My dear club members here in Vegas will get a chance to do some hands-on paper flowers over the course of the next few months as I sprinkle them here and there. In August, they will get to make this card with the paper rose and Zippidee paper! (Thanks Bren for teaching me)
Here's a step-by-step of how to make a paper rose.
Step1: Start with a 3.5" x 3.5" (or any square) piece of patterened paper (I used Bella Paper for my example).
Step 2: Hand tear a circle from your square.
Step 3: Starting on the outside edge, tear a spiral around to the center of the circle.
Step 4: Starting on the outside, start rolling the paper as shown... it won't look like much of a rose to begin with.
Step 5: Loosen the spiral and start to 'crunch down' or flatten the outside edges of the rose as desired.
Step 6: Once you have the rose shape you are looking for, then use Liquid Glass to hold the rose together and then to the mat paper you wish to mount it to. Add some hand-made leaves and you've got a paper rose!
If you're in the Vegas area and want to join me, the T-N-T card class will be on Thursday, August 12th at 6:30pm for only $5. I will be teaching 2 techniques and we'll be making 3-4 cards that night! Please RSVP to my at my email email@example.com by Monday, August 9th. Thanks!
