I wanted this one to be a little different as the last two shares have been layouts so I decided to make a giftbox for my mum for Mothers Day...
I thought I would also do a bit of a step by step on how I made those gorgeous cabbage roses.....
I used the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die but you could use any similar shape die or punch... I cut three of each of the three sizes (as pictured) and inked all the edges. I used the Glitz 'Dance in the Sunshine' papers for this rose.
On ONE of the largest sized flowers, cut it down just a little to give a little more variation in the size.
Using a piece of foam (or something soft) and the round tip of a sharpie pen, work each petal in a circular motion until it curls up.. medium pressure is good.
It takes a little while to get through all 9 flowers but I think it's so worth it! I put each flower into the palm of my hand and manipulate it a little more until it's just right. Also make sure you alternate the petals when assembling them. I joined them with hot glue 3 at a time and then nested those three lots into each other .. you may need tweezers to get it just right (and to get that tricky little pearl in the middle!
