Tissue Tape Flower

May 13, 2011

Supplies Used: Tim Holtz Tissue Tape, Vellum (pink & beige), Maya Road White Rose Organza Trim, Clear Drying Adhesive, Fabric-Tac

Tools Needed: Scallop Scissors, Scissors, Sewing Machine, Fiskars Scallop Circle Punch, Paper Trimmer

Instructions:

  • Attach strips of Tissue Tape onto a piece of beige vellum cut to approx. 5″ x 8.5″. Make sure to attach the strips as close to each other as possible. You don’t want to have spaces in between each Tissue Tape strip.

  • Draw a 3″ tear drop shaped petal onto a scrap piece of paper to use as a template, cut out, using a pencil trace 6 petals onto the back of the vellum covered with Tissue Tape pieces.
  • Using straight edge scissors cut out each petal.
  • Using a paper trimmer cut 6 pieces of pink vellum to approx. 2″ x 3.5″, place one petal onto the center of each pink piece of vellum then sew a straight stitch around the inside edge of each of the Tissue Tape petals.
  • Using scallop scissors trim around the edge of the Tissue Tape petal as close to the edge of the Tissue Tape as possible. This will help keep the scallop trim even all around the edge of your petals.
  • Using a scallop circle punch, punch out two circles, place adhesive onto the center of one circle and begin attaching each petal to this circle.

  • Attach the remaining scallop circle to the top center of the flower using a clear drying adhesive, next attach 6 white organza trim roses to the top of the scallop circle. I cut each rose from the trim and then attached using Fabri-Tac.

If you don’t want to create a petal template you can use any of the Sizzix flower dies and or other shapes to create unique embellishments using this same technique. The tissue tape can also be tinted using Copic Markers or any of the Distress Stains.

Have fun playing and enjoy your weekend. If you want to have some scrappy fun join Cocoa Daisy for their online crop this weekend. Everyone there has lots of fun things planned. Just look at this schedule below.

    Love this flower and will give it a try. What kind of scallop scissors do you use? My scissors would not cut the vellum that neatly.
