Super easy layered handmade flower tutorial



Hi, this is Juhi and I am going to show how to make these layered flowers. I get a lot of queries from non-regular crafters on how to make and embellish cards for their loved ones......so I decided to post a tutorial on how make handmade flowers using material which is easily available at home. These flowers can be made in less than 5 minutes and require no fancy craft tools or supplies!
Things required:
1. Thick handmade paper/cardstock ( I used a wedding invitation envelope).
2. Scissors
3. Glue
4. Stapler (optional)
5. Something for the flower center - buttons/half cut pearls/beads.....
6. Paint brush or a pen - this will be used to roll the flower petals
Roughly cut out 3 circles of different sizes (my biggest circle has a 2 inch diameter).....these circles don't have to be perfect (mine are freehand).....I have used the printed side of the wedding invite to add some color.
Give 6-7 equally spaced radial cuts on the circles. be careful not to cut till the center but slightly less than that. These will be the flower petals
Roll the petals around the end of a paint brush or pen.
Stack the rolled layers and staple in the center.
Make the flower center with a button/half cut beads or whatever you like and your flower is ready! Increase or decrease the number of layers to get bigger or smaller flowers.
I hope this was easy enough.....do lemmi know if it was not!
Thanks for visiting!
