton
Stu­dio 490 Wendy Vec­chi Funky Flower Art Leaf Stamp
Cream Felt
Embroi­dery Floss (DMC #543)

Tools Needed:
Sewing Nee­dle
Fabri-Tac
Liq­uid Glue
Martha Stew­art Seal Punch

Instruc­tions:

  • Cut 2 flow­ers of each design from an old book page

Cut Flowers

  • Using Col­or­Box Fluid Chalk Ink (Creamy Brown), ink the edges of each flower. After you are fin­ished ink­ing the flow­ers crum­ple each one in your hand and straighten out just a bit. This will help cre­ate dimen­sion to your flower. Place flow­ers in a news­pa­per lined box or line your kitchen sink with paper tow­els. Using Maya Mist Iri­des­cent Pearl lightly mist each flower, let dry slightly, now using Maya Mist Sparkling Sil­ver lightly mist each flower once again, let dry. Once the flow­ers are dry accent the edges of each one using Plat­inum Stick­les, let dry

Lightly Inked and Crumpled Flowers

  • Using a liq­uid glue attach each flower layer on top of each other as desired

Misted and Accented Flowers

  • Using the Martha Stew­art Seal Punch, punch a seal out of an old Book Page and attach to the back of the flower using. (This will give the Large Pearl Cabo­chon some­thing to attach to.)

Flower Back

  • Using a strong liq­uid glue attach a Large Pearl Cabo­chon to the cen­ter of your lay­ered flower. (If you do not have a large pearl you can sub­sti­tute this with a large but­ton, gem or rhine­stone)

Attached Pearl Center

  • Using Col­or­Box Fluid Chalk Ink (Creamy Brown) lightly stamp leaf image onto cream felt and hand stitch image

Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi Leaf Stamp

  • Using Fabri-Tac, attach leaf to the back of your Lay­ered Flower
