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
Liquid Glue
Martha Stewart Seal Punch


  • 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

    I’m going to post your blog address on the website that is keeping up with former “Recollection” shoppers (store in N. Richland Hills that closed and was owned by Michael’s). I know several people who would be interested in this. May I?
