Hello crafters! Luciana is here today, showing you how to create a little paper bouquet that could be a perfect piece of decor for your home! You could even collect several tiny bouquets in a single vase and have a blossoming centerpiece –– perfect for Spring!
Here is the tutorial:
Step 1. Die cut from White Soft Finish Cardstock 1 set of Garden Notes – English Rose (except the stems and 2 times the leaves).
Step 2. Color them as shown below, adding a more deep color around the external edges of the petals
Step 3. Shape all the pieces for the corollas.
Use the loop tool and the mold pad to add some details to all the petal, making lines from the outside to the inside. Turn the pieces on the back side, and then use the ball tool and the mold pad on the upper part of the petals, creating a ripple on the paper.
Step 4. Prepare the rose.
Overlap the two pieces with the 3 petals, then start to add all the petals, from the larger to the smaller one. Wrap the last petal, the triangular one,
to create a sort of central bud. When the rose is ready and the glue very dry, put the flower on a florist stem wire.
Step 5. Prepare the leaves.
Add the vein to the leaves, using the leaf tool and the leaf pad. Then glue them on a florist stem wire. Glue also some green polystyrene balls on the stem wire, with a different length .
Step 6. Create the bouquet. Put together all the pieces and wrap the floral tape around the stems.
I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial! Thank you for stopping by.
