I was asked several times to make a tutorial for easy and quick foamiran flowers suitable for scrapbook projects.
Here we go!
2 pieces of Fantasy openwork rose die set (the second large die with four petals and this one with three petals),
a flower making tool set,
two colours of foamiran (I chose strips of antic white and peach),
a glue gun + glue sticks,
a piece of kitchen sponge,
an oil pastel (I chose dark purple),
a soft pad (could be a kitchen sponge).
Cut out the petals. You need just one of the each size and colour.
Fold the smaller piece and shade its edges as it's shown on the picture.
Make small slits (3 or 4 mm) between petals of the white part towards its centre.
Heat and fold the small piece using a flower making tool.
After heating and bending your small part should look like this:
Now it's time to shape our big petals. Warm each petal separately and using flower making tool, push the petal with the ball into a soft surface to curve it.
As a result of these activities you should have those two shapes.
The next step is to prepare a bunch of stamens (3 double headed are pretty enough).
Attach the stamens into a small piece of florist wire and add the petals successively piercing them in the centre as it's shown on the picture.
Apply a little drop of glue between them and gently stick the petals. Don't pull the stamens to the very bottom of the petal.
Now your mini flower is ready! You can stick it onto your card or some other scrapbook project!
Thank you very much for coming again!
Wishing you a wonderful week!
